Steroids – Should I Shouldn’t I?

There has been a lot of talk about steroids in the bodybuilding community lately.  Along with that talk comes a zillion questions, the biggest one “should I or shouldn’t I”

Everyone knows what they are and what they do at a basic level…. It enhances performance and builds incredible amounts of muscle and burns stubborn fat- look around in your local gym. Pretty sure there are one or two people using steroids.  It’s quite common for doctors to prescribe anabolic steroids to patients with certain kinds of anaemia or in cases where males don’t produce enough testosterone naturally. But, never do doctors prescribe such steroids to younger, healthy individuals for the purpose of building muscle.

There are many different kinds of steroids, but the steroids of choice for the bodybuilding community globally are Dianabol, Winstrol, Dec-durabolin just to name a few. On the street they are commonly referred to as roids, juice and gear.

Now that we know what steroids are and the more popular kinds off steroids – should you use anabolic steroids? Well, first I would ask yourself if you’re aware of the side effects of anabolic steroids? Guys, are you aware through use of anabolic steroids you can develop breasts? Or have your testicles shrink? How about decreased sperm rate, infertility or even cause you to become impotent. Ladies may grow excessive body hair, have their voices deepen, reduced breast size and menstrual irregularities.

There are possible side effects which are not gender specific as well, side effects such as acne, hair loss, enlarged heart, liver disease and liver cancer, mood swings and what’s commonly called “roid rage”.

There has been an ongoing debate as to whether anabolic steroids are dangerous or not. Whether or not you decide anabolic steroids are for you, make an informed decision… Ge all the facts and consult a physician.
