The American public believes that teenagers are facing much more serious problems in high schools today than the threat of anabolic steroids according to a study published by the Center for Social Development and Education (CSDE) at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Americans were incredibly accurate in their assessment. However, CSDE researchers refused to accept this. Instead, they became advocates guilty of pandering to the anti-steroid organizations that funded their research.
Anabolic Steroid Articles
Our steroid articles provided detailed, practical information on how anabolic steroids are used to build size and strength. They cover topics such as the history of steroids, steroids in baseball, the medical uses of steroids including testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), the side effects of steroids and how to manage steroid side effects.
To say the movie reinforces negative bodybuilding stereotypes is an understatement. “Pain & Gain“ is bad for bodybuilders. And it is even worse for steroid users. Bodybuilders aren’t just portrayed as dumb, their stupidity seemingly has no limits. Steroid users aren’t just portrayed as prone to “roid rage”, the extent of their violence is utterly sadistic.
I am 42-years old and currently on 100-milligrams of testosterone enanthate per week as part of a testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) prescribed by my doctor. I plan on remaining on TRT indefinitely. But I’d like to have a little boost. I am currently 220-lbs but my goal is to return my physique to my younger days when I was a lean 245-lbs. Would adding Masteron help?
Q: Is Masteron or Equipoise the better steroid to gain muscle? A: The answer depends on how it’s being looked at. Effectiveness milligram per milligram: One way is, having the rest of a stack already, and wanting to add X mg of boldenone, or the same mg of Masteron. To some extent it would depend [...]
The biggest problem with the war on steroids and the war on doping is that it is a moral crusade masquerading as an initiative for protecting the health of athletes. Anti-doping warriors are primarily concerned with enforcing a moral code. The moral code involves the prohibition of drugs that enhance performance. It is not a code based on health and harm reduction.
Steroid users are “cheaters” who use drugs to defy the limitations that nature has imposed. Breast enhancement via implants, sexual enhancement via Viagra, cognitive enhancement via Adderall are all about the American Dream of bigger boobs, better boners and brighter brains; bigger, better bodies assisted by steroids, however, are simply not on the American agenda.
Do anabolic steroids cause kidney damage? A few years ago, the New York Times had a story suggesting that steroids could have been responsible for focal segmental glomerulosclerosis in a few IFBB pro bodybuilders. Bodybuilder Flex Wheeler had a kidney transplant. Bodybuilder Luke Wood died of complications from a kidney transplant. What role, if any, did steroids play?
The deadly fungal meningitis outbreak has been linked to contaminated injectable solution of the corticosteroid methylprednisolone acetate. It has been a tragedy for the families involved. For anti-steroid crusaders, it has simply provided another tool to unfairly demonize anabolic steroids. The fungal meningitis infections were solely due to contaminated epidural injection directly into the CNS. Anabolic steroids are injected intramuscularly.
Many athletes who get caught using steroids choose to convert into anti-doping crusaders. Charlie Francis, best known as Ben Johnson’s coach at the 1998 Seoul Olympics, refused to apologize and repent. Instead, he chose to tell the truth: steroid use is still pervasive and practically a requirement at the top. To tell athletes differently would be a lie.
