Steroids, Should You Take Them?

Firs at all don t get me wrong, i m not telling to no one here to take steroids. But there so many people using them, or thinking to use them, and no one, neither ay or any doctors wont stop them to take steroids.

The thing that ay try to discus here, is why should not take steroids, or if you are thinking to use steroids, is that really for you. Also ay em going to discus what are anabolic steroids and what are the negative side effects of steroids, and should someone use steroids and why.

What are anabolic steroids

Steroids are synthetic hormones that your body produces naturally like cortisone, it signals the body to brake down inflammation. Birth control peals are steroids to, made from female sex hormone estrogen and progesterone. But the steroids that get all that negative attention are anabolic steroids, made from male sex hormone testosterone. Anabolic steroids can boost the body's ability to produce muscle and accelerate the muscle recovery after workout. Athletes take steroids to improve their ability to run faster, hit farther, lift heavier weights, jump higher, or have more endurance.

Negative side effects

Like any drug, anabolic steroids have side effects, and if you abuse them the side effects will be even worse.

For men they can cause:

All these side effects are reversible, when you get over the drug.

  • acne
  • hair growth
  • raise cholesterol
  • shrink testicles
  • lower your sperm count
  • gynecomastia

Side affect that are not really proven

  • cancer
  • kidney failure
  • liver problems (high doses of oral steroids)
  • hart disease
  • aggression (they can not make you psychotic)

Why are steroids illegal / should they be legal?

Some of you will say now, what are you talking about! Drugs that can cause cancer, should be legal?! Don t get me wrong, ay em not telling that should be legal, but on the other hand at what point do we say that behavior is such that people should not be allowed to do that. We do allow many thing where people can hurt them self:

  • plastic surgery (the new addiction)
  • bungee jumping
  • sky diving
  • black diamond skying
  • car racing
  • boxing
  • ...and many,many more..

So if we allow all these risks, why is it that we take this position whit anabolic steroids?!

Also weary good point, cigarets and alcohol. We all know that smoking and alcohol cause many disease, such as hard disease, lung cancer...and are responsible for death more than steroids will ever be. So why are alcohol and cigarets legal, and anabolic steroids not?

Anabolic steroids and professional athletes/ cheating or not?

Many professional athletes are using anabolic steroids, such as baseball players, bodybuilders, runners, boxers, mixed martial arts fighter....and many more...

But is this really citing? Let me first get you an example. Tiger Woods, he had an eye surgery, and now hes vision is 20/15, that is better than perfect. In a game that riles on perception, shouldn't super human vision be citing?

Then there are cortisol shouts, used in sports every day. Those are steroids to, and corticosteroids can have worse side effect then anabolic steroids.

Who should use steroids

It s a big difference a kid using steroids and a grown man looking to perform better, at a better level in professional sports.

If you want to rich the top in many professional sports, you have to take anabolic steroids. Many people think that using steroids is a easy way out. The people who use anabolic steroids train whey more harder because they are professionals.

Your moral is your moral, so you have to decide for your self.
