A few months back, i walked into my friend’s kitchen and noticed three to four containers of muscle/cellulite building supplements. I thought, “My my! What degrees of risk people take to look good!” Most people are aware of the steroid contents of these supplements but don’t really know the ill effects they cause on their physiological and psychological self.
Hence, I’m taking this initiative to write a little bit about the dangers of Anabolic Androgenic Steroids(AAS) and their abuse. I did a small research on the same.
The CSA defined anabolic drugs as any substance that is chemically or pharmacologically related to testosterone.
A lot of men (and women too) who want to look like their favorite star consume AAS in various forms but are least aware that this so called muscle building magic solution causes weakening of tendon strength. The risk of tendon rupture increases. Winstrol weakening joints has been a fact amongst the gym folk. The production of testosterone is controlled by gonadotropins released by the pituitary glands in the brain. AAS throws this delicate system out of balance causing decreased mental and physical activity, impotence and bone loss. In women, it causes complications in pregnancy, child birth and could lead to miscarriages too. Apart from this, it also disrupts the lipoprotein and cholesterol levels leading to cardiovascular complications. For those teenagers who don’t really care about the above issues, steroid abuse leads to acne and excess body hair and sometimes hair loss too. I’m sure you don’t want that!
Administration of Anabolic steroids also could result in psychological disturbances. Increased aggressiveness may be beneficial for athletic training, but also leads to over violence outside the gym or the track. There are reports of violent, criminal behavior in individuals taking AAS. Other side effects of AS are euphoria, confusion, sleeping disorders, pathological anxiety, paranoia and hallucinations.
Apart from the potential health risks, abuse of steroids can of course take you to prison.
I hope this little information was useful to you all and you stay healthy and steroid free! Please feel free to share more info if u have any.
Do check out the video documentary that I found interesting and informative.
Stay away from drugs!
