Steroids Use Prevention. They make muscles overwork, and grow. I watched a documentary on a guy who took steroids so much, that he got infected and had to perform surgery on himself, and his muscles actually EXPLODED! Here are some pictures: Steroid Pictures

Who Use Them?
The National Institutes of Drug Abuse estimates that about 325,000 teenage boys and 175,000 teenage girls use steroids. Also for everyone who have seen Spider Man 1 you might know about the green goblin, well he took steroid type things and look how he turned out.

What do steroids look like, and how are they used?
Anabolic steroids come in the form of tablets, capsules, a solution for injection and a cream or gel to rub into the skin. Weightlifters and bodybuilders who use steroids often take doses that are up to 100 times greater than those used to treat medical conditions. They are taken by a needle, or swallowed. They are usually circular, and are usually white, or yellow.

Inactive Ingredients: Dibasic Calcium Phosphate, D&C Red #28, FD&C Red #40, Lactose, Magnesium Stearate, Starch

How addicting are steroids?
Although people who use anabolic steroids to enhance their physical performance deny that they are addictive, a research study at the University of Southern California showed that hamsters exposed to steroids demonstrated addictive behavior toward them over time.

What are the effects of steroids?
For men - shrinking of the testicles, reduced sperm count, infertility, baldness, development of breasts, and increased risk for cancer.
For women — growth of facial hair, male-pattern baldness, changes in or cessation of the menstrual cycle, and deepened voice.
Adolescents--- Growth halted prematurely through premature skeletal maturation and accelerated puberty changes. This means that adolescents risk remaining short for the remainder of their lives if they take anabolic steroids before the typical adolescent growth spurt. Steroids can also cause acne.

Why do people take steroids?
Why do athletes take steroids? Almost all steroid users are taking steroids because they believe it is the only way to develop muscle and strength. Further more, almost all bodybuilders are taking steroids because they want to get as much strength and size as they possibly can. Steroids are a drug, and like other drugs, people take them to escape reality, and they enjoy what the drug does for them. Steroid users like what the drug has done for their size and strength, and it has taken them away from their original, smaller body. A way to have a greater effect on Steroids is Stacking. Stacking is when you can take two or more types of steroids, mixing oral and injectable forms, believing the different drugs interact to have greater effect.

A Story:
One day at Carrson middle school in the court yard two boys lay on the ground fighting. "You took my chocolate bar!" said Tyler. "No I didn't!” No one really knew if he did or didn't take the chocolate bar, but they didn't care...It was great entertainment during lunch break. "PRINCIPAL!" yelled an innocent bystander. All the children ran but little Jimmy who was losing the fight. At the time he tripped and scabbed his knee. By the time he got up the principal was already there. Jimmy had never won a fight before probably because he was only 4 foot 3 and all the other boys were at least 4 foot 9. Jimmy was waiting in the tiny office until the principal had time to interview him. When she finally got in he was almost calm (unlike usual.) She asked him a few questions but felt bad for him, and his size so let him go free. After school as he was walking home he saw a man injecting something into his arm... but what was it? He walked over and asked the enormous man and he told him it was a "growth needle". Jimmy automatically new it was steroids. "What's your name?" asked the huge man, "Jim" he answered. "You look like you had a rough day" said the stranger, "Yeah, I got beat up at school and got sent to the principals office." Jimmy replied. He knew he shouldn't have been talking to this man but felt he could relate to him because he was not very tall either. Jimmy decided he should go home now, but all night he had bad dreams of getting beat up, he couldn't take it. The next day at school he was innocently drinking from the water fountain like he always does when he felt an arm on his shoulder, he knew it wasn’t good and before he had time to look back he was on the ground. When he looked up from the cold floor he saw, not like he already didn't know it was RED Carlson the school bully and he was holding Jim's lunch bag. RED spat in the pale brown lunch bag and tossed it back to Jim. He walked away laughing with pride while Jimmy lay on the dirty floor. That day while he was walking home he saw that man again. Jimmy looked really sad so the Extremely enormous man asked, "What's wrong?” "A boy at school took my lunch and spat in it." Jimmy replied, feeling much better from talking about it. "Well I didn't want to do this but you really seem desperate," The gigantic man said in a rather deep voice, "do you want to try some steroids, I won't even charge full price. Jimmy thought about it for a second,I really am desperate he thought, but then realized he was actually considering steroids! He knew what they could do to him "NO!" he cried. He would way rather get pushed around than risk being short his WHOLE life! Jimmy ran home but never mentioned it to his parents. At school in the morning he saw RED approaching him. He turned away but then decided to stand up to RED. RED grabbed Jimmy's binder but Jimmy grabbed it back so quick you wouldn't even know what happened. RED roared with rage, no one had ever stood up to him. This story doesn't end like most where the bully: RED gives him respect for standing up to him but instead after school Jimmy gets hurt for doing so. Jimmy made a good choice in not taking steroids. THE END

Are there steroids for animals?
Yes there is. They are mostly for Sport and Show dogs, sometimes for Horses too, anything that needs to run for a purpose has a certain muscle growth.

Avoid Steroids!
There are too many stories about Steroids to write down, even if you copy and paste them. It will take at least 2 hours to get a few of them down. You shouldn't go on Steroids no matter what. If you know someone that does, and you know, tell someone. The person doing Steroids might get mad at you and try to hurt you, but just remember that their muscles are practically fake compared to everyone else's around you or that you know of. Nobody, ever in any situation, should try or get addicted to steroids, especially until they explode! Most drugs and substances effect your personality and mind, or organs but steroids only targets the muscles and the after effects, they can make them just a tiny bit bigger, or they could make them HUGE. Nobody knows the exact effect that comes from Steroids when and if you take them.
