Steroids – sometimes referred to as ‘roids’ or ‘juice’ is similar to certain hormones in the body. The body produces steroids naturally to support functions such as fighting stress, growth and development but some people use steroid pills, gels, creams, or injections because they think steroids can improve their sports performance or the way they look.
There are a number of different kinds of steroids. The one that’s commonly used is ‘Anabolic Steroids’, which are used to build up muscle. Doctors can prescribe these to treat medical conditions such as treating muscle wasting which is seen in the effects of AIDS.
Anabolic steroids contain testosterone which is primarily a male hormone. Both men and women produce testosterone but, if thrown off course, it can have numerous consequences.
There are many side affects in taking steroids. Both men and women can get acne, have heart attacks, could be at risk of liver cancer/disease, mood swings or even suffer delusions plus many more.
