The Dangers Of Taking Steroids

The Dangers Of Taking Steroids

You don’t have to take steroids

Many bodybuilders are tempted by the seeming advantages to be gained in taking steroids. Don’t be fooled. The short-term apparent benefits are dramatically out-weighed by the often hideous and generally irreversible consequences. While it’s true that some bodybuilders have resorted to steroids to “get ahead”, the advances made in nutrition and the increased understanding of individual body requirements are successfully overtaking the so-called advantages of drugging. Manufacturers of food supplements have over the years developed a number of products which produce results that not only equal, but surpass the effects induced by steroids and have no damaging side effects.

It has been proved that with proper diet and supplementation accompanied by correct workout routines, optimum performance and results can be obtained without having to take steroids.

The negative effects of steroid use

Even when the drug is administered under careful medical supervision supplemented by a balanced diet and correct training routine some, or all, of these side effects can manifest. It should be noted that many of these are irreversible.
