I guess if there was a major risk of health problems from moderate, or any, use like the average person thinks I’d have never touched the stuff.
I was talking to a buddy that was a BBer and powerlifter in the 80s one day. We talked about prohormones and all the other legal, for now, things. His take on it was that steroids have been around since about 1954 for the first ones and the risks and returns are known by a lot of people. Prohormones come out every 6 months or so and while they may work to a degree the long term risks to something that’s “one molecule off” of the real deal hasn’t really been seen through years of use.
Of course you don’t have to use anything if you don’t want to. I just don’t see it as any huge thing. It’s illegal, so? If it wasn’t for uninformed lawmakers I could go to a sports medicine doc and get a legal and safe cycle like they did in the 70s and 80s. I know a few BBers that used AAS for a number of years and they have no more or less health problems than the next guy that stayed in shape but stayed natural.
You know it’s legal in Mexico, Thailand, Greece, and a few other places. I don’t see reports of droves of huge dead male corpses in the alleys behind gyms in those countries. It might not really be all the big of a deal.
