Not having my facts entirely straight or entirely accurate, i will relate the best i can.
I know several powerlifters who began using dianabol in the early 60’s, one of whom claims to have met mr ziegler personally, although their dosage was low in the 60s, at most 30mg per day, as they competed through the 70s into the early 80’s this dosage went from as high as 100mg per day to as low as 20mg per day when using other substances such as anadrol, winstrol and a variety of injectable gear.
Now bare in mind that these guys did not come off dianabol for nearly 25 years, it was a staple of their routine which only money dictated if they had an off period.
They are all still fit and healthy men, still training - hard, allbeit all on trt now.
Now, i know of only 3 alcoholics, one died of liver and kidney failure after 20 years of heavy drinking, one is still alive - just but it is easy to see that jaundice is well underway to finishing him off, and the other has been drinking heavy daily for 40 years and shows no curent sign of ill health - although he has had a stroke around 10 years ago, but as i am aware no liver damage. Then of course there is the George Best story.
Point is, i think the toxicity of oral steroids is overstated tremendously, i am currently running a 2 on 2 off protocol which combines a total of 100mg daily of 17aa gear.
I am not denying the health implications here, caution should always be applied, we are not born with dianabol in our body (unfortunately) so putting too much in cannot be a good thing long term.
