The Steroid Debate.


I know where a lot of people on this site stand when it comes to steroid use, especially after reading the article "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out".

I have trawled around a few databases and journals trying to find some information about effects and side effects of use and basically all I can find is 'your liver and heart will explode', 'your balls will shrink, and possibly permanently' etc etc. I know many of you disagree with this, but without just saying its bullshit, can someone give me some reading material to convince me otherwise.

I feel I respect a physique less having known a person has taken AAS, since so many use it as a way around strict diet and training but having said that, I do agree with use from an elite competitors point of view or someone who's paid their dues with at least 5 years of training under their belt. That's just my opinion and it's probably been done before on this forum but I would like to hear what others have to say about this.
