Who doesn’t want to be ripped? I mean come on gentleman, we all wish we looked like we were on steroids, without taking them. The reason why we don’t do it is because of it’s effects on the body. Although it can severely hurt your health, many individuals still use it. I have been a witness of people using steroids. No, it wasn’t a grown man, it was kids in my HIGH SCHOOL. Unfortunately, teenagers are using steroids at such a young age and it is certainly diminishing their health. From being around people who use it, it can make you go absolutely insane. Then I come to think of it, aren’t people insane just for using?
-kidney problems, liver damage, shrinkage of testicles(in men), baldness, increased risk of prostate cancer, stunted growth(teenagers).
Forget about the looks, worry about your health
Some people may never listen to these effects, just because they want to get jacked. Individuals are forgetting about their own health, and proceeding to do steroids. Yes, looking good at the beach this summer may help you out socially, but is it worth the risk you are putting your body into? I strongly disagree with the usage of steroids. Not only is it cheating, but it can end one’s life. According to Health Research Funding, about 85% of teenagers don’t learn the effects of steroids in school. Have I? No. My high school faded away from the talk of steroids rather than attacking it. I believe, we must discuss this in all high schools before students become sophomores. After a student’s freshman year, they start to follow the older kids. For me and my friends, that’s when we started to develop into the kids that were having more “fun”. We must teach people about this topic so that they don’t get involved in it.
