Transcript of Steroids
Lance is living a very healthy live but his Tour de France titles have been taken from him. “In 1999, Schwarzenegger sued Dr. Willi Heepe, a German doctor who publicly predicted his early death on the basis of a link between his steroid use and his later heart problems.” It was noted that the doctor had never examined Aronld. Schwarzenegger collected a $10,000 libel judgment against the doctor in a German court. Aronld is living a very health life as of this paper. “Research has shown that the inappropriate use of anabolic steroids can have catastrophic medical, psychiatric and behavioral consequences,” wrote Dr. Nora D. Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. It is considered a fact that high doses of anabolic steroids used by people is linked to heart problems, negative sexual side effects, aggressive behavior, depression, and suicide. Terry Goodland in Flex Magazine stated that “without regular testing by a doctor, you will have no idea how your body is dealing with the drugs until it’s too late.” Estrogens (These are female sex hormones and they maintain the female reproductive system) Corticosteroids (These are hormones which help to regulate inflammation in the body, “Cortisone”), My father once suffered from a back injury which the doctor had injected cortisone directly into the area of the pain. It was the best thing to help him heal. The cortisone injection worked within two days and he could walk and sit down again without pain. If he didn’t take the cortisone inject it would have taken weeks for his body to heal naturally. Scandal erupted at the 1988 Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea, when Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson tested positive for banned substances. It was thought that he used steroids to beat Carl Lewis in the 100-meter dash In 1975 the International Olympic Committee banned use of all anabolic steroids and began a testing policy to keep steroid users out of the Olympics. In 1991, health concerns brewed over the abuse of steroids. As a result, steroids were placed on the list of Schedule III drugs under the U.S. Controlled Substances Act. Since then it has been illegal to possess or sell prescription steroids in the United States.(from Ed. Barbara C. Bigelow) anabolic steroids normally get injected in the spine. References:
