Abstract: Since the beginning of sports competition, athletes have always looked for some kind of an edge over their competitors. They will do whatever it takes to be one of the elite and that includes injecting supplements into their bodies to make them bigger, stronger, and faster. Steroid use is probably one of the most common drug misuses in sports competition. Athletes found that with anabolic steroids one could become a better athlete twice as fast. Not until 1975 was the drug first banned from Olympic competition because of the health risks it produced.
The biggest problem for those who dream to have a beautiful body today, as many people know, is the consumption of steroids. It is amazing what people and athletes will do to enhance their performance, strength and muscle size by taking steroids. Whether right or wrong people who use steroids to become the fastest and strongest will prevail, so who would turn down a substance that could turn them into a super athlete and a muscle man? The purpose of this essay is to inform the reader on the popular anabolic steroids that most people use and the positive and negative side effects of steroid use on its users and finally my personal point of view. To begin with, there are two main types of steroids: adrenal steroids and sex steroids.
Anabolic steroids are a synthetic steroid hormone that resembles testosterone in promoting the growth of muscle. Steroids affect athletes for improving their performance on the sport they are completing, but it also affects young youth. These days young youth is using steroids to either improve their physical appearance and/or to improve the sport they are enrolled in. I personally think that youth gets the idea of uses steroids from the athletes that they watch on t.v, and decides to use them for that reason. Steroids increase lean body mass and improve muscular strength.
“[Thirty percent] of college and professional athletes have used or currently use steroids, as do 10-20% of high school athletes” (“Anabolic Steroids”). These numbers are alarming, but there are two main reasons why this is occuring: people tend to belief steroids will improve their appearances, and athletes believe their athletic abilities will increase. However, most are not aware of the effects steroid use has on the body. Steroid use has dramatic effects on the user’s body and mind in many different ways. Steroids are hormone replacements that affect the user’s body in various forms.
The Problem of the Use Steroids are classified as anabolic steroids, which increase muscle growth and are meant to reduce the weight of the body. Anabolic steroids are also often used among athletes to increase their muscle growth. However, many people who inject steroids irregularly, induces side effects such as, kidney failure, liver damage, heart attacks, and undersized growth. Athletes inject themselves with the performance enhancing drug to improve their performances. The legal use of prescription steroids can be use to treat different conditions that cause a loss of lean muscle mass.
Athletes, whether they are young or old, professional or amateur, are always looking to gain an advantage over their opponents. The desire for an "edge" exists in all sports, at all levels of play. Successful athletes rely on practice and hard work to increase their skill, speed, power, and ability. However, some athletes resort to drugs to improve their performance on the field or the court. You may have heard them called 'roids, juice, hype, or pump.’ Anabolic steroids are powerful drugs that many people take in high doses to boost athletic performance.
