"We live in a very fast world now and, we're always looking for a shortcut. We always want to get rich the fastest way, we want to get famous the fastest way, we want to get strong and be competitive the fastest way," Arnold Schwarzenegger said, on why athletes take steroids.

Steroids in Different Lighting Anabolic androgenic steroids are used as a performance enhancer having positives and negatives, they have serious health side effects and risks, yet it is debated that steroids should be legalized in professional sports. Anabolic androgenic steroids are drugs that increase the body’s ability to build muscle and protein, while promoting the growth of male hormones and characteristics in the body. In the medicine industry there are legitimate purposes for these anabolic steroids, but these steroids have a tendency to be used in illegal activity, mainly in professional athletes. Wrongful uses for steroids have become a popular phenomenon in life today by the professional athletes encouraging them to adolescent minds. The TCADA, or Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, says: “The majority of users taking steroids are young, male athletes, bodybuilders, and endurance sports participants” (Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse 1).

Sports and the spirit of competition have been valued by the human race for centuries. Today, sports are enjoyed globally by millions of people on amateur and professional levels. Unfortunately, the desire to win and exceed in the athletic field has led to the development and use of anabolic steroids. I believe that the use of anabolic steroids should be completely banned in order to ensure the safety of all athletes, to preserve the spirit of honest competition, and to take away the temptation from future athletes to use steroids. In order to understand the arguments presented against and for the use of anabolic steroids, it must be understood what anabolic steroids are.
Why do people think that drugs in sports are bad? Some athletes should just ask themselves one question: “Do we really want to harm our bodies and tarnish the image of sports in order to be successful?” (Scott) “Athletes, footballers and all kinds of athletic people take many different types of drugs.
