Steroids worth the risk, say players from Dominican RepublicSteroids have reached every part of the world and Dominican Republic was not an exception. Young sportsmen are making use of anabolic steroids to get name, fame, money, and recognition to support themselves and their families despite being aware of the possible side effects of steroid use.

Bernardino Jimenez was a child in San Pedro de Macoris with big dreams for baseball. He got selected to play baseball but was lured by an agent who injected a mixture of Boldenone by saying that it was legal vitamins. Bernardino tested positive for Boldenone and received suspension for 50 games.

This incident once again highlighted the fact that side effects of steroids, amphetamines, or performance enhancing drug are not the influencing factor when it comes to maximizing performance.
