The use and abuse of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) is on the rise and this is not just among athletes but also in the general population.

“Since many of the side effects of anabolic steroids are manifested in the skin, dermatologists are in a unique and favorable position to detect their use, if they are aware of such clinical signs,” says Michael J. Scott III, D.O., M.D., clinical associate professor of dermatology, Western University of Health Sciences, and co-director of the Seattle Dermatology Center, Seattle.

“Once alerted to this possibility during a dermatological examination, the dermatologist has an excellent opportunity to make users aware of the potential hazards and dangers of taking such drugs.”

Bodybuilders on steroids may suffer from acneThe inappropriate use of anabolic steroids, more specifically anabolic androgen steroid (AAS), could lead to acne because of the stimulation of sebaceous glands.

Anabolic steroids are used by professional sportsmen, especially bodybuilders and strength athletes, for delivering quality performance and staying ahead of the competition.

In short, the report suggested that it is the “inappropriate” use of anabolic steroids that should not be encouraged to avoid coming in proximity with steroid side effects.

Adult steroid users focus more of muscles and not medalsAccording to a review, a majority of non-medical anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) users are not risk-taking teens or cheating athletes. It was suggested by this review that most steroid users in the stage of adolescence do not seem to be influenced by sports performance or athletic competition to take steroids.

The study was conducted by a collaboration of researchers from around the country coordinated by Jason Cohen, Psy.D. candidate and made use of a web-based survey of nearly 2,000 males in the United States.

It was also highlighted that most steroid users are careful in following planned drug regimens in a combination with a healthy diet, exercises, and ancillary drugs.

Annual Jockey Club Round Table tackles model rule on AASThe 2009 Jockey Club Roundtable was recently held at the Gideon Putnam Hotel in Saratoga Springs, New York. It was held last August 23, 2009.

The discussion was geared towards medication reform and the RCI Model Rule on androgenic-anabolic steroids.

The RCI Model Rule on AAS calls for all North American racing authorities to implement the model rule no later than December 31, 2008. Stuart Janney, chairman of The Jockey Club’s Thoroughbred Safety Committee, believes that the rule effectively eliminated the use of anabolic steroids in training and racing of Thoroughbreds.

Short-term benefits of implementing the RCI model rule are pretty much obvious but the most essential part is the long-term benefits. Horses will be in a healthier state in their post-racing days, and owners will be more confident knowing that their horses accomplished something without the use of steroids.

The RCI Model Rule on Androgenic Anabolic Steroids states that no AAS shall be permitted in test samples collected from racing horses except for traces or residues of stanozolol, nandrolone, boldenone and testosterone at concentrations less than the indicated thresholds.

All other AAS are prohibited in racing horses. In cases where AAS was administered to aid recovery from injury, the horse must be placed on the vet’s list.

  Effects of Anabolic steroids to your heart

Effects of Anabolic steroids to your heartAnabolic steroids seem to be a staple when it comes to bodybuilding. Many athletes take anabolic steroids to increase their muscle mass and maximize whatever gains they have obtained. For those who join bodybuilding competitions and strive to win prestigious awards, they are willing to use insane amounts of growth hormones and insulin. Sometimes, users tend to justify their AAS use one way or another.

Numerous studies have already been conducted to establish the ill effects of steroids use especially in long term cases. Some of the short term effects include increased aggressiveness or “roid rage”; acne; faster hair loss; changes in libido; impotence; decrease in sperm production in men; gynecomastia and bloating. These short term effects, aside from the hair loss are usually reversible upon stoppage. It could also lead to stunted growth of bone plates in adolescent users.

Its long term effect to the heart is something to ponder upon before starting on any steroid cycle. Heart muscles tend to grow faster upon AAS use. However, heart vessels could not keep up with this rapid growth and this would eventually cause death to heart muscle tissues. Aside from this, increased water retention could cause hypertension which could lead to heart attacks.

  The importance of creatine

The importance of creatineCreatine’s primary action is to draw water into your muscle bellies. It gives you more leverage when lifting, therefore you are able to lift more weight. Since you retain more water in the body, it gives you a light “bloat” to make you feel bigger.

Most people who use anabolic steroids (AAS) believe that creatine is not needed since a wide variety of steroids also provide you with a water bloat. However, not all steroids provide a bloat. Anavar for one, promotes no water retention. Those who use Anavar should certainly use creatine if their main goal is muscle gain. However, if they wish to avoid the bloat, then Anavar alone is already adequate. Creatine is very useful for bodybuilders in building muscle size and strength. However, there is an argument as to which produces better and significant results. There are two instances where creatine can be used, when on a cycle or during post-cycle therapy. You would definitely build muscle faster if you use creatine together with your AAS supplement than during off cycle.

Creatine is so popular because natural bodybuilders are also encouraged to use it. It will definitely add ten to fifteen pounds of water weight in your muscles. However, the gains are temporary as the water weight will disappear as soon as the product is discontinued.

Anabolic Steroids Have Caused Alarming Increase Of Premature BaldnessAnabolic steroids are known to produce several side effects including excessive sweating, insomnia, heightened aggression and male pattern hair loss. According to a leading hair clinic the premature baldness is becoming an alarming complaint among men who use designer drugs.

Optima Hair Specialists – which supplies advanced hair replacement systems – has seen a 60 percent increase in enquiries from men who have taken anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) and suffered early hair loss.

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) has an adverse effect on hair follicles and is the main culprit behind hair loss. Recent studies have found that steroid drugs can increase the levels of DHT within the body and therefore accelerate hair loss.

  COLLEGE REMAINS CLEAN OF BANNED SUBSTANCES

COLLEGE REMAINS CLEAN OF BANNED SUBSTANCES  Pierce College maintains its stand against androgenic-anabolic steroids (AAS) despite its rampant use in professional sports. They don’t have athletes sporting physiques that reek of steroids. Collegiate sports may be tough and competitive but for those at Pierce cutting corners is not the way to go.

According to the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine AAS are testosterone derived compounds that can have significant effects on the body. It increases muscle mass and improves strength gains. This is due to the properties of testosterone which are responsible for the primary sexual characteristics in males. While AAS can greatly enhance performance and promote faster healing of wounds and muscle injuries, it can have potentially adverse effects to the body.

Ever since the steroid controversy erupted in the MLB, there are concerns that the use of these banned substances are influencing young athletes to try them as well.

To manage the use of steroids in collegiate sports the National Collegiate Athletic Association has imposed a banned substance policy, the same policy which is being used by other universities like UCLA and Guilford College.

But in Pierce College there doesn’t seem to be a need to test the athletes for steroids because the sports officials don’t see it as a problem in the athletic community of this institution.
