Most Sports-Supplements Contain SteroidsThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has documented that steroid use among high school athletes has more than doubled in the past two decades. This shows that sports-supplements industry is growing beyond control because teenagers can easily purchase these performance-enhancing supplements through local drugstores and online shops. Among the best sellers are weight loss supplements and workout enhancers.

David Epstein and George Dohrmann of Sports Illustrated have reported that a study revealed that 25 percent of the 58 sports supplements tested contained steroids or stimulants that had been banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Since FDA does not need to approve these types of supplements, President Barack Obama has talked about the need to revamp the FDA, and appealed that the agency should regulate the supplement industry.

Some supplement manufacturers offer beneficial products. However, some manufacturers deceive consumers by putting steroids components to the products, and then attack the American market with their enticing marketing pitches.

ADULTS TAKING STEROIDS FOR PHYSICAL SELF IMPROVEMENTNowadays, majority of the adults are heading towards non-medical anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS).The consumption of such steroids is not that they are cheating athletes or risk taking teenagers. Most of them who are taking it are aged 30, well educated and just want physical self-improvement which can motivate them at their workplace too. Use of such steroids can increase muscle mass, strength, and physical attractiveness in males also includes increased confidence, decreased fat, improved mood and attraction of sexual partners.

AAS users are quite different from the other drug abusers. AAS users are much more strategically planned to maximize benefits and minimize harm, unlike the drug abusers who have careless approach towards psychotropic drugs. The people who are undergoing the use of AAS are much cautious in their diet, exercise and lifestyle. They do not have a loss of control over their senses as the abusers of heroin and cocaine.

The vast majority we have seen that AAS users are not athletes and are mostly the regular masses. Thus the survey actually showed that the use of steroids by people must be regulated on a issued public policy so that no contradictory views can be put forward and questioned as stated by Collins.

ONLY FEW HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS USE STEROIDS BASED  ON TESTSSome high schools are confident that their students are safe from the steroid because random testing have yielded very few positive results. There has been a concern of steroid use trickling down to the younger athletes because of the influence of players in pro sports. The issue of Alex Rodriguez and all the other baseball players involved in the use of performance enhancing drugs had the high school officials worried that their students could be into these substances as well. Random drug testing was conducted in both Cumberland Valley High and Boiling Springs High.

The Associated Press reported that in 2006 four states, namely New Jersey, Texas, Illinois, and Florida had performed random drug tests to almost 30,799 students and only 20 were reported positive. This proved that the fears of school authorities are unfounded. That or the testing methods were flawed.

The government said that getting high school students are very expensive and it is not worth doing if there doesn’t seem to be a problem of steroids in high school sports. Per test costs $200 which is quite a lot most especially at this time when the nation is facing a global financial crisis.

What high school authorities could do for now is to continue educating their students on the bad effects of steroids and how it has damaged the careers and lives of athletes.

  Steroids’ Winner Effect

university-steroidsAccording to the university of Cambridge research, testosterone levels (steroids) play significantly in profit-making ventures of individuals particularly those working at the London trading floor. It is reported that when City traders have high morning testosterone levels they make more than average profits for the rest of that day.

Testosterone is a steroid hormone which has great effect on social and sexual behavior of individuals. Countless studies conducted by scientists reported that testosterone increases confidence and penchant for risks. In the case of traders, this translates to a positive expected return.  This would also be the same with the daily use of anabolic steroids like testosterone enanthate (aka buy steroids first then use them to be a better trader).

Professor Joe Herbert, Cambridge Centre for Brain Repair, states: “Market traders, like some other occupations (such as air traffic controllers), work under extreme pressure and the consequences of the rapid decisions they have to make can have profound consequences for them, and for the market as a whole. Our work suggests that these decisions may be biased by emotional and hormonal factors that have not so far been considered in any detail.”

In sports, this steroid benefits many athletes. It has been observed that testosterone levels increase in competitive encounters and exhibits further increase when positive result is experienced by an athlete, i.e. winning. A decrease is noticeable in a losing athlete. A ‘winner effect’ is thus produced; meaning, the athlete experiences further increase in his testosterone level, improving his confidence and risk taking and thus improving his chances of winning yet again.

However, the above study cautioned that if there occurred a chronic elevated testosterone level, it would cause negative backlash. That instead of propelling traders to profitable ventures and decisions via increased risk taking, it can lead to irrational decision-making.

The same can be said with the use of anabolic steroids by athletes. An ideal therapy practice can yield rewarding feedbacks. Malpractice and abuse, in contrast, can create problematic situations such as physiological and psychological issues.
