According to a survey by industry body Assocham, about 78 percent of adolescents in urban areas of India consume at least one dietary supplement such as pills, energy drinks, steroids, and high-protein powders.

“The statistics are shocking, as many children are becoming overly involved and obsessed by a wide variety of substances that promise to boost energy, appearance, performance, immunity and overall health, even if it shortened their lives,” it said in a statement.

“In addition to that, cash incentives and college admissions through sports quota lure them into taking wrong steps,” Assocham said.

Education program by Irish Rugby Football UnionThe Irish Rugby Football Union is developing an education program throughout the underage system in schools so that the concerns about the use of dangerous supplements like creatine amongst rugby-playing school boys can be reduced to a significant extent.

Ruth Wood-Martin, the IRFU Performance Nutritionist said, “We actively discourage the use of supplements in underage players and we are developing a programme that will focus on how eating and drinking well is the most effective nutrition strategy to support hard training and quick recovery.”

“These protein and body building shakes they are bulking up on, no ones knows where they are coming from. Some say the ingredients are thrown into a cement mixer to mix them up.”

It was noted that this image may prompt them to use hormones and dietary supplements to improve their physique.

The survey also reported that the adolescent supplement users appear to be deeply influenced by the media.

It was noted that some of the most popular products for improving body image were creatine, amino acids, the amino-acid metabolite HMB, the hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), growth hormone, and anabolic steroids.
