Clint Faught with the Taylor Hooton Foundation — a nonprofit group dedicated to educating students about the dangers of steroids, recently said body image is the biggest reason why young women are using anabolic steroids.

Faught was in Abilene speaking to a group of student athletes, coaches, and athletic administrators at McMurry University.

“Body image, especially among young women, is the leading cause of steroid use,” Faught said. “They do it to slim down or add lean muscle, to get into ‘bikini shape.’ Guys, too, are turning to steroids to get that six-pack ab look, just to look good on the beach.”
