Growing relationship between young men and anabolic steroidsAccording to a recently concluded survey by a drug charity, more and more young men are increasingly turning to anabolic steroids for enhancing performance, improving looks, and boosting their self-confidence.

As per DrugScope, the traditionally used steroids admired by sportsmen are now becoming more popular among students, young professionals, and even building site workers who are mostly in the age group of 16-25 years.

Martin Barnes, Chief Executive of DrugScope, said that this increase in the number of young men abusing steroids is extremely worrying and seems to be in response to the growing obsession with the ideal body image.

Drug users are very much aware of their stuffAccording to recent findings published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, drug users are very much informed about side effects and health complications associated with the drugs they use. It was remarked that these users perceive alcohol and tobacco to be two of the most dangerous substances, a fact that was highlighted by a survey by UCL (University College London) and Imperial College London researchers.

The twenty substances surveyed in the 2009 study were alcohol, alkyl nitrates, amphetamines, anabolic steroids, cocaine, crack, ecstasy, GHB, heroin, LSD, ketamine, khat, 4-MTA, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, buprenorphine, cannabis, methylphenidate, solvents, street methadone and tobacco.

Use of Steroids among teen girlsAccording to results of a national survey published in the June issue of Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, the use of steroids among teen girls is just not limited to those actively involved in competitive athletics. It was also revealed that the usage of steroids is often associated with cluster of other health-harming behaviors, including diet pills and smoking.

Diane L. Elliot, M.D., of the Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, and colleagues made assessments for use of anabolic steroid among teen girls and raised questions about use of ecstasy, steroids, and other behaviors.

From News-Medical.Net:

“Adolescent girls reporting anabolic steroid use had significantly more other health-harming behaviors,” they continue. “They were much more likely to use other unhealthy substances, including past 30-day use of cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana and cocaine.” Young female steroid users were also more likely to:

  • have had sexual intercourse before age 13
  • have been pregnant
  • drink and drive or have ridden with a drinking driver
  • carry a weapon
  • have been in a fight on school property in the past year
  • have feelings of sadness or hopelessness almost every
  • day for at least two weeks
  • have attempted suicide

More than two-thirds of the teen girls surveyed reported trying to change their weight. However, those who used steroids were more likely to turn to extreme weight-loss techniques, including vomiting and laxative use. “Anabolic steroids are body-shaping agents and cause a loss in body fat and an increase in lean tissue; therefore, their association with unhealthy weight loss practices was not surprising,” the authors write.

It was also found that high-risk adolescent girls received less attention than adolescent boys, which somehow suggest that their actions were found to be less socially and more personally destructive.

australia, steroidsSix individuals, including a minor, were arrested in a series of raids conducted by the Central Metropolitan Region Enforcement Squad (RES) members. Authorities were able to seize thousands of ecstasy tablets, as well as “a quantity of steroids and large amounts of cash”.

According to the press release posted at the New South Wales Police website, the initial arrest took place in a city hotel room where three men – aged 20, 21, and 24 – allegedly conducted a drug deal involving 30,000 ecstasy tablets. Said drug bulk has an estimated street value of $1.5 million.

Following this arrest, a series of raids were carried out across Sydney’s west and south-west areas, including Parramatta, Lidcombe, Merrylands, Campsie, Denistone and Rydalmere. Three other persons were arrested, aged 20, 26, and a 17-year-old youth.

Additional seizure of illicit drugs and cash resulted from these subsequent raids.

All six people have been charged overnight with supply large commercial quantity of a prohibited drug and ongoing supply of a prohibited drug.

According to the police, all six men have links with an organized Asian crime network involved in drug trafficking and operating in the Sydney Central Business District (CBD).

The arrests were the result of the two-month investigation of the Central Metropolitan RES.

“Our investigation revealed this syndicate was capable of sourcing and supplying very large amounts of prohibited drugs on a regular basis,” said Detective Inspector Gavin Wood, head of the RES group.

“We have intercepted thousands of pills that were ultimately destined for the streets of Sydney.”

  Steroid use by teenages

It seems that steroid use in schools is overblown and overrated.  If anything, it’s something that’s a going away factor, with steroid use on the decline.  In fact, overall, since 1981 (steroids were legal in 81), we have seen the decline of steroid use in teenagers yearly.  It is clear that recreational drugs are the poison in the schools and must be dealt with.  Everything from cocaine to ecstasy to alcohol is killing the kids, NOT steroids.  Rick Collins reports:

According to the latest 2007 University of Michigan Monitoring the Future studies of 8th, 10th and 12th graders, the percentage of 8th graders who reported using steroids at least once in their lives went from a high of 3.0% in 2000 down to 1.5% in 2007. Among 10th graders, the figure went from 3.5% in 2000 down to 3.0% in 2003, then down to 2.0% in 2005, and now down to 1.8% in 2007. Among 12th graders, the decrease was from a high of 4.0% in 2002, to 3.5% in 2003, to 3.4% in 2004, and now dramatically down to 2.2% in 2007. By comparison, more than three times as many 12th graders have used ecstasy (6.5%), over three times as many have used cocaine (7.8%) or hallucinogens (8.4%), over five times as many have used amphetamines (11.4%), and a whopping 55.1% have been drunk. Nearly 18% of our 8th graders have abused alcohol to intoxication, and more than twice as many 8th graders have used cocaine (3.1%) over steroids. These statistics are not intended to minimize in any way the societal problem presented by teen steroid abuse. However, it’s dishonest for self-serving professional alarmists and sensationalistic journalists to create unfounded hysteria.
