In urban India, college admissions on the sports quota and body building are driving youngsters to consume dietary supplements and steroids.

About 78 per cent of the adolescents take at least one supplement such as pills, energy drinks, steroids, and high protein stuff.

The ASSOCHAM Social Development Foundation (ASDF) team conducted the survey on the “Ill-effects of energy drinks and other popular dietary supplements on youngsters” in major States and cities during October 2011-January 2012.

Recently, the legislation intended to help curtail steroid use by student-athletes received final legislative approval by the full Assembly by a vote of 74-2 and will now go to the desk of the Governor.

The bill would require all public school coaches and non-public interscholastic sports, dance, and cheerleading coaches to incorporate a gender-specific program designed to reduce the use of steroids, alcohol and other drugs and to promote healthy nutrition and exercise into the team’s training regimen.

“Coaches as well as student athletes need to fully understand the dangers of steroid use and abuse,” said Assemblywoman L. Grace Spencer (D-Essex). “The earlier we can impress this on our student athletes, the better their health – both mental and physical – will be as adults.”

The use of steroids is a relatively quick fix in the world of sports where athletes want to get as much of an edge on the competition as possible.

However, steroid use may soon turn into steroid abuse leading to a wide range of side effects such as liver disease, severe acne, and infertility.

“When my kids were (teenagers), I asked them about steroids,” state Sen. Richard Codey, D-Essex, said. “They said they could just go to the city (New York) or on the Internet. It was easy as pie. Where did they learn this? From kids in school.”

Steroid and illegal drug use was a problem in the NHL not too long ago, according to ex-enforcer Georges Laraque.

Laraque talks about steroid use in the NHL in his new book, “The Story of the NHL’s Unluckiest Tough Guy.”

“Before a game, as I would warm up on the ice, I would always look at the tough guy on the other side,” he said. “If his arms were trembling, if his eyes were bulging, I knew for sure he wasn’t going to feel any of the punches I would give him.”

The Warren County’s Prosecutor’s Office and the Drug Task Force were asked by officials at the Countryside YMCA to investigate hear sayings that someone was trying to push anabolic steroids to high school athletes.

Thirty-three people were indicted on nearly 250 charges involving the multi-state drug trafficking ring after a two-year investigation.

Maj. John Burke, Drug Task Force commander, said “the undercover officer said high school folks were definitely involved, but we were never able to identify who they were or what school they were from.”

The strength and conditioning coach of Manny Pacquiao, Alex Ariza, is not concerned about the accusations of steroid use against the Filipino boxing champion.

Ariza has worked with Pacquiao for his last 8 fights in which Pacquiao held victories over Oscar de la Hoya, Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton, Joshua Clottey, Antonio Margarito, and Shane Mosley.

Manny Pacquiao has blown out everybody he’s fought in his last 8 fights with me. That’s how many different divisions? That’s 135, 140, 147, and 154,” Ariza said in a RingTV.com interview.

Steroid use was commonplace for years in hockey dressing rooms, according to retired NHL enforcer Georges Laraque in a new book.

“I have to say here that tough guys weren’t the only players using steroids in the NHL,” Laraque wrote. “It was true that quite a lot of them did use this drug, but other, more talented players did too.

In his new book “The Story of the NHL’s Unlikeliest Tough Guy,” Laraque wrote, “Most of us knew who they were, but not a single player, not even me, would ever think of raising his hand to break the silence and accuse a fellow player.”

A lot of people are wondering just how widespread steroid use is becoming after a massive steroid sweep this week in southwest Ohio.

High school athletes are now in the spotlight in the wake of the biggest steroid bust in the area in recent history.

“What we just do with them is show them that you don’t have to dig very deep to see some of the negative side effects on the inside and outside of your body to see why you shouldn’t use steroids,” a local high school football coach Andy Aracri said.

Federal prosecutors still care deeply about steroids, and lying about their use to Congress as the aborted Roger Clemens trial shows.

The shredded reputation of Clemens remains in limbo after last week’s mistrial in the perjury case against one of baseball’s all-time greats.

“I think there’s certainly some performance-enhancing drug fatigue,” said Charles Yesalis, a professor at Penn State and longtime outspoken critic of PED abuse.
