A legislation meant for curtailing steroid use by student-athletes received final legislative approval by the full Assembly by a vote of 74-2 and is on the verge on being passed after being sent to the Governor.

Under the bill, all public school coaches and non-public interscholastic sports, dance, and cheerleading coaches would be required to incorporate a gender-specific program designed for limiting the use of steroids, alcohol and other drugs and to promote healthy nutrition and exercise into the training regimen of the team. The bill (S-834/A-2454) would codify recommendations from the 2005 Governor’s Task Force on Steroid Use and Prevention to establish measures for deterring the use of anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing supplements in middle school and high school athletes.

“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.”

Under the bill, the state Department of Education (DOE) and the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) would work jointly for developing and implementing a program of random steroid testing of student athletes who qualify to compete in championship tournaments sanctioned by the NJSIAA.

  Adverse Results of Anabolic Steroids

If you have always been left clueless on how some athletes have been so successful while some even fail to live up to the standards, one of the reasons behind this big line of difference may be use of anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. Sportsmen, across the globe, use steroids to run quicker, hit harder, and build solid muscles quicker to stand above the competition. The fact that steroids can be easily purchased on the internet, with or without a medical prescription, indicates the surge in demand and popularity of these efficiency improving medications in the recent years.

However, the use of steroids may do more damage than good if these efficiency improving medications are misused or of a low grade. The abuse of steroids may cause steroid side effects such as bloating that may be recognized by face or neck inflammation. Anabolic steroid abuse may even cause wellness issues such as cardiac arrest, stroke, and heart diseases. This is primarily because indiscriminate use of steroids has a bad effect on the blood pressure and cholesterol levels of the body and frequent abuse of steroids may result in blocking of bloodstream and development of heart illnesses.

Moreover, steroid abuse may cause erectile dysfunction, inability to conceive, hair loss in females, gynecomastia (development of female breasts in men), deepening of voice in females, and development of facial beard in females. Anabolic steroid abuse may even cause wellness issues such as impotency, depression, anxiety, hallucination, unmanageable feelings, sleep disruptions, slower development, greasy epidermis, acne, hair loss, and sleeplessness. In addition to these side effects of steroids, the use of steroids indiscriminately may even cause addiction, kidney damage, swelling, or pain/difficulty when urinating. Furthermore, abuse of steroids may even seriously affect the normal production of hormones and may cause changes in epidermis structure, sexual interest changes, and enlargement of the clitoris and may even damage the fetus, if used by expecting women.

However, all these side effects of steroids can be reduced or removed by using steroids in a clinically guided and regulated way that is the best way to use steroids.

Sportsmen, across the world, have been finding one reason or another to remain close to legal anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs these days. This is not just because these efficiency improving medications help them stand above the competition and deliver consistent results over a time period, but also because clinically advised use of genuine steroids does not lead to adverse reactions while helping sportsmen secure or retain their place in professional sport teams. However, the use of steroids may cause to adverse reactions in the lack of qualified information or when the purchased steroids are of low quality.

Most steroid users fail to realize that there is a very little difference of difference between use of steroids and abuse of steroids. While genuine use of steroids is always clinically advised and regulated, illegal use of steroids is all about using these efficiency improving medications in the lack of or contravention to medical advice and regulations.

When abused, anabolic steroids may cause adverse reactions that may be mild or severe or reversible or permanent in nature. The misuse of steroid drugs by men can cause complications such as gynecomastia, fluid retention, and enlargement of prostate. The abuse of steroids may even cause cataract, Cushing’s syndrome, muscle wasting, brittle bones, over-increased aggression, delays in injury healing, premature baldness, appetite changes, menstrual problems, and sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV/AIDS, if steroids are taken through shared needles.

Moreover, abuse of these drugs may lead to steroid side effects such as hypertension and kidney damage or liver damage in some cases. Indiscriminate or long lasting use of steroid drugs may even result in production of unstable toxic items in our bodies, which may injure the liver or restrict its ability of removing steroids from the bloodstream and changing them into items that could be readily removed through urine or the bile.

UK government officials will be helpless if athletes bring anabolic steroids into the country for personal use while competing in the London 2012 Olympic Games.

This is because the use of steroids is not a criminal offence in the country and only trafficking of steroids constitutes a criminal offence.

“We are making a clear pitch for tougher sentences and urging the need for a universal sentencing policy,” said Hugh Robertson, the Olympics minister. “We would like to see at least four years, if not rather longer than that.”

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.

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.”

Barry Larkin, still glowing over his election to the Hall of Fame, was asked about next year’s sure-to-be-controversial vote: the first appearances of Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Sammy Sosa on the Cooperstown ballot.

“All I know is playing and competing against some of these guys, they’re the best — period,” he said.

“I’m not going to vote for any of the people that are linked to steroids. I could change down the road, but that’s the real strong feeling I have now,” said Hal Bodley of MLB.com, the former lead baseball writer for USA Today.
