RESULTS OF STUDY DONE ON TEENAGERS, ADDICTIVE DRUGS AND STEROIDSThe results of the 2008 Partnership Attitude Tracking Study was revealed recently by the Partnership for a Drug-Free America. This study was meant to show the changes in the youth with regards to their views on drug use. From the report, it seems like the media is doing a good job in telling teens the risk of using various drugs. Parents have also played their roles too in informing their children about the negative effects of methamphetamine and marijuana. The study showed that about 50% of those who had learned about drug abuse at home will not be using these drugs in the future. Unfortunately, the use of anabolic steroids still needs some improvement with regards to discussion at home. Although only a few teens might use anabolic steroids, it is still important that they be made aware of the risks of these drugs.

According to the president and CEO of the Partnership, Steve Pasierb, the youth needs to find out more about anabolic steroids in order to lessen future chances of them abusing these drugs. Parents should approach this matter more aggressively and shouldn’t find it awkward talking to their kids about such issues.

No, he is not an athlete who was found using steroids nor is he a drug dealer who was recently busted by the cops. He is not related to baseball or wrestling or the NFL. Dan Hooton is a father and he could have been just your regular dad except that six years ago, his son died from steroid use. Taylor Hooton was a pitcher for his high school baseball team back when he was 17. Because he wanted to become bigger and stronger, Taylor took anabolic steroids and was found by his mom hanging in his room after seven months of use. The suicide was caused by the side effects of the steroids and Dan Hooton has never forgotten that since. Dan Hooton has been an anti-steroid advocate ever since Taylor died. He established the Taylor Hooton Foundation addressed to informing the youth of the negative effects of these performance enhancing drugs and hopefully, prevent future “Taylors”. Recently, he had contacted Alex Rodriguez in hopes that the baseball superstar, who had lately been in the news for his steroid use, would join them in their advocacy.

Dan Hooton goes around the country telling everyone the different forgotten stories of the youth that had used steroids and the story of his son, Taylor. Dan Hooton doesn’t really care about the professional athletes that take steroids, as a matter of fact. But he cares about the youth and the young ones who look up to their idols and see those using steroids and start thinking that it’s okay when it’s not.

arnolds-anti-steroid-campaignWhile nobody really knows exactly when he used anabolic steroids, everybody knows that then-bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger had used these performance enhancing drugs at one point in his career. This is a fact that he has not hidden although back in those days, steroids were still legal and that is why the actor turned governor has not been reprimanded. Arnold is viewed by many as the man who has the perfect body. He did this by working out, sticking to his diet and, of course, using steroids. The actor claimed that he used the drugs to help him maintain his gain and not to produce the muscle gains per se. At present though, Arnold is starting his advocacy against steroid use.

As ironic and borderline hypocritical as it may seem to some, the reasons this man has are within normal boundaries. Who wouldn’t go to such lengths for the youth, right? It seems like Arnold understands that the youth look up to professional athletes as their idols. It is these athletes responsibility to direct the youth towards a better, healthier path by acting like the proper role models they should be.
