Teen Steroid Use Rising - AnabolicMinds.com
    • Teen Steroid Use Rising


      By Shawn Radcliffe Men's Fitness

      In a quest to “bulk up” faster, more teenagers are turning to illegal steroids, and putting their health in danger, according to a new report published in the journal Pediatrics.

      A survey of over 2,700 high school students in the Minneapolis area found that 5.9 percent of boys and 4.6 percent of girls had used anabolic steroids to help them build muscle. This is part of a troubling trend, say researchers, driven in part by the media and the students’ peers—especially older adolescents. In 2009, steroid use among teens ranged from 1.3 to 2.2 percent, according to the Centers for Disease

      Control and Prevention.

      So how you can you help a younger brother or friend realize that turning to steroids is a terrible move?

      Educate them about the serious side effects. People of any age who use steroids put themselves at increased risk of aggressiveness, violent mood swings (a.k.a. "roid rage"), paranoid jealousy, delusions, and—when sharing needles for injections—even HIV/AIDS or hepatitis infection.

      Plus, steroids can lead to some physical changes that, ironically enough, are the opposite of ideal: testicle shrinkage, baldness, stunted growth (specifically in adolescents), and the development of man-breasts. If that image won't wipe the fast-tracked, bulked-up vision of a steroid-aided physique from his brain...we don't know what will.

        Ummm...lets see...

        Mood swings- negative I had more mood swings when I was going through puberty

        Delusions- um no I'm not on acid

        Roid rage- never once got so mad I couldn't control myself..again was worse as a teen in puberty not on aas

        Paranoid jealousy- most males are at least a bit jealous in my opinion steroids give you more confidence

        Balls shrinkage - never heard a girl say oh man his balls were so huge it was great...plus smaller balls make your penis look bigger lol

        Man boobs- without a proper anti E well of course don't be a dumb ass

        Aids/HIV- lmfao!!! Yeah I always pin my ass then pin a few of my aids infected bros then reuse the needle the next pin yup all the time GTFO

        So mr. Article as I agree 22-23 is the lowest age for steroid use stop hyping up the bad aspects of them so much

        If your a teen reading this think of it this way...you have 3 special moves to use in a game would you use them on level 1 or 2 hell no why use cheats for the easy levels...what I'm saying is enjoy natty gains and natty teen test and noob gains it's the best thing ever

        Explain facts about what roids will do to a teens HPTA. Explain that they are basically on a low dose of tear because they are teens. Explain the BENEFITS of waiting till level two in the game as said above. Like the rest, I am sick of reading this made up **** about Roid rage and delusions. Honesty would go so much further with the teens than BS. Besides we are talking about 5-6% of them trying roids. That's hardly an epidemic. There will be 5-6% of teens that inevitably do some seriously retarded crap at some point anyways regardless of what you tell them.

        ^^ More or less agree with you except with the balls comment. You've only got two, and if you are letting them atrophy as a teen then you are cheating a future middle-aged man. It may seem like the remote future...but the day will come. Make those puppies last cause sex gets way more interesting and fun after several decades of experience, so don't miss it.

        Ok so when I was in highschool over 15 years ago we took questionnaires that were anonymous and it asked stuff like have you used heroin and meth and roids, myself and everyone I know marked yes just to be funny so these stats are more than likely way off. I didn't use AAS til I was over 30 myself.

        Agreed. This is exactly what came to my mind. I don't recall that site going into details about support supps and such.

        are they actually using steroids or are they insanely uneducated and think that creatine and protein are steroids, what does the survey actual ask? performance enhancing supplements? steroids? vitamins?

        They get a bad wrap because people abuse them or take them while their to young. Then the news gets a hold of a story "teen on steroids!!!!!" And it explodes with negativity. If people used them correctly, at the right age with the right knowledge steroids would never never hit the news or have a bad reputation .
