    • 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.

        From what I remember, there were a few of guys in my area that roid raged starting at around 15-16, and then by freshman year of college (everyone was 17-19) it seemed like a few more. Most did not tho. Havent really seen any roid raging girls besides the freaks at random gyms.
