    it's even worse, because the teenager committed suicide, so the headline reads, "Teen Suicide from Steroid use?"

    WTF

    here's a link:

    PS there is LOADS of bull**** in that article.

    I am a scientist.

    you can't prove the steroids caused the suicide. He could have had schizophrenia beforehand, for example.

    when it comes to this, there are two types of people :

    1. people that are willing & able to committ suicide
    2. people that won't committ suicide

    you're one or the other, don't blame any media/product/whatever on someones death.
    suicide is synonymous with stupidity.

    They did the exact same thing with EverQuest !!!
    Sensationalism + mass media + victim society = lack of accountability for self actions and the ability to blame others for the consequences.

    ... LOL, and the teen was from Plano, TX (just up the street from me, I live in Dallas). Plano has issues anyway, they had that whole heroin problem a few years ago.

    I just watched 60 minutes, and I believe they are ignorant and they do not do much research on steroids. They just want something to blame it on. I feel sorry for the kid that he thought it had to come down to killing himself, but i bet there were many other factors that contributed to his suicide. All this bad publicity will make laws even stiffer on roids. Why can't people put whatever they want into their body. We have bigger problems to focus on other then what people want to do to therselves. If steroids were used and not abused they are not that dangerous. Things are just going to get worse.

    His parents taking his truck is what put him over the edge. Maybe 60 minutes should investigate the dangers of being grounded next?

    Yeah they showed the vial and for an insult to injury it was Nandrolone. No PCT after deca is a no, no..

    To make things even worse for this show, they interviewed some lady, I forget who she was now, but they asked her if the steroids alone caused his depression, she said "without a doubt" --what a bitch...

    My parents have caught on to me using PH's, and my fathers a doc so I sometimes come to him and ask him about AAS related things/endocrine things. Anyways, he doesn't like me doing them, but he knows that I make up my own mind and just wants me to be safe. SO, my mother called me up as soon as it came on and was trying to lecture me about AAS, and saying that I should quit, and to watch the show. Gotta love moms, right? Then I feel all guilty cuz it makes her uneasy.

    LOL, yeah you're lucky. I'm not going to tell them when I start real AAS, since PH/PS's are basically the same thing subject wise, if I have a concern, etc. It will be easy to manipulate..

    I wonder if his shrink told him that Lexapro (and other SSRIs) frequently cause inability to orgasm and sometimes impotence. My doctor neglected to mention this when he prescribed paxil for me.

    The kid may have experienced these side effects (in addition to the PC effects with no PCT) and thought he was permanently damaged.

    If roids caused suicide there would be countless suicides each year, but the public seems to have lost common sense. This kid is an example of Darwinism at its best.

    what annoys me is even smart people who I know don't understand. I tell them look steroids are just medication and they are given to older people as well to help reverse aging. Any drug can be abused, ****ing asprin could be abused (and is) and it is horrible for your liver. Yet, steroids do all these bad things, like everyone uses Lyle Alzedo for example of what steroids do to someone. I tell them look the guy was on his entire football career of over a decade, when you do that **** is gonna happen. It's no different then taking asprin every day of the week, you will end up screwed up either way. The point is any drug can be abused no matter how strong or weak it is and if steroids are so bad then why are we giving them to older people with obviously weaker immune systems. I ****ing hate turning on the news or listening to my friends villify steroids like it's smoking crack or some ****. It's like steroids are so bad, but you don't hear many steroid-related deaths now, do you? More people die from ****ing cigarettes, or inhaling pollutants or some other very asanine way of dying in a year then will die from steroid use in a decade. Obesity kills tons of people as well. Whatever people will continue to believe what the Corporate news media stations tell them and not do their own research. blah blah i'm done ranting.

    Its obvious from the article the kid was under huge amount of pressure to succeed. He was prabably unstable before he used steroids..........and i take it he didnt do anything for PCT. How fricken dumb is this. So the kid had lots of pressure, things werent going his way, he didnt have PCT, hes a teenager which makes him already immature and emotional. And he was prescribed antidepressants. These people are dumb...........i could have told them he was going to kill himself.
