    A "GOOD" Steroid Article


    Can you believe this........finally the truth be spoken in the press, the Boston Globe no less, from Medical Doctors and College Professors (one from Harvard Medical School). This needs to be sent a million times to Senator John McCain and all those other Hypocritical ******* Politicians and forwarded to Rick Collins website for use as well and for informational purposes.

    Wow that is a good read. If only that couldve gone in Newsweek a couple of weeks ago instead of that piece on Kids and Steroids. That piece was some straight up yellow journalism.

    I saw that crap in the news stand when I was grocery shopping. Grrrr...it quickly pissed me off. And, of course, I made some out loud comments about it to my wife that the others in line could hear before I realized it.

    That's a great article. It's actually refreshing to see something more positive said and with a little intelligence behind it in the press.

    Nice find indeed. It basically tells us what we already know it's ashame a news team doesn't broadcast this on the 11oclock news.

    People love negativity, they love scandal. They don't want to hear this ****. They don't want to hear that their wrong either.

    Preach it baby

    "You will occasionally see some increase in aggression," Yesalis says, but "it will probably be very mild. ... You take a state college on any given weekend and you will see as many cases of alcohol-induced rage as you will see in a hundred years with anabolic steroids."

    Awsome. There is an article in Time magazine on the last page of the dec 20nd issue , its the one with the "science of sleep" on the cover. Anyway the article is pretty good too, and although it uses no scientific evidence, it still comes out somewhat pro steroid use. It talks about how our nation "cheats" at everything else, including the use of ritilin and adderal, as well as breast implants, hair replacement, and other things that make steroids look good morally. You have to subscribe to view the complete article, but here's a link to the intro of it: http://www.time.com/time/archive/pre...009736,00.html

    awesome find bro - people always want something/one to blame and steroids seem to be the scape goat of the moment. It's good to see someone showing the other side of steroid use.

    You ain't kidding. That dude was not the poster boy for steroids, more like the poster boy for video games and cheetos.

    i thought the same thing myself, i bet the editors, or the dirctors made the boy do a short cycle of anadrol to make even look even puffier, so they can frame there story even better

    But Charles Yesalis, a steroids expert and epidemiologist at Penn State, remains slightly dubious of the causality. "You will occasionally see some increase in aggression," Yesalis says, but "it will probably be very mild. ... You take a state college on any given weekend and you will see as many cases of alcohol-induced rage as you will see in a hundred years with anabolic steroids."
    Exactly...
    I think the general 'misunderstanding' about steroids is - most (99%) of all people think any use of steroids is unsafe. People assume use is abuse.

    Angry


    I said it before and I will say it again. Its all about how you play the game. Beleive it or not, too much of anything is bad for you, but in moderation it can be good for you. You can even drink too much water. As idiotic as it sounds, its true.


    Here is a cool link. http://chemistry.about.com/cs/5/f/blwaterintox.htm

    It is hard to do, but possible. Just like too much whisky can give you alchohol poisoning. Or too much Zinc and do something. Too much of anythingcan be bad. Even money.... If you use smart and dont over do it, you should have no problems. Its the guys that think becuase they saw good results from 300mg of Test that 750mg would be awsome, then he ends up with some health problem and cant figure out why!!! You have to play this game with patience. I dont beleive you should run over 20mg dbol your first time, or 200mg test, or 200mg Deca. This is my opinion and there is alos the factor that everyone is different. Bob might be able to take 600-700mg a week for 10 weeks and be fine becuase of a built up tolerance, but Joe might only be on his second or third cycle and only need 300-400mg. Personally, from now on I am sticking with one cycle a year. I too made the mistake of thinking. 250mg of sustanon is good, but what will 500mg do? Then I said, 500mg is awsome...wonder what 750 will do. Then, after about 6 weeks of 750mg I started noticing sides...... Shortness of breath, headaches, insomnia, high blood pressure, sweats, upset stomache. Anger was never really an issue, but after 3 weeks off my manly chisled pecs became semi-flabby man boobs and my tightness went away, my strength slowly diminished as the esters finished their jobs and I became depressed. Its funny, because this never happened at around 250-500mg a week. I kept good gains, I kept strength and I stayed tight. I just over did it for my body. Now, I will have to stay off for another 8-12 months and loose the body fat and the titties and keep on working. My next cycle is going to be lower dosed.

    I bet if you took too much Viagra you would be in a world of hurt. Or even too much Creatine or N02 could be harmfull or even deadly. Something these government cheese heads need to think about.

    I got a question for them.....

    So its ok to push alchohol, cigarettes, pipes, chew, and dip. All of which have NO positive health benefits and all NEGATIVE health effects. Sell them to 18 year old kids who will soon start to develope some of the deadliest diseases today. Heart disease, lung cancer, colon cancer, throat, tounge and lip cancer amongst many others. And its ok....its ok for people to loose their sons and daughters and husbands and wifes to selfish, retards who drive drunk...but its all legal RIGHT???

    But you take one average guy. Who works day in and day out at the gym to get in shape and look his best. And when he has done all he can naturally, he turns to Steroids. And he is the one thats persecuted. He is the one that has to hide his "drugs" from people. When they use the same compounds to health benefits. Do you see a Dr. Prescribing 12 shots of 151 and a pack of smokes a day...**** NO!!!! CAuse They KiLL YOU!!!!


    So tell me, if a drunk driver broad sides a guy who was on his way to the gym and he had 3 bottles of Test and some Dbol adn they both live....who is in jail longer?


    You can say what you want Mr. Government, but you are the reason over 1200 people a day die from alchohol and tobacco related illness. Its your fault my Grampa died of lung cancer....not his. BEcuase you said it was ok...you said have that smoke..its refreshing.

    I dont drink, I dont smoke and I dont dip or chew. But everyday I have to smell and inhale those toxic fumes at restaurants and lounges. The only toxic fumes coming out of me is from my ass. Methane gas that is not harmfull or toxic. From all the eggs adn protein I eat. You are killing people who dont even smoke!!! MURDERERS

    But here I sit. Drawing my liquid muscle and swabbing my delt. Eatting as much as I can. TAking supps to stay healthy and keeping to myself. I lift and you want to put ME in Jail.......

    Talking Hmmm...


    I still have a problem with children (meaning those of us still developing physically) using gear of any sort. Also I still like to believe that my favorite athlete is a physically gifted person who can perform feats that are above the rest of us. I'm sorry bro's but Hank, Mayes, Magic, Jordan, Staubach and Unitas were not gear users. And some of there records still go unchallenged to this day. And as far as safety goes again as I have learned on this board "show me the research that says it's not dangerous". Now let me go take my Test-Enanth shot before I hit the sack! LMAO!

    LOL. I found that article originally. I was at a local restaurant picking up some food, and looked on the counter and there it was. I thought it would be nice for the boards.

    Over an athlete that busts his ass for years and has to overcome some of the greatest adversity to work his way to being the best?

    I don't understand this comparison.

    "One of Fost's favorite examples of what he calls "the hypocrisy and the moral incoherence of the anti-drug hysteria movement" is that of erythropoietin, or EPO, which physiologically replicates the effects of training at altitude or sleeping in a low-oxygen tent. But the latter two are approved of, while EPO use is banned."

    Training at altitude and low oxygen tents are natural. I don't think EPO is considered natural. Am I missing this guys point here?

    I find it hard to believe that any world class athlete, pharmacetically enhanced or natural, didn't bust their ass for years to get where they are.

    Darn ****ing right.. It takes a lot to get me fired up enough to cus online.. Great post..

    I couldn't possibly agree more... that, for 1), It is preposterous to mention "androgenic steroids" in the same breath with recreational drugs.. The two groups of drugs have only their illicit status in common. Well, androgenic steroids too, like rec drugs, make a fantastic scapegoat candidate. Nothing excuses irresponsibility quite like the 'drug problems' card, just like A Get Out of Jail Free Pass, slap it down and the heat is off. Drugs are always something that people will rally around (against, actually). Recall a year ago when Rush limbaugh was exposed for painkiller abuse.. which, poetically, went down right after his "lock'em and throw away the key" comments regarding drug users..

    McCain is just a clown... Following Bush's lead, speak out about steroids.. Absolutely, under no circumstances should the issue of AAS be addressed by these elected idiots simply because there have to be 50 more important topics to talk about before "steroid" is even uttered..


    I have said for a years that anabolic steroids could not be as unhealthy as cigarrettes. Now, seven or so years ago when I said it, it was more of a gut feeling than anything else.. I really wasn't prepared to debate it. However, with the knowledge I have picked up over the years from cancer research, beyond a shadow of a doubt, I can say that cigarette smoking is more dangerous than wreckless anabolic steroid use.. and challenge anyone who disagrees.
