MTF annually assesses drug use among the Nation's 8th, 10th, and 12th grade students. Steroid use among all three grades assessed remained unchanged from 2005 to 2006, for both boys and girls, although significant reductions were noted since 2001 for lifetime** use. Past year use was reported by percent of 8th-graders, percent of 10th-graders, and percent of 12th-graders in 2006. Perceived risk of steroid use, which is collected only for seniors, increased significantly, from percent in 2005 to percent in 2006. Disapproval of steroid use, also collected only for seniors, did not change significantly from 2005 to 2006.
Anabolic Steroids for Sport
Hey, great list!
I don’t use them personally, but I train with a few women who do. I’ve noticed some of the side effects and they’ve mentioned it too.
But I didn’t know what to look for and how many alternatives there were – so while I’ll probably still choose not to use any (my goals are just to stay active), I’ll pass this along to my friends who want different results than I do. Maybe it’ll help them make some good choices, or to switch to something with fewer (or no) side effects.
