Teens and AAS
To piggy back Invids thread on his 14 y.o cousin (or nephew) (didn't want to hijack your thread bro) asking about AAS ... I wanted to drop some old stats on teens and AAS. This was back in my day ... as a HS kid on the wrestling team I was on a cycle at 15 yo. I don't endorse teens using AAS and we flame teens that show up here but education is truly the key to prevention.
I'm going to see if I can come up with a more current clinical study but in the mean time take a look at his .....
A 1970 survey of five American universities showed that 15% of college athletes were steroid abusers. By 1984, 20% of college athletes were using steroids . In 1975, anabolic abuse in Arizona high schools was 0.7% over all, with 4% of athletes admitting steroid use . A 1986 survey in Minneapolis revealed a 3% average rate of steroid abuse in grades 8, 10, and 12. In one of these high schools, the rate of use was 8% in senior males. In a 1988 survey in a suburban Chicago school, 6.5% of male students admitted taking steroids, and 2.5% of female students admitted steroid abuse. Surveys in 1989 estimated that there were 500,000 adolescent steroid abusers nationwide, and as many as 1 million steroid abusers of all ages in the United States. In November 1990, U.S. Federal Law classified all anabolic steroids as Controlled Dangerous Substances (Type 2).

Good info bro. If kids could just understand the dangers, this wouldnt be a problem.
