    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).
