    New Study

    There's a new study entitled "Effects of androgenic -anabolic steroids in
    athletes" by Hartgens F, Kuipers H. [Sports Med. 2004;34(8):513-54.] The
    study doesn't involve any new experiments, but instead reviews the
    scientific literature.

    Some of the findings are obvious and well-known, but it's always good to
    have scientific evidence when there's so much hearsay.

    According to this study, androgenic-anabolic steroids :

    -increase body mass and strength
    -do not decrease body fat
    -have no effect on endurance
    -disrupt endogenous production of testosterone and gonadotrophins, for up
    to months
    -raise blood pressure and depress HDL-, HDL2- and HDL3-cholesterol levels
    -do not affect cardiac structure and function in humans according to
    echocardiographic studies, but have in animal studies
    -do not appear to affect the liver
    -strongly affect psyche and behaviour, increasing aggression and hostility
    -do not seem to result in depression or withdrawl except in a small number
    of users
    -are often used by people with low self-esteem and a dissatisfaction with
    their body image

    The article's authors warn that they might be underestimating the side
    effects, because most experiments tend to involve smaller doses of
    steroids than many recreational users.
