    Anabolic Steroids,Growth Hormone,and Hypertrophy of the Heart

    http://www.mesomorphosis.com/article...-the-heart.htm

    Summary:

    The study suggests that :

    just like the Australians proved before, steroids are not as disastrous for the heart morphology as some agencies want you to believe;
    the combination with growth hormone does however add considerable cardiovascular risks to steroid cycles; and
    the deleterious effects wear off during wash out periods.
    Especially athletes in their late thirties and older should take their wash out periods seriously. The age of the subjects in the Finnish study ranged from 25 to 43. In this population age was the strongest predictor of the E/A ratio. The older they were, the lower their ratio ratio. (The Pearson’s correlation coefficient was –0.70. The coefficient of mean steroid dose and E/A ratio was –0.42.)
