Steroid use and heart problems
Is there any factual evidence that shows a relationship between steroid use and heart problems?

Most defenitely yes...
Long term heavy steroid use may cause damage to the heart, liver and kidneys. Heart problems are due to the blocking of arteries by fatty deposits and increased blood pressure due to water and salt retention (both could lead to a heart attack). Possible liver problems include jaundice, cancer of the liver and formation of blood filled lesions in the liver tissue.

Gear is correct, but someone did just post a Thread showing a study about test previously being thought to contribute to Heart Problems, and now this study shows that may not be the case after all.
But I don't put much stock in it.
