Example of why steroids are banned...
ESPN has had some balanced articles recently on steroids , but this guy has an agenda to meet so he just ratcheted up the hype. My favorite part is when he implies steroids caused a construction worker to hogtie a man to a tree and beat him to death for no apparent reason.
CAUTION: May induce roid rage

Let this be a lesson to all of you...your news media feeds you what they want...how they want...not just when it pertains to gear, either. Before you jump on something...do your research..make an informed opinion.

Holy sh*t. That guy doesn't have a f*cking clue. A quote from his article sums his ignorance up precisely "That's because, according to Pope and Melloni, the vast majority of anabolic steroids ' effects on both the brain and the body have never been studied in animals, let alone humans." How can anyone spout their opinion as though it were fact and then debunk his entire argument with one sentence. Having actually used AS I would consider myself more of an expert than any of the degreed sources he uses. Here's another good one "But Melloni's most recent studies on hamsters suggests otherwise. After just one week of juicing -- the equivalent, he reckons, of what a human user might typically do in a year -- the animals turn ferociously aggressive". So who here uses 5 grams of test daily? And this 'Pope estimates that roughly 10 percent of steroid users are subject to "'roid rage " -- bursts of irrational, uncontrollable fury." Our own poll on AR proves this statement inaccurate. Another laughable statement "steroids are destroying sports and killing people, all across America, right now, as you sit reading this." This guy is a buffoon.

That article is not news and turns journalism into a joke. That is clearly an editorial that most people will assume to be news.
On another note, I was watching ESPNEWS this evening and there was a sports writer on there who was actually defending the use of steroids and said they were safe when used correctly. . . which he tied back to Bonds and Giambi and the others who had their personal trainers to make sure everything was done properly. Of course, he then conceded that most young people who use steroids do not take the proper precautions and are not fully aware of the dangers. I even heard him say that *gasp* Lyle Alzado's death was not related to steroids!

That guy is a ****in moron. I hate people who pretend to know what they are talking about but really have no clue. He said he used google, he probably typed in "Biased information on the Horrible Side Effects of Steroids " and hit search. Thats where his article came from. I wish he had an email address so i could tell him off. the ****er
