Default 5-6% of youth using steroids

Not sure of the accuracy. Posting from the Tyler Hooten site:

The Taylor Hooton Foundation | Fighting Steroids Abuse

For the past several years, the Taylor Hooton Foundation has been telling the nation that 5-6% of our kids in middle schools and high schools are using anabolic steroids. There is now an independent, scientific university study to back this fact up.

Yesterday's Pediatrics, the Official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, published a study recently which was completed by the University of Minnesota.

The U of M team studied 2793 diverse adolescents from 20 urban middle and high schools. Mean age was 14.4. Here is the bottom line of their study:

5.9% of boys reported steroid use
4.6% of girls reported steroid use
34.7% of boys reported use of protein powders or shakes
90% of boys and 80% of girls were exercising to become more buff
“If they’re interested in developing muscle at 13, 14, and 15, what are they going to be doing at 18 or 20?” says the study’s lead researcher Marla Eisenberg, an assistant professor in pediatrics in the division of Adolescent Health and Medicine at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine. “Are they going to be doing something more dangerous?”
