Quote:
The benefits and dangers of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs have been well-documented. Bodybuilders use them to increase the size of their muscles, with added strength being a secondary effect. This contrasts with athletes, who mainly use these drugs to illegally increase strength and speed, with added size mainly being secondary (with the exception of sports like American football, where added size is also a desirable attribute). Although many bodybuilding contests are sanctioned by organizations that ban the use of such substances, lax or non-enforcement of these rules — along with prolific and sometimes universal use among competitors, particularly at high-level events — has in effect made their use an accepted and condoned reality. All users run the risk of a host of side-effects, which run a broad gamut depending on the particular drug used, from acne to liver and kidney damage to increased tendencies toward violent behavior, and numerous other maladies. An in-depth overview and analysis of the specific risks and benefits of performance-enhancing drugs is beyond the scope of the book Training for Mass.
