Pictures of People with Steroids
Steroids are a form of organic compounds which are extracted from some specific species of plants, fungi and many different animals. People take steroids to enhance their body’s muscular growth. Steroids are basically of two types; Anabolic steroids and Corticosteroids. The purposes of both these kinds of steroids are however very different from one another. Anabolic steroids are prescribed by the doctor for muscle build up whereas; Corticosteroids are used to reduce swelling and over active immune responses.
Anabolic steroids which are used by most athletes and sportsmen are basically synthesized forms of Testosterone which is basically a male hormone. This hormone is naturally produced in both males and females and like all other hormones if one’s testosterone production goes out of balance then this can result in many serious consequences.
The reason why doctors prescribe steroids in the first place is for the treatment of some certain medical conditions, which can be as serious as in the treatment of muscle wasting which is seen in the case of AIDS to treating the delay of puberty and lack of testicular functions.
Steroids which are prescribed to enhance muscle build up and an individual’s athletic performance are forbidden and are therefore considered illegal. And without a doctor’s prescription it is illegal for someone to take steroids. Serious legal actions are taken against athletes who are caught on steroids. Yet still almost all the wrestlers and many athletes are on such steroids anyway. Since this is not a natural way for muscle build up and testosterone is provided to the body of the individual from an outside source and is clearly more than it is required by the human body, abnormalities in the body structure can be seen in people who are on such steroids and are taking them in excess.
Steroid intake shows totally different side effects in women than men. These side effects may include acute cases of acne, deepening of the voice and decreased breast size. Women who are on anabolic steroids develop a body structure that looks manlier than a normal male’s body structure. Excessive muscular tissue has been seen to be developing on different parts of their bodies. In some cases due to hormonal imbalance these steroids may even promote hair growth on your body for example some women who are on such illegal steroids are most likely to have hair growth on the facial region and other parts of their body as well.
Here is an attached video which includes images of people who are on anabolic steroids.
This video has several images of different people who are on these steroids to enhance their muscle build up. After seeing these images any sane person should not be tempted to take these steroids as all this muscle build up can cause so many diseases and make it harder for a person to function normally as with all this excess muscular bulk a person cannot simply move about normally and lead a normal healthy life. This is why it is best not to take any steroids unless they are prescribed to you by a doctor to treat a medical condition.
