Does nutritional supplements like whey protein contain steroids? Or, are, they harmful?

No steroids: Supplements bought legally within the US do not contain steroids. Whey protein and other nutritional supplements are generally not harmful, but are also not necessary for adequate muscle development- appropriate diet can supply all you need, and supplements are costly. There are also some supplements, like creatine, that while generally safe can pose harm in selected people.
