Anabolic steroids: First of all, it is now a significant legal problem. It is against the law. There are also health risks with serious adverse effects on mental function (a tendency towards anger or rage or aggression) and on the liver. Anabolic steroids are not a good idea unless you have a bone marrow problem or weight loss from cancer.
