Anabolic steroids?: Glucocorticoids are prescribed after weighing benefits vs the considerable risks, but Anabolic steroids will be used by maybe a million us gym types this year. Lawbreaking & cheating are bad for you, most women prefer a natural bodybuilder, and the greatest danger is to your mind -- you may do something you'll regret terribly. Physical dangers are real but usually less catastrophic.
