In brief: A no-brainer.

Cons: high blood pressure, damage to the immune system, high cholesterol, diabetes, breast enlargement (gynecomastia), bad acne, liver damage, obnoxiously aggressive behavior, stretch marks, cardiac arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, heart attacks, sudden cardiac death.
..And oh, yes, impotence. Not to mention that it will get you banned from competition permanently. Pros: i can't think of any.
