    Many young people take anabolizant steroids to obtain a fast increase of their muscular mass, but is this the best choice? I read at what are the side effects. Androgen steroids have some negative effects on men and women who use them for muscular mass increase. Anabolizant steroids may produce long-term side effects for different organs or sometimes even lead to behavioral changes for those who use them.

    Future coaches in the making. Whatever it takes to win and keep the big raises coming in! Some soldiers and law enforcement officers use them to keep you safe from the bad guys. (I would too if was going into combat) Sports jocks use them to up the score on some stupid game that will mean nothing in a few months.

    Yeah.. they need to do that here too only most of the ones here are using something that doesnt show up on a drug test! Testosterone, the body produces it naturally but in bulk it BULKS you up! And causes major mood swings and anger management issues! Don't be upset here either. You know who you are and I am not saying ALL of them do it. But I do know some of them do!

    When are we going to see "Safe Families: Steroids & Law Enforcement?" Instead of all these unworthy news reports(i.e. wrong name tattoo), maybe KXII can do an investigative report on that. KXII, please go ask different law enforcement agencies around the area to submit samples to be tested for steroids. I bet there would be quite a few officers of the law that would refuse to be tested. Don't get upset officers, this would be for your own good.
