Last week we published a new article on the topic of youth and steroids. The article examines some of the reasons why young people choose to use steroids. These reasons often extend beyond simply improving athletic performance, as teens also use steroids to improve their physical appearance — whether it be by gaining more muscle or reducing fat.
The fact is steroids have an array of negative effects, including mood swings, aggressive behavior, and alterations to their reproductive organs. This infographic about youth and steroids highlights some of these side effects, as well as shares some statistics from a study in 2012.
