Who knew that taking drugs may affect your brain? Anabolic steroids are usually viewed as harmless, however, a new study shows a prominent link between anabolic-androgenic steroids and mental health problems later in life. The study was performed at the University of Gothenburg, which is the third oldest Swedish university.
The study was done on 700 former Swedish wrestlers, weightlifters, power lifters and throwers. Twenty percent admitted to using steroids at some point during their career.
The abuse of these steroids is often linked to heart problems, and liver damage, among other health disorders.
If you are using anabolic steroids for gain in a sport, you should consider other options, as well as quitting. In most sports it is illegal to take. You should also consult a doctor.
