    This is just ridiculous. While I caution anyone against the use of AAS (androgenic anabolic steriods) this kind of nonsense does little to advance the case against steroids. In every case where propaganda has been used to influence abstinence type behavior it has backfired and had the exact opposite effect. Think Refer Madness from the 1930's.

    These pictures are so far beyond even the freakiest of roids using bodybuilders that they aren't even funny. Anyone that buys this crap should come see my about some land in Florida.

    These types of nonsense pictures only serve to put an even greater stain and stigma upon one of the healthiest activities that a human can engage in - bodybuilding. The vast majority of regular people who are bodybuilders are working their a*s off to look like they do, and would never even consider using AAS. For the professional competitive bodybuilder unfortunately the reverse is true, and the vast majority of them are AAS users. Many great bodybuilders left competitive bodybuilding because of that type of abuse in competition and the fact that its hard to compete against the chemically enhanced freaks of the day. That being said that represents and enormously small part of the bodybuilding community.

    Perhaps more beneficial would be a discussion of the benefits of bodybuilding include improvements in muscular strength and endurance, cardiovascular function, metabolism, coronary risk factors, psychosocial well-being, reduced speed of aging, increased longevity and lower risk of all cause mortality, as well as greater functional capacity with increasing age. Getting more specific according the the American College of Sports Medicine there are important improvements in the following physiological variables; Bone mineral density, Body composition,
    % Fat, LBM (Lean Body Mass), Strength, Glucose metabolism, Insulin response to glucose challenge, basal insulin levels, Insulin sensitivity, Serum lipids, HDL Cholesterol LDL Cholesterol, Resting heart rate Stroke volume, resting and maximal blood pressure at rest Systolic, Diastolic, O2max, Submaximal and maximal endurance time, and basal metabolism.
