Brett Mycles died from cardiac arythmia brought on by stimulant abuse. He may have been good looking, but, he was obviously an idiot, as well. Some folks react poorly to stimulants. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brett_Mycles
Brett's family also had a history of heart problems. They died, as well, but, without the false charges against AAS.
In years of study, not a single death has been attributable to AAS. That's why not a single organization recommended that AAS be controlled, and, in fact, they recommended that restrictions be more relaxed.
The sort of misinformation submitted here is tragic. In my 33+ years around it, I've never seen it, even once.
Perhaps that's why AAS and anti-aging is growing at a wild pace, and why true studies like those done right here at UNT continue to show the protections that AAS provide, and many health benefits, and well as remain the protocol of choice for the sickest of the sick. In studies of the very heaviest AAS users, mortality of the AAS users was still BELOW the average population AND they were in a much higher state of health, as well.
Remember: being fat is about the worst thing you can do for your health. Any pills (modified at C17, and in particular, statins (anti-cholesterol) and pain relievers) are vastly more hepatoxic, and overall "dangerous" than testosterone (not toxic at virtually any level, and naturally occurring in every human.) There are a wide range of physical and emotional health benefits to AAS use.
The problem here was stimulant abuse, not AAS. He was an idiot, and failed to listen to his body.
Here's a great piece of journalism done by HBO Real Sports (#99): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0LEj8IPHGU
Before you put forth garbage, make sure you have your science right.
As someone who is a benefactor of anti-aging (my doctor is very much in know), I could go all all day about how my "numbers" are perfect, and that I'm in the top 2% in fitness and so on.
The poster obviously did almost no research on the issue submitted.
Had this use been more out in the open, perhaps his situation may have been avoided. Had there been less misinformation, perhaps he could have been more intelligent.
Those of you who have studied statistics know that the larger the sample is, the larger the variance, and deviation. I.e., there's going to be a few dummies. There's going to be a few folks that are tragic stories. There's also going to be the median value which was not represented here.
Remember: obesity kills 6.5 MILLION folks prematurely. If we are truly concerned about saving lives, fat people need to be outlawed.
This case is on the outside fringe, and while tragic, does not represent the overall science of the situation. It is part of the deviation in the overall sample.
