Don’t make the mistake of trying to elevate your body to caveman status with the use of performance enhancing drugs.
Steroids may make you strong, but they can also stunt your growth and make you lose your hair. Getting big muscles the safe and natural way will make you look good while staying healthy.
Changes in Hair Loss and Growth
Anabolic steroids can convert to chemicals that interfere with the way your body produces new hair growth. According to the Association Against Steroid Abuse, increased hair growth on the body is a common side effect experienced by steroid users. Also, steroids can metabolize in the body and convert to a chemical that is well known for causing hair loss in men.
Doing steroids won’t make you more of a man. In fact, the side effects associated with steroid abuse can actually interfere with the use of your sex organs. The Nemours Foundation warns of the possibility of the shrinking of the testicles and difficulties getting an erection. Pain when urinating is another complaint of men who use steroids. Users could develop breast tissue due to the lack of testosterone made naturally by the body. This could also cause sterility in men.
More Dangers Ahead
The immediate physical effects are not the only dangers surrounding steroids. You may have heard the term “roid rage” before. This state of mind may cause you to feel irritable and angry without any provocation. There are also risks associated with using needles to administer the steroids. HIV and hepatitis can be contracted from using unsterilized needles to shoot the steroids into your bloodstream.
Long-term use of steroids will put you at risk for all sorts of serious medical conditions. The heart can become enlarged because of steroids, elevating your risk of heart attack. Liver function is decreased and users can experience liver toxicity.
Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that steroids will make you stronger and bigger without any risks. Eating healthy, cardio workouts and strength training can increase your endurance and strength naturally.

CAVEMENWORLD’s independent, investigative journalism and graphics take a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure.
