- You’ve seen them, and you thought you knew what was going on. The muscle-heads at the gym, the all- star basketball player, the amazing offensive tackle, and the lightning fast track sprinter. Shock waves went through the sports world when Canadian track superstar Ben Johnson was denied his gold medal at the 1988 Olympics after tests showed he had taken anabolic steroids.
- Canadian track star Ben Johnson was denied his gold medal in the 1988 Olympics after he tested positive for anabolic steroids. This incident sparked worldwide attention to the extent of anabolic steroid use. To date, the International Olympic Committee has barred the use of seventeen anabolic steroids.
- This process is done rather quickly. Eventually chemists discovered how to modify testosterone molecules to make them last longer, and this is how anabolic steroids came into play.
- Drugs have been used in sports almost as long as sports themselves have been around. The ancient Incas discovered that the ashes from burned leaves of the Coca tree gave the people great stores of energy, and made sleep unnecessary for hours or even days, it was later discovered to be the stimulant cocaine.
- Even if you didn t have any or little knowledge of steroids and were asked this question, you would probably answer no. Why? Would it be because a high school kid somewhere in California died from taking them? Or would it be because you read it in Readers Digest? Many people think you are selling your soul to the devil when you take steroids.
- Anabolic steroids are powerful muscle-building and performance-enhancing compounds. They are many times used as the “secret-weapon” behind many world-class athletes, their performance, and bodybuilding. Steroids increase the amount of muscle one can build.
- In America and all around the world, people are subjected to things that may belittle themselves and their identities. We are shown a world where people must be a specific height and weight, dress a certain way, talk a certain way to be accepted into society.
- If someone guaranteed you amazing results in the weight room with minimal effort by just taking a pill would you take it? You probably would! But, if you knew that these pills could potentially knock 20 years off your life. Would you take it then? You would be suprised to find out how many people would answer yes to that question.
- Steroids are organic compounds that happen naturally in plants and animals. All steroids share the same basic ring structure. This is a chain of seventeen carbon atoms, looped around, and linked together by chemical bonds to form a four-ring structure.
- Testosterone was often referred to as the "male" hormone, because it is responsible for developing some of the male characteristics such as lowering of the voice and hair growth, and because the male body produces much more of it than the female. However, it is responsible for stimulating quite a few other processes.
- According to Hank Nuwer in his book Steroids, steroids are anabolic drugs that build growth hormones that include the androgens (male sex hormones) principally testosterone and estrogen and progestogens (female sex hormones).
- The purpose of this paper is to educate the reader on the harmful side effects of steroid use and the toll they take on the body of the user. I also discuss the legal consequences of steroid possession/use and describe the false claims made by steroid marketers.
- “I just wanted to boost my performance.” These are the words spoken by numerous athletes who have been captured using steroids. The continuous stress and pressure on athletes to perform well has caused some to breakdown and take steroids as an easy way to bulk up.
- The first synthetic anabolic steroid was developed in 1953, having a strength building effect five times stronger than the natural hormone testosterone. Not since the development of the anabolic steroid has any performance enhancer been so effective and so desired by athletes.
- The 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea, proved to be one of the most exciting Olympic games of all time. World records fell in everyday of the 14-day event; in every sport ranging from shuttlecock to track and field, records fell like dominos. The most competitive sport in the 1988 Olympiad was the men’s 100-meter dash, with a field consisting of the ten fastest men in the world, at the time.
- Should steroids be legal? Well let’s start of with what are steroids? Steroids are classified in the encyclopedia as “any of class of lipids having a molecular structure based on four joined carbon rings with hydrogen molecules attached ”(encylopedia com)
- In the past three decades, steroids have become a serious problem more than ever, especially in the athletic field. Steroids are an anabolic drug used to build growth hormones that include the androgens (male sex hormones), principally testosterone, estrogen, and progestogens (female sex hormones).
- The use of performance-enhancing supplements among athletes should be banned from all athletic sports and competition, in that it provides an unfair advantage over other athletes trying to excel naturally. Performance-enhancing drugs are a controversial topic in today’s society, which are currently under debate.
- Steroids are groups of natural chemicals, which include fat and all the things fat can break down in the body?s system. From this break down, the body then can be ?boosted? and a human being can do things that most people consider physically impossible.
- Everyone has a view on steroids whether or not it is shaped by mass media, schools, or peers. Not many people have a realistic idea of what steroids really are and what they do. I spent a few hours in various diet and fitness related chat rooms on the net while doing this paper and found out that the common stereotype is that all steroids are harmful and produce breasts.
