Sky News recently conducted their own investigation into the use of steroids in Britain, and the results were very surprising because according to this report, up to 1 million people could be using steroids on a regular basis.
It is not just young men aged between 18 and 35 who are using them either because children as young as 13 are said to be using steroids regularly to build serious muscle mass and to help them grow.
This is pretty worrying if you’re a parent because these steroids are illegal for a reason – they can seriously damage your health – and although many adults know the risks, I’m not sure many teenagers will be aware of the serious side effects associated with these drugs, particularly when taken at such a young age.
That’s why I will never advocate the use of steroids either on this website or when I’m with my workout buddies in the gym.
I’ve seen the damage they can do to people, and indeed I’ve known a few people who have dropped dead at a relatively young age because they were either regular users of steroids, or because they used to take steroids when they were younger and this ultimately led to complications later on in life.
If you really want to build huge muscles and enhance your physical appearance, you are better off sticking to a well-structured training program, and complimenting this with a protein-enriched diet.
You can then add some whey protein or one or two other muscle-building shakes and supplements if you are still struggling to see any results because these are generally very effective. Plus most importantly, they are safe for you to take if you use them as directed.
Alternatively if you really want to achieve the kind of results that you would get from taking anabolic steroids, but don’t want to suffer any of the side effects associated with these banned drugs, then you might want to consider taking some steroid alternatives such as these ones from Crazy Bulk.
I shall be reviewing many of these supplements in due course, but the point is that although they may not be quite as effective as anabolic steroids, they will still help you build some serious muscle, burn fat and increase performance safely and effectively because they are made from an effective combination of natural ingredients. Subsequently you don’t need any kind of prescription to buy any of these products.
You will find that many of them have similar names to the steroids that they are mimicking. For example, Winsol is their safe alternative to Winstrol, Anadrole is their alternative to Anadrol and D-BAL is their alternative to Dianabol. However don’t let that put you off because I have to emphasise once again that these are safe and legal steroid substitutes.
Anyway the point is that steroid abuse is rife in Britain at the moment, and from some of the other articles that I have read online, it seems to be increasingly common in many other countries as well, which is very sad to see because as I discussed above, there are other ways you can achieve results without resorting to these harmful steroids.
