It’s unethical and illegal to use steroids in sports…..well at least that’s the big debate. The athletes using steroids are at double risk; the risk of steroid side effects and the risk of sports ban. Anabolic steroids are performance enhancing drugs, and the athletes using steroids are often using anabolic steroids to amplify their performance levels, strength, and stamina. So what if you could buy “legal steroids”? Should they be allowed ?

Use of anabolic steroids in high doses is steroid abuse, which may serious side effects and dangerous consequences.

The athletes using steroids may also experience to several serious consequences that may include aggressiveness, depression, anxiety and uncontrolled bouts of anger.

The athletes using steroids are always at risk of getting tested positive for using anabolic steroids, which are legally prohibited for sports use. These athletes can get life ban or some other penalties slapped on them. There are a number of instances when athletes using steroids, getting tested positive for doping, are made to quit sports for life. The Canadian sprinter, Ben Johnson has to lose his gold when he failed doping test. Johnson’s urine samples were found containing Stanozolol. He was banned for two year, in 1993 again, he was found guilty of doping at a race in Montreal and was subsequently banned from the sport for life.

The American Olympic and world 100-meter champion Justin Gatlin failed a drug test on 29 July, 2006, and consequently an eight year ban from track and field was slapped on him.

“We need to show good faith for the young kids, the next generation coming up. Today, I tell the kids don’t use drugs, because it’s bad for you, says Ben Johnson to the next generation of athletes.

Mark McGwire only Used “Legal Steroids”.

MCGWIRE-steroidsProfessional Baseball Player Mark McGwire never used Anabolic Steroids. This has been confirmed. The product he both was both accused of using-and he admitted to using, was in fact what they refer to as “legal steroids”. These types of muscle building supplements ARE NOT banned, or illegal, nor have the ever been. What Mark McGwire was acused of using was a product shortly referred to as “ANDRO”. Although the chemical name “DeHydroEpiAndrosterone” sounds very pharmaceutical, this is actually nothing more than a product you will find at every nutrition store in America – DHEA. That’s right. It’s sold at Walmart, Sam’s club, Costco, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and just about any other store that sells vitamins. 

McGwire became a household name in 1998 when he faced off against Chicago Cub Sammy Sosa as they both battled it out for the MLB home run record. McGwire prevailed, hitting 70 home runs in a single season. Despite this accomplishment, McGwire’s name continues to be mired by the ongoing investigations into steroid use in professional baseball.

mark-mcgwire-steroidsThough McGwire has never admitted to steroid use nor has he ever tested positive, many of his accomplishments have been questioned due to his inclusion in Jose Canseco’s book “Juiced.” Pointedly, when McGwire testified before the House Government Reform Committee, he refused to answer several questions while under oath, saying: “My lawyers have advised me that I cannot answer these questions without jeopardizing my friends, my family, and myself.”

While no legal action has been taken against McGwire, he has suffered in the court of public opinion. In his first year of Hall of Fame eligibility, he received less than a quarter of possible votes.

After only seven years as a professional cycler, Landis won the 2006 Tour de France. He was considered a dark horse contender, with the assumption being that either Ivan Basso or Jans Ullrich would take the top prize. However, after the two cyclists were forced to withdraw from the Tour, Landis emerged as the front runner. Although Landis got off to a disappointing start, his unbelievable 20 km solo breakaway on stage 17 helped to pave the way for his eventual victory.

Landis was stripped of that victory when it was announced that a urine test taken after his epic performance in stage 17 had come back positive with an unusually high ratio of the hormone testosterone to the hormone epitestosterone (T/E ratio). Though Landis’ camp claimed there were inconsistencies with the way the urine was tested, the International Cycling Union (UCI) upheld WADA’s (World Anti-Doping Agency) ruling, and Landis was banned from professional cycling for two years.

The two-year ban ended in early 2009, and Landis is scheduled to participate in the Battenkill Professional Invitational on April 19.
