Despite the persistent outcry of the medical community, anabolic steroids are as popular as ever. Look at the person giving you the advice on taking them. If there is a devil, this is it. It is obvious for even the most infatuated that steroids are not good for you. However, they still take them. Even though they make people appear to be in great shape, people tend to prefer illusion to reality because this helps them escape impossible situations. If you can look like you are healthy then everything is fine. Taking steroids is no laughing matter. The heart attacks that they cause are nearly always fatal. Ignore this advice at your personal peril.
