Myth: anabolic steroids are unhealthy and magically help people build muscle
.
someone asked me in person if i take steroids recently, and this has been something i've been asked before. yes i was given some kind of steroids by doctors 2 times in my life to my knowledge once to save my life and the other time before i had back surgery in an effort to prevent surgery. about 2 years ago i wanted to see what would happen if i tried steroids when i was healthy, but i don't think they were anabolic steroids, and it didn't help any more than eating or drinking a lot of sugar. you need to remember sitting on a couch and taking steroids doesn't actually help. steroids don't magically grow your muscles any faster than people who don't take steroids. steroids usually makes a person build muscle faster. steroids is a hormone, not gene therapy. it's similar to a cortizone shot, because cortizone is a cortical steroid. in fact cortical steroids are exactly as unhealthy as anabolic steroids (anabolic steroids are believed to build muscle the fastest out of all steroids, which may not be true). of the suppliments i've tried i find ginsing the best thing for working out i've ever taken. ginsing is added to some tea and some food. ginsing itself can be made into a tea. ginsing acts much like sugar, but in a different way. i have an almost full bottle of ginsing pills i don't take anymore. ginsing is pretty inexpensive anyway. i've also reduced the amount of sugar i am injesting over time.

the second half of this documentary explains anabolic steroids well. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1151309/ most things people think about steroids are incorrect. steroids are no less healthy than things like ginsing, multivitamins, and creatine. steroids should be classified as a suppliment, not a drug not allowed to be used in most sports. there is even a division in powerlifting for people who use powerful drugs like steroids, because nobody uses a weak dose of anabolic steroids when they intend to get stronger faster. i guess i could try suppliment pills again, but even if take the recommended dosages of pills correctly, all pills (even vitamins and "natural" pills) are theoretically more unhealthy than food the way pills are concentrated. people talk about natural and unnatural food and suppliments. pills are closer to the unnatural version of that. my mother used to tell me the more humans do to food, the more unhealthy that food is for you. this is more true than studies which will be probably be disproven in future years.

i'm 100% politically neutral. i do want to write donald trump said recently the media "spins" things in a bad way in so many words. the media makes things sound better or worse, and often hollywood and the media create untrue beliefs. if you tell enough people an untrue rumor, it becomes "everyone thinks this so it must have some truth" and untrue things can become true when told to enough people. michael jackson sung in "billie jean" "the lie becomes the truth". joe focht said the media used to inform. now the media forms beliefs.
