1. Any achievements made by the player are tainted and that's bad for baseball as a whole.
2. Our youth and especially our young athletes see achievement via illegal substances and may decide this is the only way they can compete.
3. Baseball is a business and player's peformance transfers to revenue. If player A uses a banned substance and succeeds, player B now has the added pressure to break the law in order to maintain value.
Absolutely... nailed it right on the head
steroids can be really harmful cos there's always a tradeoff when they divert your body's resources to making it grow.. so it messes up many other basic processes of the body. one of the main side effects are to the liver which works harder to eliminate poisonous substances and toxins produced by steroids. and thats how the liver fails.
btw- did anyone know that the steroids taken by athletes are derivatives of Testosterone and Andro is actually a group of steroids which really resemble Testosterone in their structure.
anyways heres an interesting piece of info- one of the most common side effects of steroids is known as "bitch tits"... LoL... i think you can pretty much guess what that means... it happens when steroids are converted into ESTROGEN during their metabolism by the body.
so to anyone whos taking 'roids- have fun !!!
Bitch tits are everyone's biggest fear but they're pretty easily averted by taking an anti-E while on a hormone with estrogenic side effects.
