Anabolic Steroids are synthetic or human made, variations of the male sex hormone which is testosterone. It stimulates growth in many other types of tissues, especially bone and muscle. However, it has also its downsides. In taking this kind of drug, it has its side effects in our body. According to National Institute on Drug Abuse, anabolic steroids misuse might lead to serious, even permanent health problems some of these are liver disease such as liver tumors and cysts, kidney disease,absence of sperm in semen, abnormal development of mammary glands in men causing breast enlargement. Thus,  it should not be legalized. The usage of anabolic steroids should be made illegal especially to those athletes who are taking this kind of drugs.

Anabolic steroids can be addictive, even though it does not cause the same high as other drugs, they can lead to a substance use disorder. This disorder occurs when a person continues to misuse steroids.

People who misuse steroids might experience this withdrawal symptoms if they stop the usage of it, some of these are fatigue, restlessness, loss of appetite, and sleep problems.

Anabolic steroids do not only affect our body but also it affects our brain. People who use this kind of drug do not realize the effect that it causes to their brains. It can lead to being paranoid, extreme aggression, delusions and mania.

 Anabolic steroids might be helping the body of the people but we don’t know is, this drug is slowly killing the physical and mental health of a human being. The use of this drug could be controlled if the government will focus in the production and distribution of this drug. The production of this drug should be limited so that it can be only use in medical purposes. And when buying this kind of drug, a prescription of the doctor should be presented so that only who needs this drug can buy this. It is not necessary to use Anabolic steroids just to boost performance or to have a better build; there are so many ways on how to improve your muscular build. Stop the usage of steroids and promote a healthy way of living!
