S: Anabolic Steroids
BC: THE END
FC: Anabolic Steroids By:Dylan Fulmer
2: Have you ever wondered how far your body can get from using a drug that will cheat your way for you? Well there is a drug that was invented for your purpose, Anabolic Steroids, also known as "Juice", "Arnold", and "Hulk". However it may help you accomplish your short term goals, this drug can also affect you in the long run. Many MLB, NFL, and top Olympic athletes are being busted and accused of using anabolic steroids now more than ever.
3: Anabolic Steroids should continue to be banned because of the illegal use, health effects and the unfair advantages it allows athletes to have.
4: Reason 1: Steroid stacking is no good!
5: "Users also frequently combine several different types of steroids in a process known as stacking."(Stefan). "So by using multiple forms of steroids the user believes that the drug will have a much better growth rate than using a single drug."(Stefan)." These people are actually shortening their life span because of the amount of the drug that they are injecting. So I believe that the more steroids you combine the increased danger level rises.
6: Reason 2: Unfair advantage steroids gives athletes compared to those who don't use them.
7: Another reason why steroids should continue to be banned is the unfair advantage is gives athletes in all sports. " Taking anabolic steroids can enlarge muscles, increase strength and endurance, and reduce fatigue."(Fraser) A typical athlete would spend years training on a strict diet, endless hours of training and an intimidating mindset. An athlete whom injects steroids will only need about 4-6 months of intense training, descent diet depending on the sport. " The use of steroids comes with potentially career-ending consequences, physical, psychological, and self-esteem risks, some of which are irreversible."(Lew)
8: Opposing Views "The removal of doping controls have major benefits: less cheating, increased solidarity and respect between athletes, more focus on sport and not on rules." (ProCon.org) " Allowing the use of performance enhancers would make sports safer as there would be less pressure on to develop new safe performance enhancers more effective at safe dosages." (ProCon.org)
9: What I have researched about the positive side of steroids is that if we were to allow them into the world of sports and competition that doctors would magically make the dosage safer and the steroids safer to use. Doctors will monitor the athlete as they take the drug and see how the cope with the drug as they are on it and coming off of it. People think that if we make a safer Anabolic Steroid that it will make the game and competition fair and fun.
