Profile of a Steroid User

posted by Dr. Cohen on August 11, 2012 18:48 as Steroids

I have received several questions regarding an article I co-authored on anabolic steroid use some years ago. Like any research, the study is not without its methodical flaws, however, it was and remains the largest sampling of anabolic steroid users. Our findings from that research suggest that the majority of adult steroid users began using steroids after reaching the age of majority and were not involved in organized athletics. Aesthetics appear to be the primary motivator leading to steroid use and the average steroid user does not resemble to profile typically associated with illicit drug users or that which is portrayed in the media.
