Reasons for prohibition

Steroids are banned in many countries around the world under various pretexts. For example, in our country they are classified as potent drugs. The list of banned substances included virtually all drugs that are popular among athletes. Today we will try to find out why steroids are prohibited in the CIS countries?

Since the creation of anabolic drugs for a long time was considered as medicinal products, and they could be authorized only by doctors. Medical workers determined their dosage and monitored their patients. They could be purchased only by adults. The steroid boom began almost immediately after their appearance. In the late sixties and early seventies, most athletes representing power sports used anabolics. Sports functionaries reacted to this quickly enough, and in 1975 the International Olympic Committee introduced steroids into the list of banned substances.  Already at the next Olympic Games, held in 1976 in Canada, for the first time a test was conducted for doping. Of course, such measures could not force athletes to abandon steroids. The most famous doping scandal is connected with the Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson, who was caught using illegal substances during the 1988 Olympics. In the US, fighting with steroids began much earlier than in Russia. Even today, the Congress often raises questions about strengthening control over the use of AAS. To answer the question why they forbade anabolics, it is necessary to understand why they are considered such an evil. In the medical literature, you can find a large number of references to the harmful effects of anabolics on the body. Undoubtedly, if used incorrectly, AAS can cause irreversible effects and even lead to death. Scientists have studied the effects of drugs on the liver and this is often called the main reason for the ban of steroids. However, the most dangerous here are tableted anabolics, but injection does not harm the liver. It is believed that the use of steroids can even lead to the development of liver cancer, but there is currently no evidence for this.

Many athletes can't understand why they still banned steroids. In the pharmacy today you can buy much more toxic medications. For example, the known paracetamol, if used improperly, can cause complete destruction of the liver. It is also necessary to recall the soft anabolic, for example, Winstrol, which is also listed as a prohibited substance.


How dangerous are steroids?  Scientists have found that with moderate use of anabolics they are able to increase the efficiency of the body's defense mechanisms, but medical workers refuse to accept this fact. One can not but acknowledge the fact that steroids are used in traditional medicine to treat a large number of diseases. At the same time, and the presence of side effects when using AAS to deny it would be foolish. However, most of them are not dangerous to humans and rather are irritating.  For example, acne. Of course, this is unpleasant from the aesthetic point of view of the phenomenon, but a danger to health does not represent.

With prolonged use of anabolics in the body, the synthesis of endogenous male hormone decreases, which can cause testicular atrophy. But this process is reversible, and with properly conducted reconstructive therapy, there is no threat to the body.

Most of the "terrible" side effects, which fighters talk about with anabolics, are contrived, and insignificant ones can be quickly eliminated. In the same America to combat male hair loss, Finasteride is used, which is also listed as prohibited. Yes, they use this tool for other purposes, because the main task of Finasteride is the fight against hyperplasia of the prostate. The mechanism of drug exposure is based on a decrease in the rate of conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. This substance is the main cause of alopecia. Similarly, the situation is with tretinoin. It is used to eliminate stretch marks of the skin, wrinkles and acne.

The list of side effects from its use is similar to steroids, but it can be purchased.  It is very interesting to understand the issue of prosecution for the spread of steroids. For this, it is necessary to find out what is meant by this concept-steroid. For example, in the United States, any hormonal drug, which is a chemical derivative of testosterone, is assigned to such. Also under this definition are progestins and estrogens. For some reason, not all drugs based on male hormone derivatives, progestins or estrogens are considered banned. What is the reason for such selectivity is difficult to understand.

It is very difficult to understand the point of view of people who initiated the ban of steroids in different countries of the world. However, nothing can be done and it is necessary to put up with such a decision. Of course, you have the opportunity to purchase all the necessary anabolic drugs in the appropriate stores of sports pharmacology. Find them in the online is not much work at the same time it is not guaranteed, that steroids will be delivered, for this our store PharmaCity.me  take care.
