Breaking News From AP
How does one spot anabolic steroid use in adolescent girls?
Well, here is what the experts look for.
--Sudden weight gain of 20 or 30 pounds of muscle, rather than fat.
--Increase in facial and body hair, and loss of hair on the head.
--Deepening of the voice, a decrease in menstrual cycles and stunted growth, including smaller breasts.
--Sudden development of severe acne on the face and back.
--Aggressive behavior or angry outbursts, known as "roid rage."
--Paranoia, hallucinations and psychotic behavior.
Why is this breaking news? And why aren't more girls doing steroids? Perhaps if AP would just get the word out about all these wonderful benefits.
