At the same time, there exist a plethora of medical professionals that disagree with what has been said and accepted, and these professionals vehemently oppose this faulty logic and mawkishness, such as Dr. Jack Darkes who happens to be an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology and the Director of Interventions at the University of South Florida. Jack Darkes not only disagrees with this flawed reason and judgment, but has also warned against these foolish practices of blaming the suicide of a teenager or any life to only one single sole solitary factor referring in this case to the the use of anabolic steroids.
In truth, anabolic steroids can in fact be held accountable for certain amount of criminal activity, especially if the act involves violence. When you boost the testosterone levels in your body through artificaial means you are not allowing your body to produce its own testosterone. In this case, the hormonal imbalance can cause unnecessary aggression. Sometimes this roid rage is important because it helps increase the competitive spirit in the user; however, it can have certain side effects such as prolonged rage even after the competitive environment ceases to exist . There can also be some amount of depression as the body recuperates.
In a similar study conducted in 2002, 30 male adults with HIV were administered 600mg of Deca-Durabolin (an anabolic steroid) for 16 weeks . Like before, there were no significant negative changes found in these men except for a slight decrease in the level of HDL cholesterol. In fact, one of the groups in this study had undergone weight training. This group experienced an improvement in their cholesterol levels. These studies are clear proof that the responsible use of anabolic steroids in healthy male adults does not pose a significant health risk.
