Most steroids used for medical purposes are synthesized in labs. These are used by doctors to treat a wide variety of diseases, such as muscle wasting, growth deficiency, asthma, skin conditions, and others. Two groups of people commonly abuse steroids: athletes who believe that building up more muscle will give them a competitive edge, and people who are concerned about their personal attractiveness, who wish to enhance their physique. Buying and using steroids without a prescription is illegal--and dangerous. Steroids have many serious effects on the body and mind. Too much of them can cause harm and permanent damage.
