From TED Ed.
Dig into the science of how anabolic steroids and their recreational use can affect your body, organs and brain.
Steroids. They’ve caused global scandals. They’re banned in most athletic competitions. Yet the same properties that help elite athletes and bodybuilders improve performance also make steroids valuable for treating many illnesses and injuries, such as AIDS and cancer. So if steroids are used as medicine, they must be safe to use recreationally, right? Anees Bahji explores the effects of steroids.
