Musicians Take Steroids Too?
Apparently that’s the claim! According to the NY Times, an Albany newspaper was quoted as having uncovered thousands of names linked to attempting to obtain steroids or human growth hormone. What I want to know, is why? What could this possibly do for a musician? Who was cited? Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, Timbaland, Wyclef Jean and Tyler Perry to name a few. While none of these celebrities have been found to be doing anything illegal, it certainly makes one raise their eyebrows. I mean, why?!? While HGH has legitimate uses–in young teens that are not developing as quickly as they should, for instance–it is the misuse that can cause permanent damage. It is also a concern than many health spas and anti-aging facilities are prescribing the drugs without even meeting the patients. I wonder when people will learn that steroid abuse has actual harmful effects?Tags: Aging, Drug, drugs, health, hormone, steroid, steroids
