This post is for eductaional purposes to elite athletes who have dependance on drugs for easy and early results. These results may be tempting but can lead to a permanent disability to other vital organ systems like kidneys, liver, muscles etc. The message to spread is to have a physique without compromising on nutritional demands of the body and to not be dependant on drugs for such high level sports.
The Coaches and trainers should also learn side effects of growth hormones, steroids and anabolic hormones (testosterone) before administring them and ruining the career of such good players by making them dependant on these artificial stimulators.
