This paper introduces how Anabolic -Androgenic Steroids (AAS) negatively affect to physical, psychological, and social aspects of human. The study of AAS is just at the beginning stage and there are not a lot of evidence that proves whether AAS is good or bad. Nevertheless, AAS abuse is definitely risky, so people need to be aware of the danger of AAS.
Anabolic-Androgenic Steroids, the synthetic derivatives of the male hormone testosterone, are drugs that are commonly prescribed to treat debilitating diseases. However, healthy people are increasingly abusing them to improve muscular development and athletic performance. AAS abuse has been associated with a wide range of adverse and potentially damaging side effects – particularly when taken in high doses and for long periods. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the physical, psychological, and social effects of Anabolic-Androgenic steroids by exploring symptoms and examples.
