“There was a joke: If you did not test positive for steroids, you were fired,” former wrestler and broadcaster Bruno Sammartino told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in 1991. Even 24 years later, many of the same issues rise to the surface.

Health problems. Lots of things that can go wrong here but I wont bother to go into too much detail because you have heard it all before. These problems are very dosage dependent and drug dependent.

Damaging your kidneys and liver is another relatively common problem as the body works overtime to filter out stuff that it doesnt want. Then there is the problem with natural testosterone production being shut down.
