Things have definitely changed over the past century, as we can currently do things much more efficiently then before. The cost of this efficiency may seem inexpensive in many ways, however we do not realize that the cost of these new technologies do not just include money, time and labour, but it a
Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that bewilders us all.. There is no known cause. We do know that MS (multiple sclerosis) is a disease where the myelin breaks down and is replaced by scar tissue. The demyelination can slow down or block the flow of signals to and from the central nervous system to the rest of the body, impairing such functions as vision, strength, and coordination.1 While we do know what MS is we still don't know why, where and when people contract the disease

Steroids Ever since their introduction into sports in the later 1950's the use of anabolic steroids has been a controversial issue. Much debate has arisen dealing with whether steroids should be allowed for performance enhancement. If you're not familiar with them, The 1994 Merrian-Webster Dictionary defines an anabolic steroid as, any of a group of synthetic hormones sometimes taken by athletes in training to increase temporarily the size of their muscles. However, it's not just the athletes
Blood pressure
Blood pressure
Blood pressure Blood pressure Blood pressure is the force with which your heart pumps blood through the body. Occasional increases in blood pressure levels are not unusual. Hypertension Hypertension is high blood pressure. When heart beats (contracts and relaxes) it pumps out a certain volume of blood. The maximum arterial pressure, measured in mm Hg, determines the systolic reading and the lowest reading of this pressure is called the diastolic pressure. It is widely accepted that a person ha
Introduction
Introduction
Introduction Steroids are hormonal substances, naturally produced in the body by the adrenal glands above the kidney and by reproductive organs. There are many different types of steroids and they all have different effects on the body. Some types of steroids have been found to help destroy some types of cancer cells, and can make more effective. This fact sheet describes steroids, how they are given and some of the side effects that may occur. Common types of steroids that are used in cancer t

Anabolic Steroids
Anabolic Steroids The History of Steroids During the 1930’s scientists discovered that Anabolic Steroids could facilitate the growth of muscle (skeletal) in laboratory animals. This discovery paved the way for steroids to be introduced for human use. Throughout the following decade the trend of steroids became more pronounced, the first documented use of anabolic steroids dates back to World War 2; it is believed Hitler’s German soldiers were administered steroids to increase their confidence an

ANABOLIC STEROIDS
ANABOLIC STEROIDS Since ancient history, many athletes have resorted to performance enhancing aids to give them an edge on their opponents. Greek Olympians used strychnine and hallucinogenic mushrooms to psych up for an event. In 1886 a French cyclist was the first athlete to die from using a performance enhancer, called speedballs, a mixture of cocaine and heroin. In the 1920's, physicians inserted slices of monkey testicles into male athletes to help boost vitality. In the 1930's Aldof Hitler

Anabolic Steroid Use in Sports Drug use has been a part of competitive sport for almost a century. At the first olympics in Athens in 1896, marathon runners drank a mixture of brandy and strychnine to help them on their ways and used opiates to control pain during a race. Use of alcohol was very common in the early years of the twentieth century. It might be argued that the first athletes to use drugs to enhance their performance were, in fact, cheating. We need to remember that drug use is not

What do you think of when one speaks of body building? Most people think of tan, 250 pound, muscular giants who live in the gym, and can't fit into their clothes. However, what most people don't think of is the rigorous diet a body builder must endure to reach the condition that he or she is in when they walk out on stage.

The athletes that do decide to take them are ignorant to the side effects or they just think nothing will happen to them.

Steroids Steroids are a very large class of compounds which occur in all animals. The steroids used by athletes are mostly androgenic steroids: steroids which act like testosterone. The steroids used to treat inflammatory disorders (e.g. prednisolone, cortisone,beclomethasone, budesonide, dexamethasone and dozens of others) are cortico steroids and do not have anabolic effects. Testosterone in the male is produced mainly in the testis, a small amount being produced in the adrenal. It is synthesi
