Exercise improves the male bodys response to insulin. An exercise program must be started only with the advice of a physician to avoid unnecessary impediments.
In addition to steroid use, more than one-third of boys and one-fifth of girls in the study said they had used protein powder or shakes to gain muscle mass, and between five and 10 percent used non-steroid muscle-enhancing substances, such as creatine. Researchers said a more muscular body ideal in the media may be one factor driving teens to do anything possible to get toned, as well as pressure to perform in sports.
During the school year, those students completed a survey on food and weight-related behaviors, including activities tied to muscle gain. The majority of kids surveyed were poor or middle-class. Almost all of them had engaged in at least one muscle-building activity in the past year, most often working out more to get stronger.
But up to one-third of kids and teens used what the researchers deemed to be unhealthy means to gain muscle mass, including taking steroids and other muscle-building substances or overdoing it on protein shakes, dieting and weight-lifting. Student-athletes were more likely than their peers to use most methods of muscle-building.
Steroid use, however, was equally common among athletes and non-athletes. According to findings published Monday in the journal Pediatrics, Asian students were three to four times more likely to have used steroids in the past year than white students.
Most Asians in the study were Hmong, lead researcher Marla Eisenberg from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and her colleagues noted. Anabolic steroids are synthetic versions of testosterone, the male sex hormone. In those cases, steroids can cause mood swings - sometimes known as roid rage - and for adolescents, stunted growth and accelerated puberty.
Anabolic steroids have become pervasive in professional sports, including baseball, football and boxing. Experts have worried that the drive to get ahead of competitors at any cost could trickle down to college and high school athletes, as well.
Goldberg said getting enough protein through food, eating breakfast and avoiding muscle toxins like alcohol and marijuana can all help young athletes get stronger without shakes or supplements.Introduction to Sociology/Deviance.
