Infographic: Steroid Abuse in HS and College Athletes

High school and college students are young and impressionable. Driven by concern about their body image or inspired by mainstream athletes, they start taking steroids — or anabolic steroids in particular — that mimic testosterone hormones and their effects. It helps them build strength and endurance, which they require to boost their performance in various sports. 

What starts off as a simple step to increase physical endurance ends up in a mess, with harmful side-effects such as mood swings, sleeping disorders, paranoia and fertility issues. Yet, steroid abuse is rampant in the locker rooms even though they were designated as a controlled substance by the U.S. government in 1990. This infographic aims to educate the masses about the perils of steroid abuse in high school and college athletes with the help of some important facts and figures.
