The days when only bodybuilders and athletes used steroids are over! Now some of your favorite celebrities are “juicing up” on steroids (HGH).
In a a recent news scandal it is alleged that
“ Blige, 50 Cent, Timbaland and Wyclef Jean all allegedlyhad steroids or HGH sent to Long Island chiropractor Michael Diamond, an anti-aging consultant at the Clay Gym in Chelsea. Diamond, who has not been accused of wrongdoing, could not be reached. (credit)”
In less recent news there have been other celebrities such as Sylvester Stallone, Danny Bonaduce, and Arnold Schwarzenegger on steroids. “ Sylvester Stallone was detained by Australian customs agents, who accused him of having 48 vials of HGH stuffed in his luggage (credit).”
Why would our most beloved stars turn to steroids? It has been proven over the years that steroids can have some very negative affects the body. Not only can they give you breasts (for men), they can also change the structure of your skull; making you look like a neanderthal.
NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF HGH
”Problems associated with HGH are like many other hormones in the human body. You can have too much, or you can have to little. If there is to much HGH in the blood, it is called Excessive Growth Hormone, also known as acromegaly or pituitary gigantism. This disease is essentially a benign adenomas or tumor that grows on the cells of the anterior pituitary.
As it grows, it produces more and more Growth Hormone. Symptoms will manifest as the tumor becomes large enough to cause headaches or impairs one’s vision due to pressure on the optic nerve. If untreated, Excessive Growth Hormone will cause thickening of the bones, particularly the jaw-bone, fingers and toes. The treatment for Excessive Growth Hormone due to secreting tumor is the removal of the tumor. In some cases, a treatment of focused radiation can be used to shrink the tumor.A misconception brought on by the media is that HGH Excess because of Gigantism is a side effect of using growth hormone in a healthy body. It is possible to develop Gigantism in an adolescent that has not yet reached puberty. Gigantism or acromegaly is a disease that is essentially a benign adenomas or tumor that grows on the cells of the anterior pituitary. As it grows, it produces more and more growth hormone, causing HGH Excess.It is important to understand that “HGH producing” supplements have not been available for very long and the long-term effects of using these products are unknown. Mary Lee Vance of the University of Virginia said in an editorial, “Because there are so many unanswered questions about the use of growth hormone in the elderly and in adults with growth hormone deficiency, its general use now or in the immediate future is not justified.”
There are many products available, HGH by prescription and “HGH producing” supplements that are available over the counter. Caution should always be taken; seek a doctor’s advice before administering growth hormone or “HGH producing supplements” to ensure all of your options are considered (credit).”
