Best Answer

Athletes use steroids to bulk up fast!! It's an amazing drug for that! But it is harmful to some! It's causes boils and acne on some people. Steroids is a testerone enhancement. Known to cause cancer. A lot of people use them but it's a gamble. When you hit your fifties it's almost impossible to get big as a man in his 20 or 30s. Aging actors who play action movies will not admit they do enhancing drugs, try getting that big! It would take forever. It's a controlled drug so all I see here is people saying it's illegal! We know that! Answer the question ! Do not prostheses!

Why shouldn't athletes be using steroids?

First of all it would give an unfair advantage to the players who use the steroids, and it would encourage everyone to use them in order to "keep up." It would also encourage younger athletes to take them and steroids are especially harmful to bodies that are not fully developed. In my opinion the most important reason is that athletes who use natural ability and hard work should always be observed as the best athletes, not who can take the most steroids to become the best. Do you really want steroids to be legal in the Olympics? We would not know who the best athletes in the world truly are.
