The negative effects anabolic steroid abuse has on the human body can be devastating. They range from a minor case of oily skin to major long-term health complications, and potentially death. Steroids have a range of side effects, or changes experienced by the mind and body of a user.

These changes fit into three basic categories:
1. Internal changes, like high blood pressure or out-of-range liver values
2. More private or personal changes, like testicular atrophy (significant shrinking of the testicles)
3. Noticeable external changes, like severe acne or increased aggression

If you suspect your child, students, or friends are using anabolic steroids, you can look for a variety of short-term side effects that appear as symptoms – like visible changes in appearance, mood and behavior. Educating yourself about the signs of steroid abuse can help you identify symptoms before it’s too late.

Physical Changes
Physical changes may be the most recognizable difference because the novice user cannot easily conceal these short-term symptoms.

  • Unusually fast muscle growth

  • Unusually greasy hair or oily skin (often with stretch marks on the inner joints)

  • Small red or purplish acne, including breakouts on the shoulders and back

  • Gynocomastia, the abnormally excessive development of the breast tissue in males

Why Shredderbuilt Chooses to Remain Drug Free
     People have asked us why does having a drug tested show means so much to us? Isn't it a personal choice? Yes, we live in America and we respect people's right to choose. However, when we look in our grandson’s eyes and read the statistics below we know that it isn't just because Dave has spent his life being a drug free professional athletes himself, its far more than that. This is a passion we feel that drives us deep in our souls. We believe strongly that we need to provide opportunity, an avenue for those who wish to remain drug free to do so. We need to give kids role models to look up who are drug free if there is any hope of them remaining drug free themselves. If not us, then who?  We’ve received countless emails across the country supporting our efforts. Unfortunately, we’ve also heard many stories of tragedies and thankful heard we’ve stories of tragedies averted because loved ones recognized the signs listed above and took action in time. So while some think our insistence on drug testing is "not necessary" that is ok. There is room for all of us in the sport that we love, every show makes our community bigger and better by hopefully exposing it to new people. As for the Shredderbuilt family will continue to grow, develop and provide opportunities for natural athletes we've been doing it for 19 years and we'll do it for as many years as we possibly can!
