HIV patients take steroids to prevent muscle wasting. I don't think there is anything wrong with taking juice as long as you are competing in a competition where it is accepted - yes Marion Jones shouldn't have been in the Olympics.
    The Arnold Pro plus many, many more. The IFBB while not condoning steroids does not test for it either.

    Now while HIV patients take it for muscle wasting the amount they take is far less than what a Pro BB would take that, lets say a Pro at the sabove mentioned Arnold Pro, so your analogy is mute.
    There is a difference between taking steroids and abusing them, this is where I think you are confused.
    So when you say "I don't think there is anything wrong with taking juice as long as you are competing in a competition where it is accepted" are you aware of the long term effects and what exactly they take to compete in these Pro shows, let me tell you it's not a healthy state to be in.

    Can you really go to hospital for a multivitamin?

    I thought if you took too much your body just expels the excess through your normal waste functions.

    This is true for a lot of the compounds in mutivitamins but not all - some metals etc that are put in multis can actually only be used by certain processes in the body and don't get removed via waste, hence you can build up toxic levels of them in the blood if you take too many. Also anything taken in excess can become toxic - even water. If the body doesn't have a mechanism for removing it faster than you put it in then it can kill you.

    Pre contest diets are also unhealthy and can lead to long term damage. But I wouldn't recommend anybody do that or gear for 10yrs straight.

    Its personal choice whether you want to jab yourself with roids, or snort a line of coke, smoke that ciggie or eat that big mac. They will all harm you in some way - some are just more socially accepted.

    Who mentioned Pre Contest diets? I though we were talking about 'roids' not diets. The amount of gear needed to even get remotely close to competing in a comp of that nature is itself not very healthy let alone the pre-contest regime of thyroid hormones, 'roids, gh and diuretics.

    Medical use is fine but people that dont need it shouldnt take it. Im anti drug other than alcohol that is. Supporting drug use is supporting organised crime.

    I will probably get crap for saying that but thats what i think anyway.

    Strictly for health, id say absolutely not! Dorian Yates once said "if your not a competitive bodybuilder you have no business taking them" take from that what you will.
