Teenagers Using Hormones And Dietary Supplements To Good Physique

A research report in the journal Pediatrics shows that more than 10,000 teenagers in US use hormones and dietary //supplements to have a desired physique. The report also brings to light importance these young people attach to a favorable body image

Anabolic steroids have the most serious health effects, including testicular atrophy, impotence, liver and kidney damage, an increased risk for heart disease, and the widely reported “’roid rage” (uncontrolled aggression). The safety of creatine, DHEA, and other products purported to increase muscle mass and tone has been questioned and isn’t well known.

The survey, of adolescents aged 12 to 18, was done in 1999 as part of the Growing Up Today Study (GUTS), which involves children of nurses enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study based at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. GUTS was co-founded by Field and Dr. Graham Colditz and colleagues of Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health.

The findings also indicate that the media have a strong influence on adolescent supplement use and that body image con
