I just wanted to point out that "roid rage" is an urban myth. There have actually been tests done and no evidence of roid rage was found. OTOH, 'roids do have a significant antidepressant effect.

That said, the people who do take anabolic steroids are often people who are willing to commit crimes or are highly competitive and physical. Give those people a sense of well-being and, well, things can go wrong.

yorik - sorry, but your post is nonsense.

Steroid abuse leads to a big temper and a little todger.

The End.

A guy I knew in HS abused steroids for a brief spell. When he stopped, his anger management problems stopped as well.

Believe whatever propaganda you want, but 'roid rage is a still a myth. Studies have shown the people who supposedly get 'roid rage were antisocial to begin with. Period.

I've known a lot of bodybuilders and none of them exhibited any rage. Not a single one.

Another couple myths: steroids are not injected into a vein (as described on Southpark.) And although the family jewels will shrink, they re-enlarge upon cessation.

I'm just tired of anabolic steroids being demonized like heroin or crystal meth. Yes, they can be abused, but so can oxycodone.

As for sports, the main thing wrong with steroids is simply cheating. Steroid use is against the rules, so it's just cheating.

Er... even if it were a myth, it would be a prevalent myth, so it works in the context of a hypothetical video game in a comic strip.

("I know some bodybuilders and they're nice" is actually not very convincing to me. Maybe link some of those studies you're talking about?)

I thought the comic was really funny, btw. Good job Nitro and Snaggy.

Which studies were these, then?

A cursory wander round PubMed shows that the correlation between steroid abuse and aggressive/violent behaviour is beyond doubt. It is only the 'how and why' of the link that needs further exploration.

Simply saying "they were antisocial to begin with" is a willful mis-reading of the available evidence.

Anabolic Steroid abuse and mental disorder

Criminality among individuals testing positive for AAS

AAS and aggression:studies using animal models

Anabolic steroids and the mind

A family member was prescribed steroids for medical reasons, and the warnings on the package included sudden mood swings.

We found those warnings to be justified.
