In a 2014 YouTube video, Piana admitted he used steroids over the course of 25 years, And specifically stated that everyone should be aware that using steroids will do damage to their body, but also said that he's wiliing to take those chances. In another video in 2016 he backed up his decision but advising viewers not to use the drugs : "If you have the choice to do steroids or stay natural, stay natural. There's no reason to do steroids. You're only hurting your body and hurting yourself." He then clarified that professional bodybuilders have no such choice. 
Erica Cordie is an interesting addition to this list, as she has not competed nearly as much as many of the other women. Instead, she has always viewed modelling as her main reason for working out and staying fit. Good for her, I really don’t care for her reasons, she can stay fit in order to work for the North Koreans, I’ll still think she’s gorgeous. She first took up weightlifting and bodybuilding after a skiing accident which caused her serious damage to her knee. Her original training regimen was simply to rehabilitate her leg, but it turned into a lifelong hobby. Wow, eyes.
