by saying "its the law of nature" removes one from any responsibility of ones actions. It isn't just about exploitation or a deeper meaning or freedom. we are no longer part of the food chain, we've been able to remove ourselves completely. its the fact that we are the most intelligent and conscience beings on this planet. We are not only the most evolved in intelligence but also in spirituality. we should know better than to treat the world and it occupants like this. Especially in this day in age where information is at a press of a button. we should all be ashamed.
This is the scenario: a guy, say age 21, becomes serious about gaining muscle. He’s 5′ 10″, 7″ wrists, 9″ ankles, average genetics for muscle size-and-proportioned. He’s played sports, but never done more than an occasional resistance workout. Now, he begins a good training-eating-and-resting program. With his genetics, he has the potential for naturally gaining 45 pounds of lean mass if he stays consistent with progressive training/proper eating for a continuous 3 to 4 years.
But, about three months after beginning his training, he starts taking steroids. He does three steroid cycles in the following 18 months, and includes proper post-cycle therapy. That entire time, he’s continuing to consistently train and eat properly. Before the end of two years, he’s gained 45 pounds of lean mass (which with steroids, by the way, is not necessarily typical but neither improbable). At that point, he permanently quits using steroids, but he does continue properly training and eating for another two years. At the end of four years, he carries the same 45 pounds of lean mass.
