First, the Technical Stuff...
BodybuildingPro.com is a natural bodybuilding website. The site was established with the goal to provide a free bodybuilding encyclopedia online to anyone in the world with access to the internet. By doing so, I hope you all take part in the lifestyle of bodybuilding which will very easily change your life for the better. 50,000 unique visitors browse the thousands of pages on the site each month and this number is growing all the time - I trust the majority of these individuals are the natural training athlete, as the website does not really cater to the steroid using athletes since information on Androgenic-Anabolic Steroids is limited on these pages. The views and statements expressed on this website and email communication represent the opinions of the authors and should not be considered scientific conclusions. Neither BodybuildingPro.com nor the authors of this site assume any liability for the information contained herein. Specific medical advice should be obtained from a licensed health care practitioner. Consult your physician before you begin any nutrition, exercise, or dietary supplement program.

My Comments on the Special
By Matt Canning,
Subject: Steroid Special.
I couldn't help but find your special on steroids to be a very poor and
amateurish report. You showed nothing conclusive whatsoever and focussed on cases of abuse and not moderate dosages of adults. You did not present evidence that steroids are unhealthy or unsafe, at least in terms of clinical evidence of the use of anabolic / androgenic steroids and their effects. Simply associating a reported user with negative effects does not imply causality. If this were the case, you may as well make special reports on every other drug, because you could do the same just as thoughtlessly.
You also completely overlooked the millions of healthy athletes currently using anabolic / androgenic steroids for their performance enhancing qualities and as a way to improve health and performance. To correlate a high suicide rate with steroid use is statistical absurdity and I'm led to believe you simply pulled these numbers out of thin air. If there was even a shred of truth to any of that, there would be a demand for plenty of trucks to haul the dead bodies out of my gym on a daily basis.
Having an overweight and unhealthy looking doctor attempt to explain the health hazards of steroid use is also an ironically fitting choice.
Showing an ignorant teenager who does not know in the least what he is doing as a representative of the steroid using population was also sheer ignorance. If you had any respect for unbiased media, you would have contrasted that with some of the people who have used steroids with little to know adverse consequences of their use. I believe Arnold Schwarzenegger has found that the biggest side effect of steroid use was $900,000,000 US.
You should focus your efforts on speaking out against drugs that actually are damaging to society - alcohol maybe. Nicotine is another good example. Although I'm sure you wouldn't do such a thing with your sponsorship. There are far worse things out there then people trying to improve their bodies and increase their strength levels. Of course, the easiest solution is to blame those types of developments on insecurity or steroid use out of jealousy. It must be unforunate to be on the other side of the tracks, and if attacking those who are fit AND healthy is the easiest thing to do - I suppose that works for you. But be aware - you're missing out on the benefits of the health and fitness lifestyle.
There are MANY good reasons why teenagers should not use steroids. You do NOT need to lie to the public to get this point across. It's stupid and an insult to the intelligence of your viewers.
I could go on here. Just some things to think about. Your propaganda is exactly what is wrong with the media today.
