The Story: In February 2005 Canseco released his autobiography and steroid tell-all, Juiced , Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big. In it he described himself as 'the chemist' having experimented on himself for years. He claimed to have educated and personally injected many players including Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Juan Gonzalez, Ivan Rodriguez, and Jason Giambi. In his second book, Vindicated , Canseco added Magglio Ordonez to the list of players he had educated and injected with steroids. He also said he introduced Alex Rodriguez to a trainer/PED supplier after Rodriguez had asked where he could get steroids.

Jeff Bagwell never popped up on any list nor was he mentioned in any of Jose Canseco's books, but a cloud of doubt hovers over his career. For what ever reason, Hall of Fame voters hold his friendship with Ken Caminiti against him and the fact that he played for a known steroid hotbed of an organization for his entire career. Bagwell put up monster numbers and played a superb first base (.993 Fielding %) for most of his time in Houston. Bagwell made history during the 1994 strike-shortened season. He became the first National Leaguer to finish first or second in batting average, home runs, RBI, and runs scored since Willie Mays in 1955. Bags is also one of four infielders (Ian Kinsler, Alfonso Soriano, and Howard Johnson) in MLB history who have had multiple 30/30 seasons as of 2011. Many point to his muscular physique during his playing days, his sudden breakdown and the way he looks after retiring as tell-tale signs that he was a juicer. He's the only true question mark on this list. No evidence, just speculation.

Producers of gay porn provide their ‘actors’ with the illegal drugs in the effort to increase the value of their videos. However, some gay producers are becoming more bold and making scouting for future talent at local bodybuilding/physique shows. Bodybuilders are oftentimes willing to work in this segment of the sex industry due to the high costs associated with constant steroid use. In fact, many straight bodybuilders are willing to engage in gay sex acts; servicing the demands of some wealthy gay males in exchange for even higher compensation. Another well-known bodybuilder — Andy Bick (aka Zebr Atlas) has posted a vast quantity of content through the gay porn industry and available in the public domain.

A very typical case of severe cholestasis due to anabolic steroid use.  Because the steroids were being used without medical supervision, the dose and actual duration of use of each preparation was unclear, but cholestasis usually arises within 4 to 12 weeks of starting a C-17 alkylated androgenic steroid.  The jaundice can be severe and prolonged and accompanied by severe pruritus and marked weight loss.  The serum enzymes are typically minimally elevated except for a short period immediately after stopping therapy.  The pattern of enzyme elevations can be hepatocellular, cholestatic or mixed.  Liver biopsy shows a “bland” cholestasis with minimal inflammation and hepatocellular necrosis.  Ma Huang has also been implicated in cases of drug induced liver injury, but is associated with an acute hepatocellular pattern of injury.

Not shortly after Roger Maris record was broken, another baseball player, Jason Giambi and various other athletes were either suspected of, or proven to have, taken anabolic steroids. Again, Congress convened a hearing, and just as they did the first time in 1990, they did not determine that steroids were a danger, but rather that the danger was more in protecting professional sports organizations. The updated statute has been updated to proscribe pro-hormones also The definition of an anabolic steroid as defined currently in the United States under (41)(A) is that "anabolic steroid" means any drug or hormonal substance, chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone (other than estrogens , progestins, corticosteroids, and dehydroepiandrosterone (7).
