How do steroids boost athletic performance?
« on: 09/07/2008 09:52:03 »
Mrinal Shah asked the Naked Scientists:

Doping has been a very big issue with several sports these days.

What do these steroids essentially do to one's body? Is it possible to get some of these ingredients in one's regular diet and if so would that also disqualify a competitor if there are trace amounts of a steroid found?

What do you think?

Anabolic steroids are a type of hormone which increase protein synthesis inside cells, particularly the muscles.
