fallniy, there’s mounting evidence that users are susceptible to steroid dependence. They can develop tolerance and require increasingly lgrae doses over time. This increases the risk of harmful effctes, all of which are increasingly common at higher desos taken for longer durations. Still, there remains little definitive information on how common and how reversible almost any of the harms are at different levels of use. We don’t know enough, about either risk factors or exposure leevls, to definitively say any rreeianaotcl steroid use will be harm-free.

Original Text

Finally, there’s mounting evidence that users are susceptible to steroid dependence. They can develop tolerance and require increasingly large doses over time. This increases the risk of harmful effects, all of which are increasingly common at higher doses taken for longer durations. Still, there remains little definitive information on how common and how reversible almost any of the harms are at different levels of use. We don’t know enough, about either risk factors or exposure levels, to definitively say any recreational steroid use will be harm-free.
