( I get the feeling these anonymous high school steroid surveys get as many honest answers as ones asking guys how big their dicks are or how long they last in bed. )

The threat of steroids, or appearance and performance enhancing drugs, use by high school students is soaring. Most experts agree that about one million U.S. high school students-have used anabolic steroids. And the usage rate is on the rise.

In 1993, one in 45 high school students used anabolic steroids. By 1999, the number was one in 27. Today, one in 16 high school students admits to using anabolic steroids. More than one in 20 high school girls already used anabolic steroids and the number continues to increase. The median age for first time users is 15.

According to Dr. Harrison Pope of Harvard University, “the unique thing about steroids is that a trained eye can spot a user when they are walking in the door.”
