I am sorry, but this is simply false. The FDA has approved the use of various steroids because they assist in the healing process and/or strengthen the bodies ability to respond to certain threats. Please review the multiple steroids currently in the Physicians Desk Reference.
Like all perscription drugs, however, if they are abused they can damage your health.
