andractimGenerally, anabolic steroids are affiliated with strength training, lifting weights and basically giving a boost to the performance of athletes. unfortunately, there have been numerous reports of steroid use by high school athletes. Due to the horrible aftermath of taking steroids that can often happen, we must take this seriously. Yet the measurement of the side effects that are harmful relies on the circumstances. The class of the element along with the amount you consume and the length of time you take it, all should be taken into account. Anabolic steroids have bad side effects, this article will review a few of them.
A rather fascinating side effect occurs from steroid use in both sexes. The effect is to produce the development of traits ascribed to the opposite sex. Women begin to display traits of masculinity while the men start to develop more feminine features. The classic side effect for men include breast development, however there is much more to this picture. this manifests in men as a decreased sex drive. The body metabolizes the additional testosterone and leaves estrogen in its wake. It’s this estrogen in the body that leads to the feminine traits. There can be behavioral risks with steroid use such as increased levels of aggression. The underlying cause for this is increased levels of the hormone testosterone. The aggressive behavior is often related to how the steroids cause the over-production of testosterone in the body. However, the greater aggression that can be exhibited has been known to cause legal problems due to the behavioral changes that may occur.
There is also a variety of other ill effects from the use of steroids that is not as widely known. Fundamentally, psychological addiction comes from within. Physical and psychological addictions are never defined there is a myriad of causes and effects. There will be signs of withdrawal which are connected with the ending of the use of steroids.
This makes it symptomatic given the craving and the use of a controlled substance. As well as the painful course of action when you go through the withdrawal process.
It begs the question of why is steroid use so common if the side effects are so well known.
As a precautionary measure, some people may administer the drugs intravenously rather than by mouth. Intravenous injection of the drugs has been shown to reduce the severity of certain side effects. But you should not take that to mean you can avoid these side effects all together. Completely defying common sense, elite athletes often use multiple methods of getting the steroids into their body for maximum effect.
Editor’s note: Jackie Balcom, coordinator of the dental health promotion program at Public Health-Muskegon County, is responsible for educating the public about dental health, running a fluoride rinse program for children in areas without fluoridated water and helping people without dental insurance find low-cost options for care. She was asked a few questions about dental hygiene.
Q: What should a person’s dental hygiene routine include each day?
A: if you are a parent, I’d say be sure to brush your child’s teeth until they are 8 years old, because they really don’t have the coordination to be able to do it thoroughly by themselves until then. Brush for two minutes in the morning before school, and in the evening before bed. the times and length of time go for adults too, and we all know it’s so easy when you’ve had a long day and are already in bed reading, to just turn the light out and go to sleep without brushing. You can always go by the feel of your teeth during the day, too, if they feel fuzzy or furry, brush them thoroughly until they feel slick and slippery. another trick is to just spit out the fluoridated toothpaste instead of rinsing it out, and let the fluoride stay on the teeth a little longer, which will help strengthen the enamel. Parents can model good brushing to their children, and have the child practice brushing in their mouth, while watching the parents brush their own teeth. there are also inexpensive battery operated brushes that children enjoy to make brushing more fun.
Q: if you are in a situation where you can’t brush your teeth after eating, what should you do? does chewing sugar-free gum help?
A: yes, chewing sugar-free gum can help especially if you have food stuck on the chewing surfaces of your teeth. Drinking water can rinse out particles. we teach children to go to the drinking fountain and swish the water around and then swallow it. and adding carrots, celery or apples to a child’s lunchbox can help clean the teeth off after eating also by the friction on the teeth and the crunchiness.
Q. Do electric toothbrushes work better than the old-fashioned kind? is the difference enough to justify the extra expense?
A: yes, the benefit of an electric toothbrush is that you just hold it in place and let it do the work vibrating the toothpaste between the teeth and the food and plaque off. however, just like manual (hand) brushing, you have to place the bristles at the gum line where they will create the best result, and with children, we use the “scrub brush” technique which is just scrubbing all over the teeth and making sure every tooth is cleaned. Also, you have to actually do the work with either type of brush — it doesn’t do any good sitting on the sink or in the closet. one helpful hint is to only use a tiny pea sized bit of paste on the brush for an adult, and just a smear of toothpaste on a child’s brush.
I have bought many different kinds of electric toothbrushes for family members over the years, and everyone likes something different. I go between a manual toothbrush and an electric toothbrush, so I think it’s just personal preference. if your dental professional tells you that you need to do a better job brushing, an electric toothbrush might help.
Q:. why is flossing important? is using mouthwash a substitute for people who don’t like it?
A: Flossing is important to be able to clean in between teeth that are tight against each other where toothbrush bristles cannot get. Most people try to floss but don’t feel like they are very successful. You can take a 12-inch piece of floss and tie it in a circle and then work it in between your teeth up and down the sides of the teeth, and move around to a clean area of floss and do it again. this can work better than winding it around your fingers and cutting off the circulation in your fingers. Rinsing is another thing you can do to help remove food debris, but you really need some kind of friction or rubbing against the teeth, such as brushing and flossing, to take the plaque off.

The most effect permanent hair removal available.How many Treatments Does it take? many hairs will be eliminated with only one treatment, but some will need two or more treatments to achieve permanency. Electrolysis involves a series of treatments over a period of 1-3 months. the overall length of time depends on the amount of hair, its coarseness, the cause of the excess hair, but once the dermal papilla has been eliminated, the hair is dead and will not grow again.is Electrolysis Painful? Electrolysis rarely causes discomfort. If it does, adjustments can be made to the machine which will totally eliminate any sensation (although the length of the treatment will be increased proportionately). the sensation is less than in tweezing. Most patients are surprised as they expect to feel much more. Some patients even relax enough to fall asleep.is it Hard or Painful to Insert the Needle? no, the insertion of the electrolysis probe is much easier and far less intimidating than most people believe. the “needle” is actually a blunt-ended, highly flexible probe which never pierces the skin. There is no blood (or pain) involved. it slides effortlessly down a pre-existing shaft, like a hand into a glove. Read more
