Don't Take Steroids
For Yourself and for Others:
Why Shouldn't You Take Steroids?
Not only do steroids affect professional sports players, but it also hurts those around us. Athletes like Alex Rodriquez and Lance Armstrong are role models to many children. If these people see their role models taking steroids, they'll think, why can't I do this? Instead, young athletes should see professional sports players playing clean and fair, therefore influencing them to do the same. So, don't take steroids, and spread, the word, because this topic is greatly underrated and people need to shed some light on this current situation.
A-Rod played for the New York Yankees; suspended for 211 games for using performance-enhancing drugs, or PEDs.

The cyclist, seen in the 2000 Olympic Games and The Tour de France, was stripped of all of his medals when caught using PEDs.
