Everybody strives to be a winner, and on the playing field, most athletes do this by exercising and eating right.

In Steroids, students examine the use of illegal anabolic steroids and steroidal supplements, profiling case studies that provide a comprehensive overview of the detrimental effects these drugs can have. Vivid animations and expert testimony shed light on what is happening to the mind and body of a steroid user, whose quest to look healthier and more fit ends up doing just the opposite.

Speakers include young athletes who share their views on "competing clean" without chemical enhancements as well as sports medicine doctors who explain the adverse physical effects of misusing performance drugs. Viewers learn the dangers involved in abusing steroids, stimulants, diuretics and other drugs. Interviews with student athletes emphasize that using drugs to win at sports is the same as cheating. The message of this program is clear: sports competitions are meant to be fun, healthy and drug-free.
