Generation Iron Liver Cancer Steroids

Is the price you pay for massive gains too high?

For a person looking to make waves in the bodybuilding world it takes a few key elements. You must have drive, you must have determination, a fuel that stokes your fire to not only lift consistently, but train like there’s no tomorrow. For many bodybuilders looking to either compete or have the frame of an individual that does, they’ll push their bodies to the absolute limit, risking anything in the hopes of getting gains. For a great deal of these individuals the obvious choice is to switch up their diet, plan out a concise training regimen, and oh yeah, take steroids.


While the anabolic substance is frowned on by athletes from other sporting circles, bodybuilders have a much different view on the performance enhancer. If you want to stand out in a crowd and get noticed, then you’re likely to do anything possible in order to get bigger. This is where steroids come into play. While some will claim that the anabolic substance is perfectly safe, we know the truth.

Though steroids isn’t the worst thing in the world, it’s hard to deny that there isn’t any negative side effects to taking the drug. Besides the hair loss, the shrunken testicles, and possible development of gyno, it’s becoming obvious that steroids are being linked to a bunch of other drawbacks, particularly in cancer cases around the world.

Back over the summer we reported on a bodybuilder having past away from cancer of the liver with the speculation being that the sickness stemmed from steroid abuse. Whether the deceased, Dean Wharmby, was ingesting steroids orally (more dangerous) or injected the substance into his bloodstream, the bottom line is doctors are stating that his liver cancer was caused by his use of steroids. YouTuber Lui Marco touched on the subject in the video below.

When it comes to the lengths you’ll go to make gains, how far is too far? Let us know what you think in the comments and forums. Also, be sure to follow Generation Iron on Facebook and Twitter.
