The use of steroids is commonly observed in bodybuilders, but much to our surprise, it was found to be common amongst the military too.
As per a latest research, steroid usage has surged to an unbelievable level in marines and army, in particular.
There is no denying in the fact that men in marines and army need miraculous power to fight and survive, and considering the Middle East conflicts, the need to keep themselves in a surviving state seems continuous.
It’s been almost two decades for the Unites States to engage into an endless war with the Middle East.
Like any other war, this war too, has resulted in swallowing the lives of many soldiers with no hope of ending in the near future.
This certainly demands the soldiers to fight a battle and survive in an alien land.
Apparently, the constant misery in their lives has triggered towards the unconventional means of survival- the usage of steroids in order to turn bigger and powerful.
This issue has been greatly covered by the media lately.
The findings of a report may sound surprising to most of us that the officials are actually financing and supporting their soldiers with their steroid use.
An increasing trend – alarming indeed:
The news pertaining to the increasing use of steroids emerged when some military soldiers were tested for drug use.
The men belonged to the fourth Army Battalion and were suspected to be involved in using illicit steroids.
The report was initially made by a detective after taking an interview from a soldier, and was later covered by the media.
The findings unveiled that the use of illicit drug was common amongst the military soldiers.
Interestingly, the results were opposed by their leader who voiced in favor of his men taking supplements, and not steroids.
