Anabolic Steroids Safer than Smoking says Lancet


A recent study by The Lancet, one of the world's leading medical
journals, concluded that anabolic steroid 'abuse' is less harmful than most
other drugs, including alcohol and tobacco.

The study ranked the 20 most popular legal and illegal drugs
by the harm they do to the individual and society. Predictably,
heroin and cocaine topped the list, followed by alcohol and tobacco
(5th and 9th place, respectively). Anabolic steroids were in 16th place,
barely more dangerous than GHB and Khat.
