When they say Arnolds (steroid), what they really mean is anabolic steroid. This is a man-made chemical that has similar effects to testosterone (a natural sex hormone and building block for many body building goals, including muscle gain and fat loss).

In a controlled study, group of men were given doses of anabolic steroids for an extended period; not a single dose, but doses of relatively high composure, very far beyond the limit of medical purpose.
What would you think the results are likely to be; are they all dead? Did they display any health related side-effects; did they all turn into monsters of pure hatred and violence in nature?
