Increase in youth steroid deaths in Domincan Republic
TRANSLATED FROM SPANISH USING GOOGLE TRANSLATOR By Julio Reyes,  Washington, DC. The Dominican Republic has become a nation that does not care about plight of some young people who are recruited by so-called independent coaches.  Baseball and fatalities are increasing every day in some cases called programs they operate, where young people fall dead from a heart attack or cardiac arrest taking his life in an explosive no time to anything, not the executive branch headed by His Excellency Constitutional President of the Republic Danilo Medina, has ordered a thorough investigation, or much less the Attorney General Francisco Dominguez Brito presiding, has taken the initiative although it is an open secret in the community that the deaths of these young people have been produced by excessive consumption of steroids. Steroid abuse can also develop infective endocarditis, a disease bacterial causes a potentially fatal inflammation of the inner lining of the heart. In addition, bacterial infections can cause pain and abscess formation at sites of injection. From what he could see past the young Juan Manuel Matos, who is the latest victim of the group of young people looking for the dream of the majors in the city Nizao Peravia province, if it appears that steroids were applied substances in your body. In your community understand that excessive use of steroids ended his life. Relatives and friends of the deceased have made them the calls on the authorities to investigate the death and the cause of the decline that occurred in the same pitch. According to reports Matos meet 16 years next May, which made it eligible for a contract this year because at that age you can sign from 02 July for the baseball Major League Baseball in the United States. Matos hard minutes before arriving at the ball park as the coach and other companions are to begin their practice routines and he was part of the program that develops the ballpark installation of the municipality of Sabana de Palenque, San Christopher. One of his companion narrated that Juan Manuel fell dizzy after walking from the third base to the mound around 8:30 in the morning. The mate Juan Manuel, Gabriel Garcia said the young deceased had been injected with a substance that in its opinion is complex B. The increase in deaths in the field of training of these coaches or agents independent formerly known as hustlers, the figure rose to four in the city only Nizao in one year and at least two months, not counting those who have died in the province of San Pedro de Macoris, and its municipalities, Consuelo, Quisqueya, and community capital municipality, where have died several talents and worst still at a young age without anyone open an investigation into the case. A relevant point is that these young players are from poor families, who can not afford to afford a lawyer and are limited to bringing to justice those responsible for committing these types of abuse and as the poor not entitled to anything in this country where impunity saved as happens with corrupt politicians from the three major parties (PRSC, PRD and PLD), which are objects of prosecution and courts when they are downloaded. REPORTING NIDA, USA The National Drug Institute of the United States (National Institute on Drug) in the United States known as NIDA, an organization that conducted a series of reports investigations indicated in their reports of some cases and small studies indicate that steroids Anabolic used in high doses, increase irritability and aggression. Research also indicate that some users might turn to other drugs to alleviate some negative effects anabolic steroids. In the United States can legally buy supplements like tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) and androstenedione (street name “Andro”) without prescription through many commercial sources including health food stores. Pies, supplements steroids can become testosterone or a similar compound. Little is known about the side effects of steroidal supplements, but strong amounts of these compounds substantially increased testosterone levels in the body, then it is likely that produce the same side effects as anabolic steroids. With the enactment in the 2004 amendments to the Controlled Substances Act, the purchase of these supplements are made illegal, with the notable exception of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). Common abuse Steroids Oral steroids: Anadrol (oxymetholone) Oxandrin (oxandrolone) Dianabol(Methandrostenolone) Winstrol (Stanozolol) Steroids inyectables.Deca-Durabolin (decanoatenandrolone) Durabolin (nandrolone phenylpropionate) Depo-Testosterone (testosterone cipionate) Equipoise (boldenone undecylenate) tetrahydrogestrinone (THG). One of the main reasons given as the cause of the abuse of steroids is to improve the performance in sports. Although procedures are already being used to detect the use of so discourage steroid abuse among professional and Olympic athletes, constantly new designer drugs are passing undetected and that put athletes willing to cheating step beyond detection efforts. However, this dynamic may be to change if the save process urine and blood for testing them again a future date it becomes the norm. The high probability of eventually being able to detect the new designer steroids, once the technology exists, besides the fear of retroactive sanctions, they athletes should give reason to stop and think before using these drugs. Another reason given for taking steroids is to increase muscle and reduce body fat. Some anabolic steroids are taken orally, others are injected intramuscularly, and other come in ointments (gels) or creams that are rubbed into the skin. Use “cyclical” in “lots” and “pyramids” Steroids are often abused in patterns called “cycling”, which means that users take multiple doses of steroids over a specific period of time, longer take them for a period and then start again. Users often also mix several different types of steroids in a process called “stacking.” By “stacking” drugs, what is typically steroid abusers do is to take two or more anabolic steroids different, mixing oral and / or injectable, and sometimes include compounds designed for veterinary use. Abusers think that the different steroids interact to produce a greater effect on the muscles than would be achieved if each drug taken separately, a theory that has not been scientifically proven. Another way of abusing steroids is taking them in a “pyramid”. In this process, the users slowly increase the steroid abuse (increasing the number of steroids taking or the dose and frequency of one or more steroids used together), reaching a peak about half of the cycle and then gradually decreasing the dose until the end of the cycle. Users take doses in a pyramid in cycles of 6-12 weeks. At the beginning of the cycle, start with low doses of drugs “stacked” and are slowly increasing the dose. In the second half of the cycle, the dose was reduced gradually to zero. Sometimes followed by a second cycle in which continues to train but without drugs. The Abusers believe that taking drugs in the form of pyramiding allows the body time to adapt to the higher doses and the cycle allows recovery without drugs hormonal system. When a child or adolescent takes anabolic steroids, the resulting artificially high levels of sex hormones can send signal the bones to stop growing earlier than normally would have done. Cardiovascular System The steroid abuse has been associated with cardiovascular diseases, including attacks heart and brain, even in athletes younger than 30 years. Steroids contribute to the development of cardiovascular diseases partly by changing the levels of lipoproteins that carry blood cholesterol. Steroids, particularly the oral types, increase the level of low density lipoprotein (LDL, for its acronym in English) and decrease the level of high density lipoprotein (HDL, for their acronym in English). High levels of LDL and low HDL levels increase the risk of atherosclerosis, a condition in which fatty substances are deposited inside arteries and disrupt blood flow. If the blood does not reach the heart, the result can be a heart attack. If the blood does not reach the brain, the result may be a stroke or stroke. Steroids also increase the risk of blood clots in the vessels blood, which can disrupt blood flow and damaging the heart muscle so that not pump blood efficiently. LIVER AND SKIN The steroid abuse has been associated with liver tumors and a rare condition called peliosis hepatis, in which blood-filled cysts form in the liver. Sometimes both tumors and the cysts can rupture, causing internal bleeding. Abuse of steroids can cause acne, cysts, and oily hair and skin. Infections: Many abusers who inject anabolic steroids use techniques do not sterile injecting, or share contaminated needles with other abusers. In addition, some steroid preparations are manufactured illegally under nonsterile conditions. These factors put steroid abusers at risk for viral infections potentially deadly as HIV and hepatitis B and C. http://eficienciatv.com/disp.noticia.aspx?id=4849&bck=main#.UbH3b408AFQ.email
