Sinn Féin Councillor Brendan Curran has cautioned young people in their use of muscle stimulants, some of which are illegal and are not fit for human consumption. Speaking to Newry Times, Curran explained, “I am calling on fitness centres not to promote muscle stimulants. “I have received numerous complaints in recent weeks by family members who have noticed mood swings and a breadth of changes in their children and they are absolutely positive that it is down to the use of steroids. “While the muscle gain is short term, the effects of these steroids last a long time. Steroids can cause damage to your health, companies that manufacture them often use false claims and very little is known about the long term effects some of these substances can have on the body. He added, “That is why some are now illegal and cannot be purchased at gyms or health stores. I would urge young people to abstain from using them and consider the long term damage you could be causing to your body.”
