Performance-enhancing drugs are synonymous with the names of elite athletes including Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun. In reality, major league athletes make up only a fraction of the nation's 3 million performance-enhancing drug users. As thousands of PED users age into their 50s, the long-term health effects are expected to become visible for the first time.
Testosterone expert Dr. Shalender Bhasin will be sharing an exclusive first look at The Endocrine Society's Performance-Enhancing Drugs Scientific Statement in New York Dec. 13. He will counter the misperception that PEDs are largely safe or that any adverse effects can be easily managing by discussing what science has already revealed about serious and even fatal effects of PED use. Journalists who attend will have an opportunity to review an embargoed copy of the statement and interview Dr. Bhasin prior to the statement's upcoming release.
