Growing number of Asian teens using steroids20th July 2009
Charity and drug workers have warned that the number of young Asian men using steroids to enhance their bodies has increased.
A needle exchange co-ordinator in Bradford said the proportion of Asian men visiting the centre had increased from 5% to around 25-30%. Barry Langleyman, a specialist harm reduction worker at the Bridge charity in Bradford said: "They see it as an easy fix, and they won't have to put as much effort into their training. It does increase their performance in the gyms - they can lift bigger weights, their stamina increases and endurance."
