Warning over steroid poisoning8th April 2009

Last year, more than 2,500 people were treated with many of them having used steroids because they believed it would make their bodies look good. Taking steroids can lead to mood swings, psychological problems and a bad reaction to the drug. Government drug advisors are looking at the problem and could recommend tougher rules on sales and possession of steroids.
