So real evidence of 1 person having life long bad side effects means that it will happen to everyone taking steroids?

Sensationalism (or as i call it crap journalism)

If something that bad happens to you, you must have a prior disposition for acne of skin problems. And to look built like that, you need to take massive doses of juice, not to mention the right diet. The danger of steroids is actually exagerrated.

calling it exagerrated and sensationalism is very ignorant.

just one of many articles that you can access freely over the internet, detailing the link between hormones and acne.

I remember a guy in my university residence who had a lot of scars because of acne on his back and chest. He was also bulky as he was also a heavy gymmer.

This article explains quite clearly why he had those scars on his back and chest.

I don't doubt steroids have varied side effects in some, but I also believe that its somewhat exaggerated to a large extent - those pictures looks photoshopped!

No, its ignorant in saying that everyone who takes steroids will have life long bad acne/scarring.

Its like an article showing that a skydiver died because his parachute failed to open, and then everyone saying "Oh, its going to happen to every single person who skydives"

Showing one extremely bad case and saying that its the danger of steroids is like showing one extremely bad case of a drunk driving accident and then telling everyone not to drink at all because it WILL happen to them.
