This is my friend who achieved these results by using supplements.
This is a commonly used prohormone that has recently been made illegal.
This shows our nation's obsession with body image. Seen here, the president of the United States is on the front cover of a men's health magazine.

Women vs. Men

What kind of image are women expected to maintain? How is this comparable to men? Many women go to lengths that seem just as extreme as men to get and keep the body they want and nothing harsh is said.

Abercrombie Ad

This is an ad seen right as your walking directly into the popular clothing store Abercrombie. Are men these days expected to look like this? Are ads like this the reason why men are willing to go to extreme lengths to get the body they want?

Holy Shit!

This video shows results only possibly with the use of supplements including prohormones. If these supplements are used correctly, the possible side effects become very minimal. Is this worth it?

Here's a very relevant source

Collins, Rick, and John M. Williams. "Banning Prohormones: The Threat and Legal Issues." Think Muscle N.p., 2004. Web. 28 Oct. 2009

This is a scholarly article written by two lawyers examining the legal issues behind the banning of prohormones. They give a quick history of prohormones and talk about how they work. They also include all of the obstacles the government and private parties had to overcome to make them illegal, which has recently been done. This article seems to be on the side of those wishing to see prohormones stay legal, but it gives very good information for both sides of the argument. All of the topics discussed are very relevant to the issues I am going to discuss. The information provided will be very useful for me when examining exactly why prohormones were made illegal and what supplement companies are doing to combat this.
