Healthy fitness guru joins doctors, educators, coaches, event organizers, and others in urging young people to do things old-fashioned way…with diet and exercise
In an alarming trend that has continued to grow since early 1990's, government and university studies show that as many as 5% of high school girls and 7% percent of middle-school girls admit that they've tried anabolic steroids at least once. While some analyses attribute increase to girls' rising participation in sports, it is also clear that "plenty of girls and boys are using steroids to look toned and muscular without having to work out or watch what they eat," reports healthy fitness "guru" Anthony Ellis.
"Our society is hooked on 'magic pill' concept and these young people are getting hooked on steroids," says Ellis. Children as young as nine covet sexy bodies of their fit-and-trim celebrity, rock star, and athletic idols, "but they don't want to do work," he explains.
Gender Bender Ellis notes that most young girls are completely unaware that steroid use will cause physical changes like an increase in facial hair, a deepening of voice, severe acne, and smaller breasts, as well as psychological changes including paranoia, hallucinations and angry outbursts known as 'Roid Rage.
"Girls are risking their lives taking illegal steroids to make themselves feminine and they end up more masculine than ever," says Ellis. "They're experimenting with same testosterone pills, shots and creams that professional baseball players who are three times their size and twice their age are using. The risks are terrifying and results aren't much better."
Seeing is Believing Ellis, a self-proclaimed "average guy who was fed up with being a skinny, 135 pound weakling," transformed his own life with all-natural, muscle gaining techniques especially designed for people who have trouble with weight gain. "I gained 32 pounds of muscle in 12 weeks, I reduced my body fat from 10% to 7%, and I did it naturally," he says. "And I want to help people, achieve same results without putting their lives at risk."
Ellis notes that there are more than 70,000 healthy fitness fans in 100 countries worldwide that have changed their bodies and their lives with his program.
