Chris Benoit's Suicide
#11
Thanks Josh.  I don't think you're going to start a debate, at least not with me.  My main point was that there are a lot of different types of steroids, and many of them are available medicinally. It's been a long time since I had a class that covered steroids, so I'm glad you could expand on what I had to say and correct my error.  All I could remember were sex steroids vs. other types of steroids, since sex steroids are the ones other researchers in my area deal with. But now that you've mentioned it, I'm recalling hazy memories of glucosteroids as well.

And actually, now that you've jogged my memory, it's occurring to me that androgenic steroids must be a type of sex steroids and that sex steroids is a very broad category. Does that sound right?

Well all steroids are pretty much considered a sex steroid since is generaly testostorne and sometimes with estrogen.

Androgenic steroids are the ones that promote the most muscle and bone mass increase. They are ones used by athletes and people with terminal disease's like cancer HIV and so on.

I read your post again with sex steroids are you refering to them used when a person is low on a certain hormone compared to say using them to help build muscle mass?

I checked my intro to neuroscience textbook while I was at work today. I knew keeping all my textbooks would come in handy someday!

According to the book, there are sex steroids, glucosteroids, plant steroids, insect steroids, and cholesterol. I had completely forgotten cholesterol was a steroid.

Sex steroids have a bunch of different types of steroids categorized under them, like testosterone, estrogen, and the androgen/anabolic ones you were talking about, Josh.

Now I have a deep desire to go back through all my textbooks and see what else I've forgotten over the years. Rolleyes

Hi Josh,

Thank you for educating us on this topic. Are you a medic? May I ask your background? Very interesting! I didn't know that 'roid rage was not a definite--I have very shaky background on this, clearly!
