“Steroids hurt your liver”. This monotonous phrase has been used to scare generations of people away from steroid use. Perhaps it’s because it’s a tangible organ, and easier to comprehend than brain hormone secretions, it was used for medical fearmongering. Perhaps it’s because liver disease is a major problem in our society (although the vast majority of that is from alcohol abuse). Perhaps it’s just because the liver is a misunderstood organ, and tests of liver enzymes are so often analyzed incorrectly. Whatever the reason, when it comes to steroids, the liver takes the brunt of the blame for why they are bad.
