Doctors say steroid use in the Bronx is more widespread than some may think

The national spotlight is focusing on congressional hearings and cracking down on professional athletes. But many athletes in the Bronx are using over-the-counter supplements to enhance their physique. Doctors and fitness experts say the supplements in health food stores can be dangerous. Since there are no standards for what's actually in them, they can be ineffective and even harmful. Related link:American Lung Association
