All this week ESPN is giving segments on steroids. Today they aired a segment on an old time boxer Bob Hazleton. This guy took steroids back in the day and later had to get his legs amputated because of gangreen. He claims the steroids is what caused his legs to get gangreen and be amputated.
I dont buy it one bit. I've never heard of steroid use being the cause of anything like this. I'm not a steroid expert but this just may be the craziest thing related to steroids I've ever heard.

Only way AAS could have caused it is if the jab itself was infected, other than that, maybe an increased red blood cell count obstructed the excretion of the infection.

But all in all it sounds like Bert Bullshit

It talks about him loosing his legs due to injection and infections cause by habitul use. The only way he would get the infections is from being dirty and sloppy with his use. The infection I'm sure easily spread and did iner-tissue damage since he didn't know anything about taking care of the abcess. Hell he probably still continued to inject around the infected site where it didn't hurt.

i believe the amputation was needed because of a blood clot somewhere in his leg. but still the dumbass had gangreen and that shit doesn't happen overnight. bottom line, he had to have his leg amputated because he's ignorant, not because he took steroids.

agreed , everyone wants to get there 15 minutes now and the media is willing to drag anything out that has to do with steroids--

i wish the media would take the time to learn about the drug there making sound worse then cocaine - instead of listening to those that are pushing there personal agenda's

Boxer who lost both legs warns against steriod use

By Laura Pack - Scripps Howard Foundation Wire

Former heavyweight boxer Robert Hazelton has spent the last seven years having both of his legs amputated bit by bit.

March 17, 2004 (AXcess News/SHFW) Washington - Former heavyweight boxer Robert Hazelton has spent the last seven years having both of his legs amputated bit by bit.

Hazelton now finds himself in a wheelchair because of his steroid use. He's had more than 49 surgeries on both legs. Halfway through his testimony Tuesday at a House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security hearing, he paused to gather his composure.

"I sit here with no legs," Hazelton said. After another deep breath, he continued, "Well, it's because people didn't tell me. We've got to do something about this drug."

At a hearing on the "Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 2004," Hazelton joined a panel including Rep. John Sweeney, R-N.Y.; Joseph Rannazzisi, deputy director of the Office of Diversion Control of the Drug Enforcement Agency, and Ralph Hale, a doctor and chairman of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's board.

The legislation would add several steroid precursors to the list of banned substances. The body converts steroid precursors into anabolic steroids once they are ingested.

The bill would also increase penalties for anyone who traffics in steroids within 1,000 feet of an athletic facility. Witnesses expressed concerns that steroid use by professional athletes will influence children to do the same.

"Keeping our children safe is more important than restoring integrity to the sports world," Sweeney said.

Steroid use has been banned in the United States for more than 10 years. Since then, new products called steroid precursors, which donít fit the definitions in the existing laws, have become popular.

"The trend is alarming," said Rep. Howard Coble, R-N.C., subcommittee chairman. "But even more disturbing is some are not yet illegal."

Products are marketed under names that reinforce their connection to anabolic steroids, including Masterbolan, Anabol-X, Paradrol and Animal Stak, Hale said.

Advances in technology and science allow manufacturers to make minor chemical changes to a product after it is deemed illegal and reintroduce it as a legal substance.

"There's always people who will try any way possible to circumvent the law," Hale said. He said that as long as precursors are legal, no amount of education will stop people from using over-the-counter drugs and dietary supplements containing precursors.

High-school students "believe that its been approved because they don't understand the alternatives," Hale said.

Anabolic steroids can increase the risk for heart attacks, strokes, liver problems and cancer. They can also cause undesirable body changes including acne, hair loss, enlarged breasts in men and more masculine features in women, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse's Web site.

In 1969 Hazelton began boxing, winning seven straight fights. He was defeated by George Foreman in the next fight, a loss that prompted his steroid use to enhance performance, he explained.

"You feel like you aren't big enough," even as the user gains weight, he said.

In the first few years of use, he gained 40 pounds and was winning the majority of his fights. But almost four years later, the pain in his calves was so severe that it hurt to walk, he said. Eventually his legs became infected and developed gangrene.

Hazelton said he now lectures to educate kids about the dangers of steroids - something he wished he'd known when started taking them.
