Long-term use of muscle-building anabolic steroids may weaken the functioning of the heart, an alarming study shows.

Use of the drug appears to contribute to artery-clogging, a team of US scientists have discovered.

It was also linked to elevated blood pressure and cholesterol levels - both risk factors for heart disease.

It serves as a stark warning to the millions across the globe who use the substance.

And recent research suggests there is a worrying growing trend among middle-aged men taking the drug commonly used by bodybuilders.

'It is critical that clinicians become aware of the long-term risks of anabolic steroid use on the heart,' said Dr Harrison Pope Jr, a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and co-lead author of the study.
