Year 11 students have just been learning about the classification of drugs and the religious attitudes to illegal drugs in their RS lessons. During one activity they attempted to classify about 9 drugs into the UK’s system of Class A, Class B and Class C drugs. So we stumbled upon steroids and how as a Class C drug they are illegal unless under prescription from a doctor. You may have heard of steroids before when watching the news about another athlete facing a long-term ban for using steroids to gain an unfair advantage.
Well now we have the Made in Chelsea star, who was supposed to be appearing on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Spencer Matthews having to leave the ITV show due to an addiction with steroids. He said he’d been bulking up for a boxing match which ironically had never taken place.
To find out about the health risks, effects on your body and legal rules about steroids you can read the facts on the Talk to Frank website.
