Why are steroids bad?

I want to gain muscle but I'm EXTREMELY lazy! I'm not going to join sports it's just because i want a better body. also are they illegal? I'm 13 and a boy

They are extremely illegal! And they can cause major health problems and also death. The best way to gain muscle is doing it naturally, and if you don't do it naturally then you don't deserve muscle.

Steroids make women look manlier (makes their breasts smaller) and makes men look girlier (makes their thing smaller) I also heard it makes the girls voice lower and the guys voice higher not sure though...

Roids are bad because they can have adverse affects on your body. Not all roids are illegal. They do serve a medical purpose when used as prescribed by a doctor. Suggest you do not try them to for these reasons. Sorry to say but you would be better off going the all natural way.

Steroids can be good if prescribed correctly, they kept my late grandfather going for ages after they thought he would die because of the steroids he was on, and I think my other grandfather is also on steroids now and I hope they work for him too.

Steroids can cause massive damage to your liver and other organs. Using them can cause organ failure later in life. I've seen pictures of some of these guys that used to do steroids and were massive (I mean they were amazing), then to see them now later in life, with organ failure, and most of them are whisp-thin. It isn't worth it.

Not to mention, steroids don't make you strong -- they only work in conjunction with a rigorous workout anyway. If you're lazy, they only make you fat.

@mosslegs... I think you're referring to catabolic steroids. But, even if you're talking about anabolic steriods (as the asker is referring to) you are right... when prescribed by a doctor for the right reasons, they can be lifesaving.

I don't know what type they were prescribed, I just know it was steroids, so I auomarically defend steroids if someone says they are bad, even though I never knew my grandfather (although I would not go near them if I wasn't prescribed them).

If steroids arent prescribed to you by a MD then yes taking them at least the kind your talking about is illegal. and yes they are bad or have bad side effects to your organs in particular your kidneys liver stomach lungs heart. also if your dont work them even if they do get bigger (meaning your muscles) they will not have tone meaning the muscles will be flabby. To get bulkier I would suggest a workout followed by a high protein meal and a vitamin B supplement .... the importance is in that order for the high protein I would suggest a supplement or just a can of Tuna I used to eat Tuna and Saltines and drink milk

roids are for "repairing" muscles..(open heart surgery recovery are a reason Dr. give them sometimes..for a quicker healing..).."lifters" use them to heal torn muscles..from "power lifting"...so that in only a couple days they can "rip" again..to add bulk...but your liver has a hard time of them..over long use...and they do/can cause "Rage"... avoid them..use over the counter stuff..but you need to work..to gain...
