the old guy might have been serge nubret, a bb in the 70's (you might remember him from pumping iron, came in 2nd to arnold at the 75 olympia.) i didn't see the special, but serge still competes and looks incredible for his age. about the effects of AAS, they seemed to have left out some very important factors such as increased hypertension, which, if strikes an unlucky person with heart problems unbeknownst to him at the time..well..oops. also, long term AAS use negatively affects just about everyone. they just mentioned the lucky ones to state their claim lol. the point is that the use of AAS is dangerous in both the short and long terms. Whether to use them or not depends on your own priorities.
and yes, injectables are safer than orals...easier on kidneys, liver etc.
It wasn't Serge Nubret, I know who he is.
Having watched the show, and thought it out over the last couple of weeks, I wonder if it isn't big media trying to justify, and prepare the sports public in accepting anabolic steroids? Kind of the Joseph Goebbles approach? Just keep feeding the masses half truths (or in his case, no truths), and eventually they will acquiese.
