I attended a seminar of Dorian's back in May of 98, the seminar mostly revolved around the topic of steroids, something I've no interest in. That said he was a really down to earth individual, and had great sense of humor, very dry like myself lol.
With regards to "his" health being good after 12 years of steroid use, the same can not be said for many other big names of that era
Nasser El Sonbaty - died at 47 recently from kidney complications
Flex Wheeler - kidney failure
Andreas Munzer - died at 33, kidney and liver failure, and his heart was enlarged
Mohammad Beneiza - Dead at 33, heart failure after an injection of clenbuterol
Art Artwood - died at 38 of a massive heart attack
Mike Materazzo - Triple heart by-pass 38, plus two heart attacks
Tom Prince - Kidney failure
Don Long - kidney failure
Shaun Davies - kidney failure
Derrick Whitsett - died from kidney failure
Don Youngblood - died at 51, heart attack
Sonny Schmidt - dead at 50, cancer
Don "the rippler Ross", Died at 51, heart attack
Curtis Lefflar - Died of heart attack, aged 36
Don Ross - Died at 51 of a massive heart attack
Charles Durr - Died at 44, enlarged heart
Eduardo Kawak - died at 47, heart attack
Luke Wood, died at 35, kidney failure
Kris Dim, heart attack and open heart surgery at the age of 37
Then there's the likes of Bertil Fox, Craig Titus and Sally McNeil that are all serving life for murder, the latter two blame steroids for their action's.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg....
Don't quote me but I think Kris Dim is an exception on that list, his was a genetic heart defect. I am sure steroids wouldn't have helped, but they supposedly weren't a causative factor.
Also (if my memory has got this right), I'm fairly certain that Mohammed Beneziza died from complications arising from severe electrolyte imbalances; I think he was given potassium in hospital, which was what killed him due to it causing a heart attack/seizure. The injection you are referring to I think
