Performance Enhancing Substances Information

Performance enhancing substances are especially dangerous for teens because their bodies are still developing. Teens who choose to use performance enhancing substances might see changes in their physical appearance, but they may also experience severe physical side effects like stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, muscle cramps, and mood swings. Use of many performance enhancing substances can also lead to serious kidney problems, liver problems, heart problems, and reproductive health issues.
