The Real Reason Why Steroids Are Banned From Sports

Whatever the situation, there are always two explanations for what’s happening: what they are telling you and the truth. Behind every decision, affecting mass amount of people, stand heavy political interests and desire to promote very specific financial, moral and cultural concepts. On that level nothing is simply a coincidence. All action is planned carefully behind closed doors, and correspondence appears to be a mystery. What the public receives is nothing but cheap PR, appealing only to those who find reality shows and celebrity gossip valuable.

Everybody knows the official reason why steroids are banned from sports: they’re dangerous and endorse unfair competition among athletes. Those who are caught using are labeled as cheaters and suffer severe consequences. Many sports careers have ended because of “doping control”. The truth, however, is that steroids never left sports, despite being “banned”. They remain a wild card used for creation of various levers against specific competitors and nations.

There are many examples of such scenarios. In 2008, Bulgaria’s Weightlifting Federation had no choice but to withdraw its team from the Beijing Olympics after 11 lifters failed drug testing. While there is no doubt that weightlifters have been using anabolic steroids since the dawn of time, you can’t possibly think that all the others, who passed the tests, were clean. I assure you they weren’t.


So, why were the Bulgarians banned? There are two logical explanations. Either the medical team truly failed to clean the systems of the lifters for the scheduled tests, or politics decided the outcome. The second one is the more likely plot. As they say: “you have to pay to play”. The legendary coach of the old Bulgarian Olympic weightlifting team, Ivan Abadjiev, has said many times that the medals at big forums are divided prior to the event. Abadjiev gave interviews in which he revealed that on various occasions he was demanded to split medals with the Soviet team.

The situation with former American hero Lance Armstrong was similar. Out of the blue he decided to confess in front of none other than the definition of corporate mainstream media, Oprah. As a result his medals were given to the next in line. How could you possibly believe that the other cyclists were not relying on performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs)? To be at the top you need elite genetics, luck and perseverance. However, to succeed at the top you also have to play by the real rules, which require the usage of “dirty tricks”. They don’t write this in the manual, but even kids should know better by now.

Fair play? You’ve been reading too much mainstream propaganda.

The term “fair play” is simply doublespeak. There’s nothing fair about sports and never will be. Have you ever wondered why small counties are always harmed at the Olympics? Because the sponsors say so. Small country, small money. Get out!

Nobody ever wanted sports to be fair, and they will never be. It’s a business. The real players are the corporations and the large economies behind the teams. Athletes ain’t nothing but pawns and mouthpieces for big companies. Steroids are used as a remote control detonation device to move the pawns in the desired direction. If you don’t play by the rules, the elite will push the button. Every athlete is a potential PEDs abuser who can lose his medals and get shafted at any time.

In 1988, Ben Johnson from Canada was the first human to run 100m in 9.79 seconds at a sport event. However, he was stripped of his Olympic Gold Medal due to the usage of stanozolol a.k.a. Winstrol. The medal was given to Carl Lewis, and the consequences for Johnson were extremely negative. Repercussions are felt to this very day. In 2013, Johnson stated the following: “I was nailed on a cross, and 25 years later I’m still being punished.”

What happened after Johnson was “busted”? The 100m records continued to improve. Since 1988 until modern days, the world record went from 9.92 to 9.58 seconds, which is currently the best time of Usain Bolt. Those numbers may seem super close to people who are not involved in the sport, but every millisecond could very well equal 5 lbs more weight to a weightlifting record.

If we accept that drug testing has gotten better over the period, what’s left as reasons for the improvement over the last 20-25 years is training and better selection of genetically gifted runners. Those are the only factors, besides steroid usage, that could change. Everything else remains the same. There is no possible way for humans to improve their DNA, at least as of now. The logical conclusion is that either steroids have continued to be used or training and talent selection have progressed so much that the previous records, set with the help of PEDs, were not only matched but surpassed as well. Take your pick.

As proven by the case of Ben Johnson whenever a player is busted for steroids, the public reaction is as follows: “What a fucking cheater!” That’s because the media, which is controlled by big corporations, want you to believe so. If the so-called drug tests were performed honestly, and the results were taken into consideration, 90% of all professional sportsmen would give a positive probe. Of course, this is not the case. I would even go as far as saying that there are many champions who won gold medals without even being tested. Tests, similar to laws, apply only to the poor.

The other reason for the official banning of steroids is equally laughable. “Because steroids are bad for your health.” Seriously? The last thing people care about, when it comes to commercial games, is the health of competitors. Professional sports are not healthy and never will be. Just look at the injuries that occur: car crashes, ligament tears, joint dislocations, cartilage damage, broken spines, knockouts. Does any of this seem healthy? No, but it’s entertaining. Fighters can’t, at least on paper, use steroids but are allowed to beat the hell out of each other. Many fights end with one fighter on ground, unconscious and lying in a blood bath. Big money loves blood.

Steroids were used since the beginning of sports. According to a material written by Larry D. Bowers PhD the word “doping” comes from the Dutch term “doop”. This was, supposedly, a viscous opium juice and the drug of choice of the ancient Greeks. Thus, the use of PED in sports has been going on since the original Olympic Games. Enigmatically, today the International Olympic Committee (IOC) lists caffeine as a banned substance. Who knows? Maybe “doop” should be added to the list too. We want to be “fair”, right?

It’s logical to expect that PEDs will only get better with time. You can’t stay on the “doop” level forever. People want to see more: Superman 1, Superman 2, Spider-man…etc. The introduction of the powerful steroid Dianabol (better known as Dbol) to strength sports in the U.S. is a perfect illustration of the real motives behind steroid usage.

Back in the day Dianabol was invented and developed by CIBA Pharmaceuticals Switzerland. However, something very different was presented to the public in the United States. The invention of Dianabol was attributed to Dr. John Ziegler. Some publications even claim that Dianabol was created with one goal in mind – to help America beat those bad doping Russians.

In October 1954, Ziegler went to Vienna with the American weightlifting team, and just like it happens in the movies, he learned from a drunk Russian physicist that Russia’s team is on “dat dere cell tech”, or testosterone in particular. Ironically, the Russians also claimed that the U.S. athletes were using PEDs.

Motivated to fight the injustice, Dr. Ziegler, started using testosterone himself and gave it to a few lifters on the York barbell team, including the popular Olympic weightlifter/bodybuilder John Grimek.

As expected the results were positive, and the athletes gained muscular bodyweight which helps a ton when your goal is to lift heavy weights. According to the official, or should I say the PR version, Ziegler developed Dianabol because he was concerned about the side effects of testosterone. However, there is one big problem.

Two publications, from 1955 and 1956, made by the Swiss scientific journal Helvetica Chimica Acta revealed that Ziegler was not really involved in the process. The team consisted only of scientists working at CIBA Switzerland and included Albert Wettstein, Alfred Hunger, Charles Meystre, Ludwig Ehmann, Ernst Vischer, Hans Peter Frey and Walter Voser.

This version is also backed by a book entitled “Cartels: Challenge to a Free World” by Wendell Berge. The material has a special part dedicated to a pharmaceutical cartel involved in the development and distribution of synthetic hormones. Bodybuilders’ favorite CIBA Pharmaceuticals Switzerland is listed as one of the largest European manufacturers involved in the cartel. The company had a subsidiary in the United States registered under the name CIBA Pharmaceuticals of Summit, New Jersey.

In the beginning all synthetic hormones of CIBA Pharmaceuticals of Summit, New Jersey were supplied by the original CIBA Switzerland. Later on, however, the U.S. subsidiary began distributing synthetic hormones under it’s own name. Guess what? Dr. Ziegler worked part time for CIBA Pharmaceuticals of Summit, New Jersey.

The statement that the U.S. company was receiving “the good stuff” directly from Basel, aligns perfectly with the publication in Helvetica Chimica Acta, which did not include Dr. Ziegler as part of the research team. The conclusion is that Dr. Ziegler may have popularized steroids among weightlifters in the U.S. but he was not “the father of Dianabol”.

This story completely crushes the false idea that steroids were never tolerated in sports. Since the very beginning PEDs were welcomed into commercial games like a blessing. The goal has always been to reach higher peaks in order to create a show attracting more spectators. The more viewers and fans there are, the bigger the income of the sponsors who use every event to advertise something and, of course, exercise mind control. Big money never cared about the health of anybody and never will. It only cares about becoming bigger, regardless of consequences.

Have you ever wondered why popular sport celebrities get paid more than you will ever make in five lives? Technically, they don’t add a lot of value as far as GDP is concerned. The truth is that athletes play a crucial role by being used to support the slave system of this world. The army of valets has to be kept busy and entertained somehow. Robbing them in the process is a nice bonus.

When people spend all their energy and emotions watching sports and arguing, there is no desire and time left to criticize the system. Thus, it only makes sense to keep the hero status of sports celebrities. That’s why people are told that their idols are good and honest individuals who would never cheat. This is another reason why steroids continue to be “regulated”, and there are teams of people waiting to take your precious urine at the airport. They don’t want the dream to end.

Bodybuilding is a beauty contest with elements of sports activity which reveals perfectly the importance of steroids for the creation of a fake image. Since the very beginning bodybuilders have been relying on anabolic steroids to break the barriers. Do you think it is a coincidence that the Golden Era of Bodybuilding started in the 1970s? The “new school” bodybuilders from the 70s were destroying those from the early and late 50s, who were only using some kind of primitive testosterone products.

The 60s and 70s were the time when all kinds of muscle building drugs were developed. The quality was supreme since most of the available products were made by pharmaceutical companies with sufficient funding and world class laboratories. The exportation of production facilities to China was yet to happen, and the consumers were enjoying larger amount of goods made in the U.S. and Europe. This, of course, does not mean that China cannot produce quality products. It is certainly possible, but for various economic and political reasons the nation has been enslaved by agreeing to work for cheap. And what do the lazy consumers love more than cheap goods? Even cheaper goods.

Today, there are all kinds of sites selling anabolic steroids online, but it’s a well known fact that most are made in the basement of chemists, who just happened to fail the last few exams. The market is also flooded with fakes. You buy one thing only to get something with a totally different compound in it. That’s why the modern doses of bodybuilders are so high. It’s called steroid inflation. You need more of the stuff to acquire effects that were once achievable with much smaller doses.

While steroids have degraded in quality on a mass scale, they never left bodybuilding and never will. That’s the only way for the industry to make massive amounts of profit. To the readers of my previous work the scheme is pretty clear: bodybuilders use steroids, growth hormone and insulin to build their bodies, but the public is fed lies and mislead into buying muscle supplements, which are supposedly as effective as synthetic hormones. This is not the case and never has been.

However, the spread of misinformation and trash material lying to teenagers, who flex their biceps in the elevator like it’s their job, has to continue. Keeping drug usage a secret is what keeps the system in place. Any professional bodybuilder who dares to admit that steroids are used will lose all supplement endorsement deals immediately and can even go to jail. As a result of this propaganda tsunami, we have teenagers who literally steal money from the their moms’ purses to buy magic fart powders from the “buff guy at the store”, who knows “the secret to muscle”.

But, what do we expect? After all, the society is stupid enough to suck on things like the law of attraction. By imaging a luxury car frequently enough, you will attract it in your life. If that was the case, every horny adolescent will enjoy the company of a pornstar in bed. There may be some truth to similar ideas, but what is presented on the main scene is nothing more than superficial and watered-down version of much higher cosmic laws. Stupid and cheap sell well.

Simple logic says that if something doesn’t change decade after decade, the system needs it as it is. A popular example would be the political parties which are nothing more than different branches of the same tree. The regime may have different names but in the end, it always results in slavery and establishment of unjustified authority figures. Steroids have been in sports since the 50s, and doping tests are advanced enough to detect almost everything when performed under strict control. But, if that’s the case, why do they fail so often and so “randomly”? Because the authorities figures you’ve “chosen” said so.

The unquestionable abuse of anabolic steroids in professional bodybuilding was the reason for the creation of “natural bodybuilding”. The bad IFBB pros have been labeled as cheaters and deceitful persons, while the so-called “natties” are used to market supplements to the “aware”. We have the hero you need. Make your choice today.

Those who don’t want to use steroids to build their bodies, are now allowed to put their effort in “natural bodybuilding”. However, since true natural bodybuilding would never be able to attract as much attention as unnatural bodybuilding and physique shows, the sponsors allow the use of steroids among natural bodybuilders and physique models. The doses are smaller but still needed to create the incredible bodies seen in magazines. It would not be an exaggeration to state that natural bodybuilding does not really exist, except of course in the local gym consisting of New Year resolutionists.

Bodybuilding, Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting and the up and coming physique shows are the sports activities affected the most by the usage of steroids. If all drugs are removed from those sports, the records will drop by hundreds of pounds, and bodybuilders would not be much bigger than your dad or grandfather, because with each generation of males the level of testosterone seems to be diminishing. Who would want that? Certainly not the big corporations. If one thing is certain, it’s that corporate profits dictate the policy of all industries.

Steroid usage in American football has been an issue since the late 50s . However, the National Football League (NFL) began testing in 1987. Don’t you think that’s a bit too late? By 1980, Arnold Schwarzenegger was already a 7 time winner of the most prestigious bodybuilding show, Mr. Olympia. Arnold has also admitted to using steroids in many video interviews.

Ironically, anabolic steroids were added to the IOC’s banned substance list in 1975. By 1976, steroids were already illegal in the United States. If that’s the case why did drug testing in NFL began in 1987? Because many dead presidents said so. You mad?

It’s obvious that NFL players benefit immensely from the usage of anabolic steroids. How do you think the defense players get to be 220 – 270 lbs of thick muscle? By eating chips and sugary drinks provided by their sponsors? Truth be told, steroids have never left the NFL and never will.

On September 29, 2014 in the media appeared information that the NFL is suspending the American football player Laron Landry for a few games because of PEDs. What was the response of Landry? He posted a picture on Instagram showing a party guy with his penis hanging out of his zipper. It just goes to show you that sometimes players don’t really care about those PEDs penalties. And why would you care? The industry can and will protect you, as long as you’re useful and obedient.

People are used to seeing steroid induced performance and physiques. The sports industry would perform seppuku with a needle, if everything was banned for real. It would feel like being sucked into a time machine all the way back to the 1940s. This is not how you keep the matrix going. Without the magical elixirs interest in sports will be reduced, at least initially. But before all the crowd will feel cheated. It’s always warmer inside a bubble carefully prepared by your masters. Stay there. You have nothing to fear. The government will protect you and teach you how to be happy.

This brings us to the logical question: what would happen if the so-called authorities were to finally admit that steroids are used in sports massively, and testing is ineffective not because of scientific shortcomings but political issues and corporate profits? Imagine a world where the sports media publishes titles such as: “Mr. Olympia Is Now Sponsored By Steroid Producers”, “NFL Signs A Linebacker With Great Androgen Receptors”, “2025 Budget Updated: The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports Receives 50 Millions Subsidies For Steroids And Growth Hormone”…etc. Who would win from from similar scenario? Certainly not the big boys.

Consequently, to get the most out of the situation steroids are banned and will remained banned forever. They create a better show and can also be used as a secret weapon against naughty sports stars, coaches and nations, refusing to pay their steroid fees. This is a trump card which is far more powerful, if steroids remain an outlaw.

Ironically, narcotics share the same particularity – they are more useful as an illegal good. There is no doubt that the truly large supplies of narcotics come from channels protected by the government. In the books “The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia” and “Drug Traffic: Narcotics and Organized Crime in Australia” Alfred W. McCoy revealed that the Central Intelligence Agency, better know from propaganda movies as CIA, was largely involved in drug trafficking from the Middle East through Europe to the United States in the 1960s. If you think narcotics are kept illegal because it’s hard to catch the “bad guys”, think again.

Steroids share the same destiny.
