Who invented Steroids?
Dr. Ruzicka discovered the use of steroids in the early 1930s for medical purposes particularly to fight conditions like cancer. The Russians started injecting themselves during the world weightlifting championship. An American scientist named John Ziegler saw this incredible record breaking success when he attended the world weightlifting championships in Vienna, Austria. According to unverified reports, "Dr. Ziegler brought the Russian team doctor to a bar, got him drunk, and then learned that the Russians were using testosterone for their record breaking performances in competition. Dr. Zeigler came back to the U.S. and developed an oral version of testosterone called Dianabol (methandrostenolone) that would open the door for scientists of the time to discover virtually all of the popular steroids we have today. Dianabol was designed specifically to increase strength and power more than pure testosterone. According to many athletes who have tried both, this is without a doubt the case. The U.S. quickly began to regain the lead in its weight lifting mastery(bodybuildingtop.com)".
