Muscling to ill-health: Young­sters with ‘body im­age is­sues’ at risk

Ra­jan­dran Sun­dra­murthy: Re­cently, my friend’s son took up body­build­ing at a gym in Ipoh. He started tak­ing so-called pro­tein pow­der, which I sus­pect had steroids in it. It wasn’t cheap either. Be­ing an ex-body­builder, I ad­vised him, but it didn’t work. In less than 3 months af­ter con­sum­ing it, while at the gym, he col­lapsed and was rushed to hos­pi­tal, where he was pro­nounced dead. The post-mortem re­port showed his death was due my­ocar­dial in­farc­tion, but did he die due to it?

Azrin Kadri: Pro­tein pow­der laced with steroids? Re­ally, dude, that’s not how it works.
