Ahh yes, this man was one of the original, and arguably innocent, scandalous professional athletes: Shoeless Joe Jackson . The Chicago White Sox baseball player took his team to a World Series title in 1917 during his heyday—with Babe Ruth even saying that he copied Jackson’s style when he took the plate. Unfortunately, his involvement in the Black Sox scandal left his reputation even dirtier than his soiled uncovered baseball stockings. Apparently, one World Series wasn't enough for Jackson, who agreed to throw the 1919 World Series for $20,000, along with seven other teammates. After Jackson only received $5,000 of his share and the public found out about the shady deal, all eight players were banned from baseball for life. That big mistake kept Jackson form getting inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame and left him working at a liquor store until he died.

In addition to the mentioned side effects several others have been reported. In both males and females acne are frequently reported, as well as hypertrophy of sebaceous glands, increased tallow excretion, hair loss, and alopecia. There is some evidence that anabolic steroid abuse may affect the immune system, leading to a decreased effectiveness of the defense system. Steroid use decreases the glucose tolerance, while there is an increase in insulin resistance. These changes mimic Type II diabetes. These changes seem to be reversible after abstention from the drugs.

Women - On the other hand, women often experience a "masculinization" effect from anabolic steroids, including the following:

  • Facial hair growth
  • Deepened voice
  • Breast reduction
  • Menstrual cycle changes
With continued use of anabolic steroids, both sexes can experience the following effects, which range from the merely unsightly to the life endangering. They include:
  • Acne
  • Bloated appearance
  • Rapid weight gain
  • Clotting disorders
  • Liver damage
  • Premature heart attacks and strokes
  • Elevated cholesterol levels
  • Weakened tendons
