Steroids use remain a big challenge especially with the young people and professionals in the body building field. Despite the many negative ill effects they have on people like impotency, heart and liver ailments and severe hormonal imbalances, a big number of fitness junkies feel obliged to use them for increasing muscle mass. Sadly, British bodybuilder Dean Wharmby joins the statistics of people who have paid the ultimate sacrifice with their life to these enhancers.

As a fitness guru, Dean dosed up to 10,000 calories of diet of burgers, pizzas and bacon sandwiches and more than 8 energy drinks per day. In addition, he also took anabolic steroids to boost his energy and sculpt his muscles. Mr. Wharmby had been a bodybuilder for 20 years before he fell ill. He concurs that he initially ingested them because ‘everybody did it’ but halted when he ventured in his personal training business where his diet took a turn for the worse.

“I could train seven clients in a day, back-to-back,” he said. “Then I would have to have the energy to train myself.” At his biggest, he was 280 pounds. Dean admits that he used to grab a McDonalds for a snack and pizza on his way home to have while his girlfriend of five years prepared dinner. Unfortunately, his obsession with enhancing his physique and the related abuse of anabolic steroids caused him to develop tumors. On this discovery, the disease had progressed so much into large tumors.

Luckily, he was offered chemotherapy and a liver transplant but he decided to turn them down in favor of natural remedies. Asked why he took the decision, he said, “I refused it from day one. The main reason why I chose to do natural instead of artificial was because I wanted to live. I didn’t want to die.” Dean’s tumor had disappeared in a year’s time but he got complacent causing a re-lapse of the disease.

This time round, the tumors were even bigger and doctors advised that chemotherapy wouldn’t help. Shortly after his death, Mrs. Rigby expressed her heartbreak but seeks comfort in the knowledge that Dean is at peace with no more pain. With the doctors’ insistence that his liver cancer was caused by his steroids used, Dean and Rigby started a Facebook page to inspire change the perception towards steroids. With over 10,000 likes, Wharmby surely communicates his intended message posthumously.
