It’s too early to predict the extent to which DASCA will be enforced (for example, will any consumers actually be busted?) or whether individual states will conform their laws to it. Opinions about the law vary widely. Supplement industry trade associations applaud DASCA as a way to protect consumers. But some supplement consumers believe Congress should focus on more urgent matters and stay away from telling adult Americans what they can and can’t do with their own bodies. Even some who feel prohormones shouldn’t be on the market have grave concerns about creating a law that makes federal drug criminals out of fitness-minded consumers.
Women - On the other hand, women often experience a "masculinization" effect from anabolic steroids, including the following:
Researchers at Dartmouth College have developed a technique to produce synthetic steroids that could pave the way for a cascade of new drug discoveries. The process, published in the journal Nature Chemistry , facilitates access to rare, mirror-image isomers of naturally occurring steroid structures. The technique, based on a series of new chemical reactions, significantly reduces the expense and time needed to develop therapeutics from a pharmaceutically privileged yet underexplored collection of molecules.
