Abstract

Increasing AAS use has detrimental effects on mental and physical health, creating a public health crisis. The need to rebuild beauty standards for a sustainable future has become more urgent than ever before. This poster aims to show that the use of anabolic steroids creates a feedback loop of insecurity and mental health problems, causing exponential usage of appearance and performance enhancing drugs. Beginning with the prevalence of AAS in the public eye, then leading to increases in body dissatisfaction, insecurity, and mental health disorders, which then leads to an increase of AAS usage, creates the cycle. This poster poses some ways to create healthier beauty standards for adolescent males.
