Bodybuilding supplements in today’s society

I switched to this topic because I am a gym addict. I weight train 5 to 6 days a

week. I have used supplements on and off throughout the years but recently chose to stay

away from them since lately there was always something wrong with my labs. I want to

research them more and find out how dangerous they are.

What I know about body building supplements:

-

They are extremely over priced.

-

The FDA has not evaluated majority of the supplements on the market.

-

A lot of the supplements out there do not work.

-

Supplements come in many forms. (powders, liquids, pills)

Topic Questions:

How are supplements regulated?

What causes supplements to be put on the banned list?

Are there any supplements that actually work?

What percentage of people in the U.S. actually uses supplements?

Why do so many people take supplements?

What age is considered too young to take bodybuilding supplements?

What are the negative effects of bodybuilding supplements on the body?

In order to know how the supplement industry came to be so popular, we have to understand the history behind supplementation.
