William Llewellyn Lectures at Lord’s Cricket Ground

by William Llewellyn

William Llewellyn Injecting SteroidsMESO-Rx readers may want to listen to a recent lecture by ANABOLICS 2007 Author William Llewellyn. Llewellyn was invited to speak at the 2006 National Conference on Injecting Drug Use (NCIDU06) in London, which covers issues relevant to the national needle exchange program in the UK. The conference is attended by key policy makers, commissioners, and those that assist injectable drug users in the nation’s many free needle exchange clinics. The key interest in having Llewellyn speak at the last conference stemmed from the growing number of steroid users entering needle exchange looking for new syringes and (often) injection assistance. With new steroid users actually outnumbering those entering with addictions to narcotics, the conference wisely sought to find someone that could help them better understand both the scientific and social aspects of these drugs and their users. The 2006 conference took place at the Lord’s Cricket Ground, and Llewellyn presented his lecture on Friday October 13th, 2006. The audio was just made available.

Instead of hearing the usual alarmist reports of the very unrealistic terrors of steroid use, Llewellyn treated the audience to a truly honest and balanced assessment of the function, history, risks, and politics surrounding anabolic steroids. In a presentation that must have been highly contradictory to what most were expecting, Llewellyn’s speech included key points about how the risks of steroid use were tangible but highly overstated, how rare forms of cancer, suicide, and violent behavior have NOT been conclusively linked to steroid use, how steroids have been in widespread use for more than 70 years and are well (not poorly) understood, how laws that restrict the supply of legitimate drugs to users ironically increase their relative health risks, and, perhaps most importantly, how anabolic steroids can be used with higher relative safety. This presentation is 25-minutes of solid steroid fact, and is an absolute must for anyone that wants better understand the health and social implications of anabolic steroid use.
