    Bodybuilders

    Bodybuilders don't have the best reputations when it comes to physical feature enhancement. While not all have resorted to artificial help, many have done so. The results may have produced large physiques, but they've also resulted in side effects, serious medical issues and even death. And since the latter is what this site is all about, perhaps it's time bodybuilders got their own thread.

    And yet thumbed his nose at the first two accusations, strutting out on live television several times. I think this may be more about what hasn't yet been revealed, more-so than the hush money payouts.
