Let’s start with a question: Are your kids using Appearance & Performance Enhancing Drugs such as steroids, stimulants, diuretics, or Over the Counter Supplements?
This week, we talk with Donald Hooton Jr., President of the Taylor Hooton Foundation, about the current statistics, concerns, and prevention strategies and programs for Appearance & Performance Enhancing Drug use.
Don’t think for a second that your child, your athletes, or your students have not or will not at some point think about using!
Here are some scary statistics:
- 1.5 million teens admit to using
- 62.5% of steroid users do it to improve their looks
- 85% of high school students have never had a parent, teacher, or coach talk to them about the dangers of using performance enhancing drugs
- The fastest growing user group of performance enhancing drugs: Young Females
It’s an all important conversation and one that is all too often overlooked so let’s start talking right now!
If you have any questions or experiences you would like to share, let us know I’d like to hear from you.
As always, thanks for listening!
