BODYBUILDER WHO DIED SPOKE ABOUT ‘HAVING TO’ TAKE STEROIDS
Bodybuilder Rich Piana, who died in 2017 at 49 after being placed in an induced coma, said in 2016: “If you have the choice to stay natural or do steroids, stay natural.
“There’s no reason to do steroids, you’re only hurting your body, you’re hurting yourself.”
But he admitted: “If you want to become a professional bodybuilder, guess what? You’re probably going to have to f***ing do them. You’re not going to have a choice.”
An autopsy obtained by Men’s Health said the coroner noted “significant” heart disease in Piana and a history of drug use.
Police later revealed they found bottles of testosterone and white powder in the house and his girlfriend Chanel admitted to responders that he had been juicing for more than 20 years.
