Anabolic Steroid (n.): any of a group of synthetic hormones, especially testosterone and the human growth hormone, that increases constructive metabolism

But what does this mean?

Steroids have been used since the 18th Olympian in 708 b.c., when ancient Romans and Greeks used strychnine, alcohol, cocaine, caffeine and hallucenogenic mushrooms in order to improve athletic performance. However, once Fred Koch, a professor at the University of Chicago, isolated the testosterone hormone in 1927, society's strategies and moral standings on the meaning of fair competition changed forever.
