    DescriptionMany who want the "perfect" body now turn to steroids. The numbers who actually inject are rising rapidly. Heroin, it seems, now takes second place when it comes to needles. Just how bad is it and what are the risks?

    Joining us on Skype from Middlesbrough is Andrew Richardson, a blogger who's written about drugs in sport; Joe Kean, independent researcher into steroid misuse who is also a former steroid user; Callum Jackson, personal trainer and ex- professional cricketer and Roy Jones, a nurse who specialises in substance abuse.
