In the past, steroid is used mostly in college, Olympic, and professional sports. Today, steroids are being used by student athletes, amateur athletes, and professional even though most major professional and amateur athletic organizations have banned steroids for use by their athletes. These organizations include the International Olympic Committee, National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and the National Football League (NFL). Is steroid use common among athletes? We really do not know. What is known is that a December 16, 2004, New York Times poll found that 43 percent of Americans think at least half of the athletes playing professional sports are using performance-enhancing drugs. In 1988, Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson was stripped of his 100-meter gold medal for testing positive for the steroids. Professional football star Lyle Alzado suffered an agonizing death as a result of years of steroid for which he blamed his brain cancer. During an interview with Mike Wallace of 60 Minutes Jose Canseco says injecting his teammates with steroids was "something so common" that he didn't give it much thought.
