We are becoming quite tired of these senseless and premature steroid deaths. Nasser’s death immediately followed the death of Matt Duval. Matt Duval was another bodybuilder with too much body weight relative to his vertically-challenged frame. Unlike Nasser, Matt didn’t achieve the same level of notoriety with competitions limited to amateur Junior National competitions and ad hoc guest posing appearances. We offer no kind words to describe either Matt Duval or Nasser El Sonbaty following such horrible deaths. In his absence, Nasser adversely affected the lives of family members, American & German friends, and a global fan base. The enormity of their structures was influential to young generations determined to initiate steroid cycles even though they would become too addicted to observe Nasser’s final outcome and deviate from their destructive behavior. For these reasons, we offer no ‘Rest In Peace’ sentiments. Rather, we say “It Is What It Is”.
AS NOTED IN EARLIER ARTICLES ON THIS WEBSITE, KIDNEYS ARE AMONG INTERNAL ORGANS THAT OFTEN FAIL WHEN SUBJECT TO PROLONGED STEROID USE. WHEN USED CORRECTLY, STEROIDS AND HORMONES ARE ONLY TO BE USED FOR THE TREATMENT OF (A) LEGITIMATE WASTING DISEASES AFTER BEING (B) APPROPRIATELY PRESCRIBED BY AN HONEST MEDICAL DOCTOR. DEREK ANTHONY’S MEDICAL ISSUES WERE SO CHRONIC THAT HE WAS ON DIALYSIS TREATMENT FOR SEVERAL YEARS.
NOTE: DIALYSIS IS COMMON TO MANY BODYBUILDERS AND ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER IS RUMORED TO BE RECEIVING DIALYSIS TREATMENTS 3-TIMES PER WEEK.
