For several years in the mid-1980s, NBC broadcast coverage of the Ms. Olympia contest on their Sportsworld program. The taped footage was telecast months after the contest, and was usually used as secondary material to fill out programs featuring events such as boxing. Typically, the broadcasts included only the top several women. Nevertheless, Rachel McLish and some of her leading competitors were receiving national TV coverage. McLish authored two New York Times best-selling books - "Flex Appeal" (1984) and "Perfect Parts" (1987) – and was also starring in action films. The popularity was growing and women were being empowered and inspired to train. In 1983, the top prize money for the women bodybuilding was $50,000, equal to that of male bodybuilding.
If LVH from AAS use is nothing to worry about, is there a downside to my low dose TE OR TPP/NPP year round? I know that there are some individuals that have to be on some type of high-dose AAS 24/7 for many years and even decades, examples being Jose Canseco, Hulk Hogan, and Superstar Billy Graham, with each of these individuals not having any type of heart related ailment that I am currently aware of. On the other hand though, the autopsy report of Eddie Guerrero noted that one of his reasons for death was acute heart failure, so I don’t know if this may have been attributed to AAS induced LVH or not.
