It seems a whole lot of internet “know it alls” and couch doctors, are claiming steroid use, in some form or another is the reason for Brock Lesnars illness. Whether or not Brock has actually used steroids in the past or currently, is not clear, nor is that the point I am after with this article, so I am not going to speculate on that. I will leave that up to Brock to decide to reveal.
Dr. Johnny Benjamin is MMAjunkie.com’s medical columnist and consultant. Benjamin posted a informative and sobering article shedding some light on the subject. Benjamin writes:
“I could find absolutely no credible, peer-reviewed medical literature that drew a correlation between anabolic-steroid use and diverticulitis”.
Well that should be enough proof to lay all those previous speculations to rest. You can check out the rest of Dr. Benjamins’ article by clicking here.
