In this provocative TEDxChapmanU talk, Frank challenges the notion that the use of steroids in the athletic world should be condemned and actually suggests we celebrate the way steroids allow the human body to function at its fullest potential. Frank explains how steroids are a natural drug, can be controlled, and can be compared to “steroids” found within the human body.

About TEDx:

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
