I am sure steroids played a role, but I am willing to bet more than half were major drug addicts when it comes pain killers and recreational drugs

What are you considering "early?"
Average life span?

Damn, I didn't know Luke Wood and Atwood were dead.  Haven't been too up to date on the forums.
I think some deaths are not directly related to steroids...especially when the guy is past 50, but many are a direct cause.
Let's face it, heavy roid use in bbing is a complete contradiction to a healthy lifestyle.  Most of these guys have a drug problem and compete to validate their drug use.
"I have a comp coming up, so I'm on XYZ...you know, for the competition....it's what you have to do to compete."
Well...don't compete then fool. ;)  So dumb.

I don't view bbers as "gladiators" or doing something noble and impressive....it's the same as a heroin addict overdosing...no different.  You can actually bodybuild without drugs...go figure.
Smarten up.

The big problem seems to be over-use and abuse. I think that small amounts of steroids won't hurt, and you can make tons of gains with that above being natural but so many guys tend to cut down on working-out and add more steroids each time to the point where they are taking huge amounts daily.

My uncle took 1 dianabol pill each morning for 15 years, without any health problems, and is now 55 years old and about 210 ripped with a 6 pack and the biggest forearms I've ever seen on anyone personally. 18 inches at least.

Saying that Andreas Muenzer died from "heart failure" is like saying the Titanic sank from "ice cube exposure."

Andreas munzer died of a new condition at the time: total internal organ meltdown.

Benazizza was due to severe dehydration i believe.
