Number of steroid seizures trebled last year

The Health Products Regulatory Authority seized 109,006 of the substances last year, compared to 38,049 in 2015.

Some adults and teens use the illegal drugs as they want to improve how well they play sports or how they look.

The HPRA director of compliance, John Lynch, said anabolic steroids accounted for 16% of products detained last year, a “significant” increase compared to 2015.
