If you think of cellular receptors as switches, hormones act as switch activators. The problem with abusing anabolic hormones is that in addition to switching on muscle cell hypertrophy these hormones are distributed throughout the body and will also activate switches on other body organs and glands leading to a cascade of potentially negative unwanted physiological and biochemical adaptations.

For example, activation or inhibition of neurotransmitters can impact mood ranging from depression to uncontrollable rage, activation of liver enzymes may contribute to high cholesterol arterial plaques and heart or kidney disease and hypertrophy of the heart muscle itself can lead to heart failure.
