(CNN) - More teens are using muscle enhancing products.
That's the finding of a
study published today in the medical journal "Pediatrics".
The study found
about one out of three teen boys reported using protein powders to build muscle
mass. Six percent admitted to using steroids and two out of three said
they changed their diet to increase muscle tone or size.
Among girls, about
21 percent said they used protein powders and shakes. Nearly five percent
said they had used steroids.
Researchers say the number of teens reporting muscle enhancing behavior is substantially higher than it was in previous years.
