: One of the side effects of juice is epiphyseal closure: stunting of growth.
: I'd like to know how long does it take to happen. Is it that just one cycle of Deca can
: cause it, or does it take longer. I ask because I'm 31, but until recently
: I was for sure still growing.
: If Deca stunts bone development in lenght, bones will grow in thickness, right?
: After all, Deca is prescribed for osteoporosis.
: Can anyone throw some light on this?
: Teroi Bolik
You're still growing at 31? You should be in the book of world records because you must be over 7 feet tall by now!
Bones grow in density, not thickness. The only place they can grow is at the ends! Osteoporosis is decrease of bone 'density', not thickness! Anarchy in the USA!
