The summer season is the anabolics season, says professor Google

In the summer season, when the swimming pools are open and the beaches are crowded, the interest in anabolic steroids is at its peak. This appears from data compiled by Google Trends, health scientists from the University of Glasgow report in International Journal on Drug Policy.

Study
The researchers used Google Trends data to see how often English internet users had searched for information about anabolic steroids from 2011 to 2015.

Results
The five most popular search terms that the English typed into Google were Anavar, Trenbolone, Stanozolol, Dianabol and Sustanon. Lees popular search terms were Nandrolone, Boldenone, Masteron, Metenolone and Testosterone Enanthate.

The figure below shows when exactly the most popular search terms were typed. The graphs are clear: the interest in anabolic steroids peaks in the summer months. Moreover, over the years the interest appears to be increasing.

Conclusion
The results of the research give cause for concern, the researchers write.

"Trenbolone was traditionally considered high risk and shunned by experienced bodybuilders in the 1980s and its rise in internet search popularity may therefore warrant further investigation. Brennan et al. highlight Trenbolone as a particular concern, with over 4500 websites regarding its unsanctioned use, limited medical literature and a presumed low risk of criminal conviction due to its veterinarian legitimacy in some jurisdictions."

"The large number of searches occurring for Dianabol and Anavar may have significance with regards to current health service provision. These are both oral compounds, potentially more hepatotoxic, and may act as gateway drugs to injectable steroids. It is worth noting that internet searches are far less likely to be met with sanctioned harm reduction or health promotion messages with such websites being substantially overwhelmed by pro-steroid content."

"The presence of fluctuating internet search volume of individual compounds, in the context of a perceived rise in AAS use overall, may be an area worth further investigation. While it is not possible to draw conclusions on how search interest relates to levels of use, time trend variation in levels of interest in different AAS may gives some indication of what is occurring within the wider AAS using community."
