"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Former Pro Bodybuilder Scott Wilson passed away at age 67. His pics were used in some Of Dr. Darden's books as an example of having the widest shoulders.

BBs on steroids don't live very old. Maybe the quality of life is better... you feel more masculine and younger, but there's a price.

When someone succumbs to some disease whatever it may be it's sometimes hard to tell exactly what prompted it.It may not be a easily detectable direct cause but something that could contribute to a weakening of the system that other wise might fight off a disease better. I do know that anytime you ingest anything toxic to the body be it drugs, alcohol, to much sugar, pollution or any of a dozen or more toxic elements in the food we eat and floating around in the air or beaming down from the sun it takes a tole on the body that may or may not show up to kill you eventually depending on your genetics and it's ability to deal with such substances.

Steroids are never a contributing factor, such as Sergio's liver failure. Maybe the drug use had no effect on an issue dealing with the skin, although drug use affects the body in general and on many levels. Hypothesizing.

These days, body builders use spray-on tanners. But back in the day, didn't they spend a lot of time in the sun? That would be a known risk factor.

Reg Park also died from melanoma.

I was thinking the same.

Either way, the massive quantities of food, steroids, excessive tanning, etc. are anything but healthy.

I read recently according to Rich Piana's autopsy report, his heart and liver was more than twice the weight of a normal person's.

i had relatives who lived a long life (80s and 90s) sucking on cancer sticks all their lives
i have known others that were drunk too and lived into their 70s
i had a friend who ate healthy, never took drugs or smoked and died of cancer in his 40s
i had two lady friends who were vegetarians and died of breast cancer in their 50s
i know some sun worshippers living in their 80s
as for steroids, arnold, franco, louie, drasin are living somewhat healthy in their late 60s and 70s

i guess you could say, it all depends on the hand we are dealt

but in the end, we all will be resting in peace

Yes Steroids are never a contributing factor, it was just incidental that after 50 years or steroid use Sergios liver failed, ha ha! It is funny how quick people are to discount the effects of steroids because it can't be unequivocally proved. My cousin who died of lung cancer didn't die from 3 packs a day, it was probably some asbestos he got exposed to somewhere, ha ha,

As much as you don't agree with what pro BB's do , you can't put them in there with Piana.

He was a science experiment gone wrong. Everyone thought the stuff he tried was nuts. I doubt the doctors could even begin to try and figure it out.

Christo67 ;

What are you and Hit4Me posting something respectful
about someone who just died ???

This is a HIT forum, if you can't say something rotten about someone who just passed , don't say anything at all.

Go back and look at some of the other comments and follow that lead from now on .... if you want to 'fit in' around here ... lol

On a positive side Scott Wilson was the kind of bodybuilder I think most of us should strive to look like instead of these over inflated Michelin man hulks of today. Broad shouldered and tough looking!

R.I.P. Scott Wilson.

Yes imagine the looks he must have gotten whilst walking down the street with those shoulders. I also remember Dr. D saying his forearms being the most impressive (though not the biggest) he'd ever seen as well.

Sure there are. There are countless 275-300+ pound bodybuilders inducing themselves with God knows what including probably every Pro at the higher levels. All you have to do is look at them and know.

But, look how many of these guys have dropped off like flies in their 30s and 40s.

Not to change the subject but like many on here I've always been obsessed with big arms etc. The other day while shopping there was this guy walking around the store in a tank top with these huge arms exposed.The rest of him wasn't as big. At first I was amazed at how big they were but the more I kept seeing him walking down the aisles it became apparent that he sort of stood out like a sore thumb. All I could think of was ok, you workout,you built up your arms so now you gotta show them off.It was an odd feeling.

I'm no competitor, but spent plenty of time in the sun in the 80s and 90s. When I was a kid, we didn't know what sunblock was and I got some really bad burns.

Starting in 2002 or so, I've had about 4 or 5 Squamous or Basal Cell growths removed, before they could morph into worse things...Needless to say, my sun days have been over for a while.

Scott Wilson: I always liked that guy. He was the Real HIT Deal. I'll dispute any claims that he did more than maybe the late 70s/early 80s minimum of steroids.

RIP Sir!!

Not that it matters but I liked how the guy looked as well but I have no data to support if or how much Steroids he may or may not have taken. To dispute claims I assume you have some real data?

I think you're getting this one backwards, Scotto. The onus is on the people making the claims! If you're going to sully someone's name for no good reason, you at least need to have some concrete facts.

He had a similar looking physique to the Mentzer brothers...shared genetics I suppose.

I don't think I got anything backwards, you claimed you'd dispute the allegations so I assumed you had some facts to back you up, if you have no more facts than the one claiming otherwise you have nothing to dispute with. I can only guess what Wilson may have done . I'm guessing he followed the Larry Scott mode of moderate steroids not the Coleman injest everything style but who the hell knows? Maybe someone out there knows?

I agree with your guess. As far as the rest, I have eyeballs. And they work very well. Someone would have to have real proof (like a journal/diary or sworn proof) to sway me.

Despite your opinion, the initial burden-of-proof still lies with the accuser.

I guess it doesn't really matter what Wilson died from, he's dead and that's a loss.Something to think about is how differently folks respond to steroids,peanuts,Twinkies the sun or any other things that we may be exposed to.Some people balloon up on very little steroids and some have little reaction.It's very possible that in some people small doses of an element can bring about an adverse reaction and some can eat every toxic thing around and still flourish.Taking any kind of muscle building drug is gambling.If you are the type who likes to gamble with their life go for it, if not better stay clear of the stuff.
