Ironically, it was probably the islands' famous isolation that led to this tourist boom. As recently as the 1970s, visiting the Galapagos meant hitching a ride on a freight tanker and then spending a week in a forgotten Eden. Such stories fueled the Galapagos Islands' rise to the top of lists with titles like "10 Places to See Before you Die," and suddenly a whole bunch of people seemed to be worrying that they were gonna die very soon. In the last 15 years, tourists have flocked to the Galapagos. And they've brought all sorts of new and incompatible species with them.
Some people "cycle" their steroid doses. This means they take multiple doses of steroids over a period of time, stop for a period, then start up again. "Stacking" means taking two or more different anabolic steroids. Other steroid users may "pyramid" their steroids, starting with a low dose and gradually increasing the dose, frequency, or number of anabolic steroids taken, then tapering off to complete a cycle. Users believe that stacking enhances the effects of each individual drug, pyramiding allows the body to get used to high doses of steroids, and steroid-free periods help the body recuperate from the drugs. There is no scientific evidence to support any of these claims.
