Steroids used in asthma are dangerous.

Fact

The corticosteroids used to control asthma are not the same as the often illegal steroids used by some athletes and have no effect on muscles or athletic performance. They are related to the steroids found in creams to reduce itch or inflammation of the skin. Many scientific studies have shown asthma medications to be safe over long periods of use.
