Couple of days after publishing the article, I got a mail from actor Chris Levine- reviewing the article and appreciating it. He asked me for an interview regarding Steroid Abuse as he has been a Steroid Abuser in his late teens/early twenties.”

He said, “I did an interview to him to address the Steroid Abuse in practical sense. The interview I did through online mode and got that published on an international website for the first time. As of today the interview is published in many local newspapers and other international websites.”

The interview has got international recognition and turned into stories at global level.

Whole Anabolic Life Team has acknowledged and appreciated it including the Director – Landon Williams, Producer – Cameron Barsanti , Co-producer- Chris Levine, Deevin Reeve  and Executive Producer – Sara Mairose of the movie.
