Body building champ. Rich actor. Ex governor. Boned bone bag and ugly maid. Best medical care.
Mostly good it seems.

With his family history he would have likely had multiple heart operations down the line regardless, but im sure that taking some juice back in the day didn't help.  I hate the effect that steroids have on the world of fitness overall, but back in the 60's and 70's They didn't know that they mess up your heart down the line.  Taking oral steroids along with vitamins and protein was just par for the course.

Even now, I marvel that there are any bodybuilders from the 90's-onward that are alive past 40.  50 years ago it was one or two drugs; now its common to take a lot of different ones, plus GH, plus insulin to get that HUUUUUGE size.  There are definitely guys who lived through it without conking out with an exploded heart. How did Dorian and Ronnie survive? no idea. but some of their fellow competitors weren't so lucky, with kidney failure, heart attacks etc.    I still marvel at bodybuilders simply for the fact that they're taking such a huge risk with their lives to do it, and the sheer size a human being can get to... but I can't say that its a smart way to live.

I can't imagine how many times he heard that joke from doctors and nurses, and had to pretend laugh laugh each time like he never heard it before.

I wonder how much of his heart is original human heart tissue and how much is metal designed by Cyberdyne Systems....
