27. Steroid expert sets stage for girlfriend testimony
San Francisco Chronicle / 3-25-11

Steroid and human growth hormone abuse can cause acne, sexual dysfunction, an enlarged head and other ailments that prosecutors say afflicted former Giants slugger Barry Bonds, a steroids expert testified Thursday.

Larry Bowers, a scientist with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, was the government's third witness in the perjury trial of Bonds, who is accused of lying under oath when he denied using banned drugs from the BALCO steroids lab.


SUBHEAD: Ex-girlfriend to testify

Prosecutors told U.S. District Judge Susan Illston that one of their next witnesses will be Kimberly Bell, Bonds' former girlfriend.

Bell has told investigators that in 1999, Bonds admitted to her that he was using steroids. After that, by her account, Bonds' body and psyche underwent dramatic changes: He became significantly more muscular, suffered occasional bouts of impotence and flareups of back acne, and had bursts of violent temper.
