Steroid Use By Middle-School Girls?

From Slate's Explainer column:
On Monday, the Associated Press reported that, according to "various government and university studies," 5 percent of high-school girls and 7 percent of middle-school girls have tried anabolic steroids. House Government Reform Committee Chairman Tom Davis repeated the statistics at Wednesday's hearing on steroid use in the National Football League. Are teenage girls really that into steroids?

I think that poll is highly suspicious. That's 1 in 20. Unless you count ethinyl estradiol as an "anabolic steroid."
