Should Steroids and HGH Be Allowed?
I know what you’re thinking: has Lena lost it? I am by no means condoning the use of performance enhancing drugs in sports but I just read an interesting opinion piece about how, perhaps the whole subject of steroid abuse is exaggerated. Norman Fost over at ABC News claims that the only reason steroids are unfair to use in sports is because they are not available to all athletes. He compares it to the use of greasy swimsuits by U.S. swimmers. Some how, I don’t think so.
Wearing special shoes or greasing up a bathing suit in one thing. Popping pills and injecting yourself with hormones is another. One has proven ill effects. The other is trivial, much like wearing a lucky pair of socks.
Interesting, nonetheless. What do you think of Fost’s argument?Tags: athletes, Drug, drugs, health, hormone, sports, steroid, steroids
