All athletes should be required to take a drug test. Performance enhancing drugs are restricted for athletes to use. Playing sports in high school is a privilege. Using drugs is a violation of the athletic program that all students should follow. Students should be tested for all drugs in there system at any time. If they want to illegally make themselves better then that is their choice to make, and if they wish to ruin their
Athletes use of performance enhancing drugs has become all too common in today’s society. With many athletes testing positive for doping, sports are becoming tarnished with athletes trying to gain an unfair advantage on their competitors. Although players are tested often for such drugs, there are still many loopholes and some drugs are not detected by current systems. So what would cause an athlete to put their body at risk to gain just a slight edge on their competitor? Sports should be a test of real skill, not artificial skills given by doctors. With the numerous side effects performance enhancing drugs have, they are simply not safe for anyone to take, let alone a professional athlete. Taking performance enhancing drugs is detrimental
The year 1998 was considered to be one of the most exciting years of baseball. Mark McGwire, first baseman for the Saint Louis Cardinals, and Sammy Sosa, outfielder for the Chicago Cubs were teeing off Home Runs in the midwest sky. Both Sosa and McGwire were chasing Roger Maris’s seemingly “unbeatable” record. In 1961, Maris hit 61 Home Runs, setting the record for most home runs in a single season. Throughout the years, players came close, but were unable to break the seemingly invincible record, until the 1998 season. Then, not only did one player surpass the 61 home run mark, but two players did: McGwire ended the season with 70 hits; while Sosa ended with 66. This was an exciting time for the MLB, 1998
This article is written by Dr. David R. Mottram, B.Pharm., Ph.D., F.R.Pharm.S. who is an Emeritus Professor of Pharmacy Practice at Liverpool John Moores University in Liverpool, UK. This article tackles multiple subjects on the topic of performance enhancing drugs. Firstly, it tackles the many reasons why athletes would use performance enhancing drugs. It dives deep separating the use of PEDs by athletes to several categories from therapeutic use to treat medical conditions to recreational use to most important of all performance enhancing use. The article tries explain how an athlete can get PEDs for therapeutic use, it also explains the limitations of this process. It also tries to explain that the reasons that may sway athletes to take illegal PEDs are very complex, these factors range from peer pressure to misleading information on PEDs to many other factors. In addition, the article also examines the dangers of the use of PEDs from a health stand point and a professional stand point. This article I believe provides valuable information for my research as I am trying to formulate the many reasons why an athlete would use performance enhancing
Drugs are a big issue in the sports industry. Many athletes will take performance-enhancing drugs, such as steroids, to help them play better. These types of drugs should not be allowed because it gives the player a greater advantage over other players who are playing with their natural ability. This issue could be solved if there was monthly drug testing and if the drug was not so easy to get ahold of. Many major league baseball players are getting caught using performance-enhancing drugs. Mostly power hitters and pitchers will use these steroids.
Every couple of weeks or so, you hear stories of professional athletes having their sport taken away from them, because of the drive to be the biggest, strongest and best they could be. Due to this drive, they begin to use Performance Enhancing Drugs. PED’s are a danger to athletes and their health, and they should remain banned. Some of these dangers are cardiovascular difficulties, dangerous side effects, and illness in the liver.
For years, the use of performance-enhancing drugs has haunted all levels of sport, baseball taking the majority of the publicity. Many have lost sight of the fact that baseball players are not the only athletes that face this life threatening addiction. Due to the amount of padding they have to wear, football players can easily disguise their size therefore keeping them from receiving scrutiny from the public. This has allowed more and more players to look to PEDs in order to gain an edge over their opponents. The issue spans to not only the professional level, but the high school and collegiate divisions as well. Because the National Football League sits on a higher platform, they bring in an exceptional amount of money compared to that
Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) have been used in sports for many years. The common term for it is doping. It is one of the most important issues among professional athletes today. Doping should not be allowed in professional sports. The use of performance-enhancing drugs creates a disadvantage for the athletes that don't use PEDs since they will not perform as well as the athletes that used the drugs during the game or competition. Also, when drugs are used it takes the human effort away from sports where athletes have trained hard.
In order to better understand all aspects of steroid use throughout professional level sports, the counter side must be addressed. In many sports leagues we can see that steroid policies are being taken control of because so many professional athletes are being penalized for taking PEDs. The MLB is now issuing three times as many drug tests compared to 2003 and these tests detect steroid use up to two weeks prior to the testing. The NFL drug tests every player
I found more research on Chittom, Lynn-nore and Ann Griswold. "Counterpoint: Performance Enhancing Drugs Should Be Banned." Points of View: Steroids,. This tells me why we should ban steroid use to people who are misusing them. The research also tells me that athletes are misusing steroids and that they should be banned. The reason why is too many athletes are getting arrested and dying from using too much steroids. I think they should get banned and the athletes should perform to their natural ability. I also think that the athletes would perform better without use of steroids. So therefore the research and I think that performance enhancing drugs and steroids should be banned.
Performance enhancement drugs used by professional athletes who strive, or want to separate themselves from mediocrity and desire super stardom these athletes should not be penalized. Furthermore, athletes who are willing to take the journey down the path of using foreign substance on their bodies they should be allowed. Therefore professional athletes, functioning on their own recognizance, they have the monetary means, and it’s their body which is their own property. Consequently no athlete, or professional organization sets out to finish second or doesn’t attempt to win the highest honors in their respective sport. The athlete hands should not be tied because others haven’t
Picture this every athlete in sports using drugs no one depends on skill anymore everyone
Many people argue that athletes should be able to enhance their performance while others disagree. From a neutral point of view, there are advantages and disadvantages of using PEDs. The advantage, obviously, is increased performance, wether that comes from faster recovery periods or increased oxygen retention o and multiple other methods. This gives an advantage over competitors that do not take drugs. Disadvantages include side effects, which are numerous and can cause life long damage to abusers (the major issue with the use of drugs), unfair advantages and can cause disqualification from competitions and tarnishing of reputations. For example, Lance Armstrong was stripped of titles, banned from the sport and his reputation was destroyed. For some athletes, the short term goal is more important than the
