Performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) are any drugs taken by athletes to improve their individual performance. While some may argue that PEDs contribute to the spectacle of sporting events, there should still be punishments for their usage. Performance enhancing drugs affect almost every sport across the world whether the usage is prescribed drugs or illegal. Illegal PEDs are more commonly used than those that are prescribed and won’t cause danger if playing a sport. A drug used that is legal to the sports world is Chromium picolinate.
The usage of prescription drugs in sports is something that is unfair to the athletes who use their authentic talents, and also has devastating effects on the user if the abuse goes on long enough. In this speech, I will discuss how drug usage affects the sports world, what can be done to prevent it and why it is a burden to the sports world. My proposed solution to this issue is a program in which athletes would be taught that prescription drugs are not needed in order to enhance their performances. It would teach them that consuming drugs in large quantities has very negative effects, and that doing so is not fair to the other athletes. There are many advantages to this proposal.
They believe that PEDs should not be banned by the governing bodies of sports. In the article the present both arguments, they talk about the spirit of the sport and how PEDs are ruining it, they talk about the ethical conundrum of fair play and honesty. They also mention the possible health complications that could arise from PEDs, they mention all this but they also provide us with an argument against it. They counter the claim of fairness by eluding themselves to fairness they mention that sports are rigged from the beginning with an unfair advantage to the genetically superior athlete, so using PEDs is just a way of catching up. They claim that the spirit of sports is not in its fairness but in the athletes themselves.
The country of Opium isn 't controlled by El Patron anymore, and El Patron was controlling eejits to make a profit. These eejits were being exposed to harmful chemicals, weren 't given enough to eat and drink, and had their most basic right, free will taken away from them (p. 81). With the control in Matt’s hands, he can stop this mistreatment of these poor people, and find away to reverse the eejit surgery. Since the power is now in Matt’s hands, it is safer because he promised Maria’s mother and ultimately Maria, that he won 't abuse it and he loves Maria so. As a result of having no eejits, a cheap work source has disappeared, which will bring down other drug lords and distribute the wealth more evenly, which will affect the common citizens of Opium rightly.
are perfectly fine for athletes to use. I understand that athletes are going to have sore muscles and will need to use these minor drugs to help their pain. Drugs like Adderall and Ritalin I don 't agree with athletes using. Those specific drugs are meant to stable the mind and make you concentrate and focus more. I think a person who isn 't an athlete and has a problem where they need those drugs is acceptable to use.
Some steroids can be undetectable in drug testing and some leagues simply do not have strict enough rules on steroid use. This is extremely unfair to players that work unquestionably hard to be a professional athlete while some athletes are cheating through the use of steroids. It also destroys the integrity of the sport because awards, records, and championships seem to be fallacious. 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.
Such as liver failure and development of breasts. Being branded a cheat has a negative impact on not only on your career, but it also affects the individual. This is because of the public 's view of athletes as a sports people changes when they are caught cheating. Arguably being stripped of your Olympic medals has a huge effect on your personal emotions and can cause long-term psychological damage. For example,Lance Armstrong was stripped of the 7 biking titles he won as he was under the influence of performance drugs when he raced and to date has not been allowed to race again.
6). Overall, sports are fun to play and entertaining to watch. It is important that sporting events are kept fun and entertaining, and in order to do that all sports must be kept fair. If one athlete was on a performance enhancing drug that would ruin the fairness of the sport for the other competitors. In the past when athletes have been caught on illegal performance enhancing drugs they are forced to give their medals and titles back (“Stripped” par.
This allows athletes to go faster and harder during a workout, without overworking their body. Since there are more cons than pros, the benefits of these performance enhancing drugs are not worth it. Nobody wants to be known as a cheater, plus these drugs are flat out dangerous to the human body. Athletes are
Growing number of people are recognizing the need for treating drug addiction as a disease and not a crime. This is a great step towards creating reformed society. There must be support for a corruption free society, and with it, corruption-free law enforcement. We must start by creating a no tolerance for drug use. When drug thirst remains, the addicts will still be willing to pay large sums of money to obtain those drugs.
They are legally used for a good reason and when someone abuses them for the wrong reasons, than it becomes an addictive drug. Athletes who abuse them use them the wrong way. They use them to get an upper hand n competition and take advantage of what steroids can do for them, and who are willing to use them under the medical risks that come with using them. Athletes who use them like that are using to enhance muscle mass, and give them an energy boots so they can train linger and harder. They are using them fr all the wrong reasons when there are healthier ways to enhance muscle mass and get better at something without the aid of drugs.
Athletes may gain advantages over another because one may gain a better performance than the other who is playing fair. The use of taking drugs is deliberal with the goal of achieving an unfair advantage over others. However, there are those who believe taking drugs are not unfair advantages. Norman Forst, a professor and director of the medical ethics program at the university of wisconsin, quotes “There is no coherent argument to support the view that enhancing performance is unfair; if it were, we would ban coaching and training”. He says that using drugs is not unfair because it is the same thing as being coached or trained.
Sports are entertaining because they portray the pinnacle of raw human ability. They mix natural talent with hard work, and produce something normal people can connect with because the athletes playing them are somewhat normal; they are relatable to some degree. Biomedical enhancements would tarnish this element of sports: they would no longer be relatable. If the players are competing with enhancements, it takes the human element out of the game, it would make it seem more distant, less genuine, and therefore, less entertaining. Another question that would need to be answered is whether or not a completely separate enhancement-legal league would be moral.
Some players picked the wrong path by getting into drugs, like steroids. Players need to do everything naturally, and work hard to be at the top of their game. Players are taking the easy and fast way of getting to the top by using drug, but it is the wrong way. Athletes need to prove to their selves that working naturally can work if they dedicate themselves to it. Drug abuse is a serious matter and can destroy a human’s body, so as athletes or people that can help someone struggling need to take a stand against the use of
On the streets, the pricing of the Flakka drug is on par with crack. Users take it to create a state of euphoria with an energy boost. For all intents and purposes, it acts as a typical stimulant. Unfortunately, there are some rather scary side effects. The Side Effects Because of its bad side effects, the Flakka drug has become rather notorious.
