It became many athletes daily routine to dope up before a game. It use to be that steroids never had positive effects on the body now today we find that times have changed. Many believed steroids are only bad for the body but in my research it could go both ways. According to Lemouse a writer for the Health Guidance “Among other things the positive effects of steroids include increased muscle mass, tissue repair, endurance and fat loss”. There’s a lot in sports when your in competition it’s all about who’s the strongest or has the most endurance in most sports.
But if they were more strict and harsh by doing more tests and making sure no drugs have been used then that could’ve happened seven years ago and he would never of been able to win it then and steel everyone else’s chance of winning the tour. I also stated that people are using supplements for appearance more than sport which I proved wrong as in my research all of the graphs summary’s and other information all said that there is a bigger percent of people using it for sport and not appearance although this could just be the people who answered the surveys could’ve just been lying. But any how there was still a big percentage of people using these supplements just for appearance. My survey showed that 70 percent of the people take supplements and only 30 percent don’t. This is a massive number and that needs to be cut down hugely.
Picture this every athlete in sports using drugs no one depends on skill anymore everyone depends on performance enhancing drugs like adrenaline and steroids. Many athletes today use drugs to enhance their skills in all sports. This is a problem because some athletes use their own skills and are getting beaten by athletes who use drugs.Performance enhancement drugs create an unfair advantage over those athletes who choose to rely on their own skill. Banning drugs in sports can make a difference in the athlete 's health Drugs like steroids could decrease the user 's lifespan Performance enhancers, like steroids and other forms of doping have a negative effect on long term health ¨Gary Becker, PhD Professor in the Departments
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.
Many people think that athletes take steroids to get faster and build more muscle, there are some drugs that do this but most athletes use certain types of steroids to keep their bodies from shutting down so they can work harder. This may seem odd but in the Olympics almost every event is won by less than 1 percent. Say if you are in a marathon the effects of these drugs will become more obvious in the race than a 100 m sprint. If your body is able to make that extra 1 percent of energy you can out last your competition. Also, when the athlete is working out, if they can push themselves harder because of these drugs and get more out of their workout they can build that endurance and it will effect the way the competition will and based on the
“An estimated 1.6-3.8 million sports- and recreation-related concussions occur in the United States each year, although the true figure is unknown because most concussions are not recognized and reported. Players in collision sports such as American football may experience many more subconcussive impacts throughout a season and career” (Stern 460). The people at risk for concussions and CTE range from amature athletes to professional athletes and even highly trained military personnel. The cause and effects of concussions and CTE are becoming more prevalent in all levels of athletics, however athletes themselves are still slow to acknowledge them and take themselves out of the game in order to allow their brain to heal. There are millions of athletes participating in contact sports as well as military troops who are at risk for repetitive brain trauma.
As more young men and women play sports in today’s society there is a greater risk of an ACL tear; however, there is also more knowledge about the procedures to fix it as well. Warren explains, “In the 1960’s and 1970’s, ACL injuries were often missed diagnostically, treated relatively poorly, or not treated at all.” About fifty years ago no doctor had the technology or knowledge of the body that doctors have now to fix an ACL tear. Back then doctors either let the athlete play while they were still injured or they would give them a shot to feel better. In the past ACL tears were not as usual as they are now.
Athletes take the risk of getting injured not just for a couple of months but for the rest of their lives’, some athlete will not be able to afford the medication that they need in the future to cope with their injuries. Athletes are also held at a higher standard in the publics eye, they are being watch every second of every day whether it be by the general public or by the media. So Athletes sacrifice their own personal life to keep the public happy and keep kids encouraged to do the right
Katie Hill Mrs. Gallos English 3 Honors 20 March, 2018 Should Athletes Be Paid? College athletes in the United States have been struggling with the fact that their job allows them to work just as many hours a week than a regular job does, but they do not receive any income from it. This conflict amongst athletes has been around since the 1980’s and continues to be of issue to most college athletes today. Supporters say that college athletes are the one’s out their making all the money for all the coaches and universities and it is unfair that the player’s do not receive any of the income; whereas, non-supporters say that college athletes get their stay at the colleges paid for along with many other privileges that normal college students do not receive, therefore, there is no unfairness. Our society today is so focused on a money filled world that that is all these young, adult, college, athletes care about; they can not see past the real privileges they are undertaking by being an athlete.
While the athletes just show entertainment to fans. Don 't get me wrong, but paying an athlete $13.5 million for a single year is just really doing the most. There are doctors who are probably saving lives right now that will probably never make that much. Some might say that these pro athletes have spent most of their childhood playing sports, but hasn’t everyone played like one type of game or sport once in their life? I’m not trying to say that I don’t think that they should not get paid at all, but they shouldn’t be getting paid that much.
States start programs that require welfare recipients to take a drug test and the programs end up costing them up to 1 million or, even more, depending on the number of welfare recipients that reside in that state. According to Time.com during the four months, Florida drug tested welfare recipients only 2.6% of applicants tested positive. Drug testing results do not justify the cost of the test and is using money that could be used for something much more important. States are having to pay for an expensive drug test while getting less positive tests and more negative tests. The states that are
