So therefore the research and I think that performance enhancing drugs and steroids should be banned. My paragraph 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.
EPO is also used to treat other medical conditions like anemia so if a athletes is facing a medical condition I agree with the use but I do not believe in athletics using any drugs to enhance their ability to compete. I think it is important for the athletics to be tested on a regular basis but unfortunately like EPO this drug is out of your system within days. If drugs are found in the system of athletics they should be removed from competition. I believe that athletics should exercise, eat right, and train to
The side effects of steroids are serious consequences that athletes face in sports because the harmful damages being done to their health is a painful reminder that cheating is the wrong way to go. Typically the athletes using the steroids are unaware of how dangerous the effects are to the body. Often enough, it is known that when athletes use steroids they can not control their raging anger and it leads them to participate in violent acts of behavior. In addition, steroids can interfere with the immune system by creating blood clots and having possible heart attacks. Zev Chafets states “In a rage, they formed a posse to drive the users out of the game,” and “Purist say that steroids alter the game” (22).
There are a lot of physical problems than can come from performance enhancing drugs. In the article #2, it is written : “ There has been a spate of high-school-athlete suicides in the past decade associated with steroid abuse; teens are particularly at risk because the pattern of cycling on and off these drugs messes with their hormone levels, leading to mood and severe depression” Steroid. Secondly, people are taking performance enhancing drugs because they want to win titles and medals but they forget the consequences when they get caught. “Lance Armstrong has no place in cycling; he deserves to be forgotten in cycling” said Pat McQuaid, the president of the cycling union ( Macur). In the following paragraph, McQuaid continues to say that Armstrong’s team had
The use of performance-enhancing drugs, or PED’s, in sports has been a significant cause of athlete ridicule over the past several years in the United States of America and throughout the world. PED’s are considered a banned substance in nearly every athletic competition that is regulated at the highest level. In America, the National Football League (NFL), National Basketball Association (NBA), and Major League Baseball (MLB) are the largest professional sports companies, all of which have PED’s as a banned substance. Further, the players face significant fines, suspensions, and other penalties if they abuse the respective PED policies for each league. In this paper I will discover the history of PED use in sports, the side effects and uses,
However, after serving two years of the ban they will be eligible to try and be reinstated through arbitration processes. Ultimately, steroid has had a negative effect on every aspect of the game. From the players, to the fans, and to the sport. Steroids have negative effects on the total outlook of baseball which could lead to spectators to not buy tickets to games. Baseball needs to be cleaned up so players are using natural talent they build up through practice and hard work.
Although the cage supporters have good points the visors are still taking the cake. If the players have visors on they will be able to fight atracting more fans and crowds to games. Fighting is penalized with a five-minute major and a game disqualification, meaning that the offending player is out of that game and the next game. If college players had visors they would have to change that rule so players wouldn’t be kicked out of the next game. since NHL player don’t have this rule then the college students wouldn’t either.
To explain, athletes who take performance enhanced drugs take away another athlete’s deserving prize money. Therefore, letting athletes take performance enhanced drugs makes them a thief to other regular athletes. In conclusion, prize money will be taken away from regular athletes if athletes who continue to use performance enhanced drugs use
Take, for example, a person involved in sports. You have person A who can take performance enhancing drugs, buy extra protein powders, and have a personal trainer; then you have person B who has the same talent level as person A, but cannot afford extra protein powders or a personal trainer and does not take any performance enhancing drugs. When it comes time to try out for the team, person A has a clear advantage over person B. This will lead to more college scholarship opportunities and perhaps even professional opportunities. This is unfair to person B because they had the same talent, just could not afford the cheat methods that person A used.
Professional athletes around the nation are using their status to protest against racial inequality. People say that athletes should be allowed to protest the way they are for events taking place today. Professional athletes should not be able to use their status to protest the events happening in the world. Professional athletes sometimes take the protesting way to far. For example, protesting during a country's national anthem is not directed just at the people it is directed at that country.
I do not believe that steroids should be legalized in competition because it would give an unfair advantage to those who choose to use the drug. For the athletes that choose no to use the drug, they are more likely to lose. Steroids are already used for what they need to be used for legally. Currently, in medicine, they are a medication used to treat certain conditions. They are legally used for a good reason and when someone abuses them for the wrong reasons, than it becomes an addictive drug.
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
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.
Kids have been consuming steroids in some schools and that the state supreme courts haven’t been taking the drug test serious enough. If you get caught with anabolic steroids you could get a 250,000 fine and you could go to jail. Side effects of steroids is acne, blurred vision, easy bruising, difficulty sleeping, high blood pressure, increased appetite, weight gain, and increased growth of body hair. Steroids in Sports shouldn’t be allowed because there are laws and health consequences that could potentially make you get kicked off of a team, make you end up in the hospital, or even kill you. So schools should start having more drug test and taking them more intent.
Drug Abuse Some people will do anything to win at any cost. Drug use is not beneath them. Although some athletes use steroids, they should not be allowed in sports because it is considered cheating, it is associated with violence, and these are health risks. Steroid use is considered cheating because it gives an unfair advantage. It increases stamina, muscle, enlargement of breast, shrinkage of testicles, deeper voice, etc.
