The stories of athletes that use steroids are endless. Athletes will continue to have health (adjective) issues until the stop using steroids. As stated there are a variety of consequences for athletes that use steroids. By some athletes cheating the game will never be fair for the other athletes. The use of steroids (noun) is not worth the cost of getting caught cheating, risking one 's health, or the consequences.
In this era of sports, There are many cheaters in sports because they want to be the best out of everyone. The most common cheating in sports is when athletes take steroids to dope in sports, to increase performance in sports. Did you know in the Summer Olympics of 2016, 100 Russian athletes were banned from the Summer Olympics due to doping in sports. Doping in sports is when athletes use medications that are not allowed to take to improve their performance in sports. The most common type of doping is stimulants to overcome stress and challenges that athletes have.
Youths sustain head hits very often and these can be very serious. Youths are at higher risks of going to hospitals and having long term injuries because their brains are not fully developed. This shows that youths should not be able to play tackle football due to the high risk of injuries. Therefore youths shouldn’t play
Initial Literature Review Although steroids may be used by professional body builders to enhance their physique, however their use is also considered illicit, not only by students but by sporting professionals. This is why non-medical use of anabolic steroids is illegal and banned by most, if not all, major sports organizations. Still, some athletes persist in taking them, causing an unfair advantage. But beyond the issues of popularity or legality is the fact that anabolic steroids may cause serious long term health and psychological side effects.
Concussions are nothing to take lightly, brain damage not only sidelines you from the game, but may also sideline you from specific activities, or daily tasks. Researchers are examining equipment in order to find out whether or not they are eligible to design a high quality helmet in order to protect the head from a high speed impact. The more force that the helmet can absorb, the less impact the brain will withstand when the hit is given
Even Though athletes bust their butts playing sports, they also don 't need that much money in a salary. Most athletes spend their money on drugs and on alcohol that could hurt them. They end up going to jail after they go out and buy them drugs. One of the most important reasons why athletes should not earn a huge salary is because with all of the money they will buy drugs.
People might argue otherwise but taking drugs to better your performance is sports can relate to a student cheating on a test without even studying for it, while other students put in the effort to study hard so they can try to earn a good grade. The use of cheating to benefit is unfair to those who put in the time and effort. However, Performance enhancing drugs have been around where it was used by the greeks in ancient times, sadly the effects of ped hasn 't changed, and athletes to this day still use it too better their performance. For example, Barry Bonds was one of baseballs best hitters ever, putting up video game stats and holding records. Unfortunately Bonds was in the 2007 scandal of using
Some of these ways are loss of self control and impulsiveness which both relate to Ishmael, because he had no feelings self-control and impulsiveness because he had no consideration of what could happen to him during the war or what he was doing to other people. The text says “Drugs are chemicals because of their chemical structures, can affect the body in many different ways. Some drugs can even change a person's body and brain in ways that last long after the person has stopped taking drugs”. This quote is important because it proves how drugs change and it tells the affects people. Now I will show how Ishmael was traumatised.
Van Mill then argues that most ways to enhance performances are unavailable to some. For instance psychologists, dietitians, massage therapists and skin-tight swimsuits are unaffordable to some, since not every athlete is equally wealthy. The second argument he takes up, is that performance enhancing drugs are unhealthy. His counter argument here is first of all that performance enhancing drugs are not particularly dangerous.
Our society has helped create a definition of dieting that is not only harmful to the body but also does not work. The proper definition of a diet would be the food and drink a person consumes daily and the mental and physical circumstances connected to eating. The public’s definition of a diet is to restrict oneself to small amounts or special kinds of food in order to lose weight. Those who engage in this sort of dieting begin with the wrong mentality. They believe by undertaking a diet they will lose weight and keep it off, when in reality most people fail with diets.
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.
Steroids come with side-effects only when they are abused. When they are abused, they work in a detrimental manner and can ruin an individual psychologically, physically, and emotionally. Physically it can damage the liver because it detoxifies the body. Over use of it will break down the liver until it doesn’t work. Other side-effects of abuse of steroids,”… liver tumors, jaundice, fluid retention, deepened voice, cessation of the menstrual cycle, growth of facial hair in women, impaired judgment stemming from feelings of invincibility, baldness, and reduced sperm count in
The severity of concussions are not taken seriously enough due to the fact of cheap equipment being used, and because of the lack of proper diagnosis and unclear recovery process that can be linked to long term affects from concussions. Cheap equipment has been proven to lead and cause concussions and other head injuries. The NFL and Riddell are in a lawsuit right now because of not providing the proper equipment for players. The family of Junior Seau is suing the NFL and Riddell because the death of Junior was linked to a disease caused by multiple concussions and head blows (Shyr). During football season I suffered a concussion due to a cheap helmet that didn’t have enough padding and air in it.
Not only can steroids affect players, but it can also tarnish the name of The Hall of Fame. To me, The Hall of Fame is about hard work, commitment, and dedication. So why let steroids users in The Hall of Fame now? No one
Does taste supersede health? Despite the rising popularity of sports energy drinks, people do not understand natural caffeine has many more benefits than synthetic caffeine; therefore, drinking synthetic will only harm individuals in the long run. It is common for people to not know the distinction between the two types of caffeine. Natural and synthetic are the two forms. Synthetic caffeine is produced in a lab along with many other chemicals, mainly by the synthesis of urea.
