LOL. I found that article originally. I was at a local restaurant picking up some food, and looked on the counter and there it was. I thought it would be nice for the boards.

Over an athlete that busts his ass for years and has to overcome some of the greatest adversity to work his way to being the best?Originally Posted by drei
I don't understand this comparison.
"One of Fost's favorite examples of what he calls "the hypocrisy and the moral incoherence of the anti-drug hysteria movement" is that of erythropoietin, or EPO, which physiologically replicates the effects of training at altitude or sleeping in a low-oxygen tent. But the latter two are approved of, while EPO use is banned."
Training at altitude and low oxygen tents are natural. I don't think EPO is considered natural. Am I missing this guys point here?
I find it hard to believe that any world class athlete, pharmacetically enhanced or natural, didn't bust their ass for years to get where they are.Originally Posted by KCPreki11

I couldn't possibly agree more... that, for 1), It is preposterous to mention "androgenic steroids" in the same breath with recreational drugs.. The two groups of drugs have only their illicit status in common. Well, androgenic steroids too, like rec drugs, make a fantastic scapegoat candidate. Nothing excuses irresponsibility quite like the 'drug problems' card, just like A Get Out of Jail Free Pass, slap it down and the heat is off. Drugs are always something that people will rally around (against, actually). Recall a year ago when Rush limbaugh was exposed for painkiller abuse.. which, poetically, went down right after his "lock'em and throw away the key" comments regarding drug users..
McCain is just a clown... Following Bush's lead, speak out about steroids.. Absolutely, under no circumstances should the issue of AAS be addressed by these elected idiots simply because there have to be 50 more important topics to talk about before "steroid" is even uttered..
I have said for a years that anabolic steroids could not be as unhealthy as cigarrettes. Now, seven or so years ago when I said it, it was more of a gut feeling than anything else.. I really wasn't prepared to debate it. However, with the knowledge I have picked up over the years from cancer research, beyond a shadow of a doubt, I can say that cigarette smoking is more dangerous than wreckless anabolic steroid use.. and challenge anyone who disagrees.
