Why is this harmful
Why Is This Harmful?

  • New technology = new competition

  • Some drugs, such as HGH, are undetectable through testing

  • Inconsistent persecutions

  • We are mandating what athletes can do with their bodies, when their bodies earn their paycheck


An alternative policy
An Alternative “Policy”

  • Educated physicians monitor the intake of performance enhancing drugs by athletes

  • By studying the athletes physical make-up an attempt can be made at a healthy “diet” in order to give the athletes safe benefits

  • Penalties would be personal within the organization


Benefits of the change
Benefits of the Change
