"Our philosophy on drugs is that we do not approve in any way the use of illegal substances for enhancing performance in sports"
However we feel that the reader of these library articles should be exposed to the impact that such drugs can have in one's body and mind. Ignorance is not an excuse.
Drugs in Sport
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The use of banned performance-enhancing drugs in sport(s) is commonly referred to as doping, particularly by those organizations that regulate competitions. The use of drugs to enhance performance is considered unethical by most international sports organizations and especially the International Olympic Committee, although ethicists have argued that it is little different from the use of new materials in the construction of suits and sporting equipment, which similarly aid performance and can give competitors an unfair advantage over others. The reasons for the ban are mainly the alleged health risks of performance-enhancing drugs, the equality of opportunity for athletes, and the alleged exemplary effect of "clean" ("doping-free") sports for the public.
