PEDs in Professional Sports

By January 28, 2013

Follow me on:

From professional baseball player Sammy Sosa to cycling legend Lance Armstrong, athletes at the top of their profession continue to take performance enhancing drugs. But what drives them to do it? Fame? Fortune? Frustration?

About.com interviewed three sports medicine professionals who have experience working with athletes at the top of their game. They discussed their beliefs on PEDs in professional sports, if athletes have reached their limits of accomplishment without artificial intervention, and more.

Some people argue that PEDs are dangerous and provide an unfair competitive advantage. Others say it's hypocritical to allow some supplements and ban others. Share your thoughts: Should performance enhancing drugs be allowed in professional sports?
