    PED

    So an intresting study on PEDs

    http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0504082145.htm

    Doping is damaging the image of sport without benefiting athletes' results, according to new research. Researchers collated sporting records (including Olympic and world records) of male and female athletes across 26 sports, between 1886 and 2012. Comparisons were made between pre-1932 records (when steroids became available) and post, and it was found that the times, distances and other results did not improve as expected in the doping era.
    Well what the ****!? Especially when you consider this.

    A team of researchers has examined the impact of anabolic steroid use on power lifters years after the athletes had ceased to take the drugs. The researchers found that while physical traces of the drug no longer remained, changes in the shoulder and quadriceps still gave lifters an advantage years later.
    So is science just crazy or are these just allowing those of us that are not genetically gifted to reach the same levels as those that are gifted?

    The second story was regarding power lifting, which it described as a static strength based sport. The latest study was regarding dynamic and/or endurance based sports, where they admit there might be some gain in some specific aspect of performance but that this is either cancelled out or outdone by negative impacts on other aspects of performance for that sport.

    "PEDs" covers an enormous range of substances, they're not created equal by any means.
    Many have suspect gains, hell, cyclists used to smoke tobacco to increase lung capacity and took strychnine for dog knows what reason.
    Those bizarre trends continue today.
    That said PEDs applied "correctly" certainly can provide objective gains though caveats apply.
