Title: Drugs In Sports
Authors: Sharma, Vivek
Issue Date: Oct-2010
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: Not all athletes play by the rulebook. Many resort to drugs to enhance their performances. Apart from ethical implications of these substances there are serious potential negative health effects too. Taking drugs to enhance performances has always been considered a short cut to sporting glory. This is the reason these drugs are also called Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs). The "win at all costs" mentality fuels athletes to seek performance-enhancing drugs to gain an advantage over their opponents.
