There's a line to cross for both testers and athletes before the latter can be labeled cheaters. These agencies seem to be moving that line, without the consensus of those who have to abide by their rules, in order to get convictions to stick.

What Does Critical Thinking Mean in Education ?

What Does Critical Thinking Mean in Education ? | PED | Scoop.it

Critical thinking is an important skill in the  21st century learning. Education's overall goal is to produce students that will be able to think critically and not just take in things like a parrot. Of course there is a bunch of other important skills out there but this particular one stands out from the crowd. The thing about ttis skill is that while almost all  teachers agree upon its priority in education only few really know what it really means

A pill that promises the benefits of a workout, minus the effort

A pill that promises the benefits of a workout, minus the effort | PED | Scoop.it

"I know there are probably plenty of people who would prefer" to pop a pill rather than jog a few kilometres, Professor Burris said.


But, he adds, the fundamental aim of his and similar research is to aid those who can't exercise, not those who decline to, and even the beneficiaries inevitably will be shortchanged.


"Exercise has so many health benefits" and "no drug can" recreate all of them, he concludes.


Meaning that a good stroll or swim will probably never be fully reducible to tablet form.

Steroid use can be categorized under both professional and personal ethics as far as personal use and abiding to rules and regulations prohibiting it's use.

Jamison Fausett's curator insight, February 8, 2014 11:52 AM

While I strongly disagree with the use anabolic steroids, I think the way we look at steroids as a society could be adjusted. From my own research there is many positive benefits that could come from the use of Human Growth hormone.

You think the doping issues in modern sport are new? A bit of history will tell you otherwise - In the 70's West Germany (as they were then) demonstrated the lengths a country was willing to go to for 'international' success.

This Is Why The Steroid Era Isn't Over In Sports

This Is Why The Steroid Era Isn't Over In Sports | PED | Scoop.it

“Drug testing is still impotent, has been impotent since it started," said Charles Yesalis, a professor of health policy administration, exercise and sports science at Pennsylvania State University. "Frankly, many of these drugs work way too well and there's way too much money involved to ever see a light at the end of the tunnel.”


While pleased with the progress of its mission to stamp out performance-enhancing drugs in sport, even the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency agreed that testing doesn't always work

 

But he noted that it was a "one-time deal" because someone -- former Biogenesis employee Porter Fischer -- "ratted out" Biogenesis, leading to the MLB doping revelations. Similarly, the BALCO scandal in 2003 started when Trevor Graham, who coached track and field athletes for the Olympics, anonymously turned in a dirty syringe to the USADA, revealing that athletes were getting a then-unknown drug from the Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative.

 

“It's still going on," Yesalis said. "The only way baseball or any other sports federation will be able to get power is to do almost police sting operations because drug testing has been a flop.”

 

“Unfortunately, we always tend to be behind people who are creating these things and using them," said Dr. Alex Diamond, a sports medicine doctor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn. "There's so much money involved in it, they're always able to get a step ahead and we're always trying to play catch up”

Alex Martin's curator insight, January 9, 2014 10:28 AM

This is a good article because ABC news shows that more and more pro athletes are comming forward with their use of steroids. With the Number of athletes each year getting caught, it makes you wonder, "How many athletes are doping and getting away with it?" With the number rising, More and more ways to get by the test clean, there deffiently needs to be more protocols.
