Marie-Laurence Boutin's curator insight, August 22, 2014 10:13 AM

Bode Miller is know to think outside the box. He wants to legalize the use of performance-enhancing drugs. His argument is :  ''because in our sport, it would be pretty minimal health risks, and it would actually make it safer for the athletes, because you’d have less chance of making a mistake at the bottom and killing yourself.'' Even though his argument is true he might not be considering all of the repercussions that legalizing performance enhancing drugs would have.

Introducing the third culprit of PEDs... the fans and sponsors who pay for everything. This Dr. explains how it can happen and a third perspective that maybe cheating is universal and to win fairly an athlete would have to be a saint.

Hematocrit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The hematocrit (Ht or HCT, British spelling haematocrit), also known as packed cell volume (PCV) or erythrocyte volume fraction (EVF), is the volume percentage (%) of red blood cells in blood. It is normally about 45% for men and 40% for women.[1] It is considered an integral part of a person's complete blood count results, along with hemoglobin concentration, white blood cell count, and platelet count.

In mammals, hematocrit is independent of body size.

The term hematocrit (Greek αιματοκριτης) comes from the Greek words hema (Greek αιμα, meaning "blood") and criterion (Greek κριτηριον)[clarification needed]. It was coined by Magnus Blix at Uppsala in 1891 as haematokrit.[2][3] The word haematokrit was modeled after lactokrit which was used in dairy farming. (See also: Scudder & Self in NEJM Oct 30, 1941 225:18 p. 679 "Controlled Administration of Fluid in Surgery").
