Anti-doping testers fear reality of genetically modified Olympians

Anti-doping testers fear reality of genetically modified Olympians | Ethics in Athletic Training | Scoop.it

There have been "marathon mice", "Schwarzenegger mice" and dogs whose wasted muscles were repaired with injected substances that switch off key genes. It may not be long before we get the first genetically modified athlete. 

 

Some fear the use of gene therapy to improve athleticism is already a reality. But since sports authorities' drug testing methods still lack the sophistication needed to pick up gene doping, its status remains unclear. What is certain, from scientific studies and from surveys of elite sports people, is that it is technically feasible to use genetic modification to improve sporting performance, and that some athletes are prepared to risk their lives if they could be guaranteed to win gold medals. Officially, UK Anti-Doping, the body which oversees the control of performance enhancing drugs in Britain, says genetic manipulation as a form of performance enhancement "is currently a theoretical rather than a proven issue".

 

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) says it is ploughing "significant" money and resources into research into finding ways to detect genetic enhancement of athletes. 

Gene doping - in which DNA is introduced into the body using an inactivated virus or by other means - could alter a person's genetic make-up and improve athletic performance by increasing muscle growth, blood production, endurance, oxygen dispersal or pain perception. Since it cannot be detected, no one really knows whether athletes are using it or not.

On October 22, 2012, the International Cycling Union announced that it was stripping Lance Armstrong of all of his 7 Tour de France titles endorsing the findings of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) that there was evidence that “shows beyond any doubt that the U.S. Postal Service Pro Cycling Team (Lance’s team) ran the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sports has ever seen.” Last week, Mr. Armstrong decided to resign his position as Chairman of Livestrong, the cancer-fighting foundation he had created in 1997. He said he was stepping down: “to spare the foundation any negative effects as a result of controversy surrounding my cycling career

This article comes at a price of health vs the things the doctor tells you. I know that we should always listen to what the doctor says but sometimes the doctor is wrong.
