We have all heard of sportsmen who were disqualified from their sport for doping. Certain Olympic sports such as track and floating around, baseball, football, body building, strength training and cycling contests have all seen their share of doping scandals. Merely what is doping?

In simple terms, doping is the utilization of drugs or other substances to improve an athlete's performance, making them faster, more powerful or have more stamina than they normally would. Anabolic steroid drugs are most likely the most well-known of the drugs, adopted by HGH (human progress hormone). Other drugs and substances have also recently been used, such as androgenic hormone or testosterone, Dianabol, Furabol, cocaine, digitalis, amphetamines, ephedrine and even strychnine.

Since the early on 1990s, blood doping has also been done using various substances and ways to raise the red blood vessels cell count. Two of the substances used are Erthropoietin and Hypoxia Inducible Factor Stabilizer. The first is normally used in medicine for cancer patients undergoing chemo remedy or radiation. It also stimulates faster healing of wounds. The second is employed in the treatment of persistent kidney disease. Blood transfusions and blood substitutes (engineered O2 carriers) are two of the strategy used to boost the red cell count number. Increasing the number of red blood cells allows more oxygen to be carried through the body.

Many of the drugs and methods used for doping have beneficial medical uses when used appropriately and low doses. In sports, they are being used in high doses and more often within medicinal use for the sake of last longer in bed, being faster and better to have an edge in competition.

When these substances and methods are being used for the sake of boosting an athlete's performance, they not only can but do become dangerous. The hazards athletes take in doping include stroke, heart failure, hypertension, liver, kidney and thyroid damage, cardiovascular disease, aggressive behavior, severe feeling swings, suicidal thoughts and adrenal burnout.

The hazards an athlete takes in doping don't just destruction the person's health, they could be deadly. Other risks may well not be as dangerous but actually will still affect the sportsman for the rest of their life. For example, adrenal fatigue will leave the athlete fragile, damage to the reproductive system can bring about sterility and impotence, issues with balance and coordination, and an enlarged heart.

Before an athlete even considers doping to win in competition, they better considercarefully what it will do to their health and how it will affect their personal life. Is being stronger, faster and having greater stamina worth risking your daily life? Usually are you ready to pass away for your sport?
