    The Doping Dilemma

    Has anybody else read the latest Scientific American? Great article by Michael Shermer about doping in sports, how teams got around the 50% hemocrit etc. If anybody believes that doping [I]wasn't[I] rampant and used by everybody in the 1990's needs to see the chart on page 87. 1991 - 2007 will go down with baseball as the pharmaceutical era.

    Hmmm... $5, no thanks.
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

    I'd like to see that.

    I know that they look at Testosterone ratios and if Bioidentical Hormones are used in the correct ratios, how could they ever detect that? if they tag all production maybe.

    At some point, especially if one is replacing a natural hormone (think insulin, for example) to some "normal" (varies widely, in men) range.....I don't understand how they can ever control this.

    I realize this is a different form of doping. Personally, I think high crits are dangerous.
