Director of the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics at Arizona State University
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
"It might be argued that using performance-enhancing drugs exposes one to serious health risks and that those who feel compelled to use them to remain competitive are being forced to run risks that they would otherwise not run. But again, there are health risks involved in weight training and other forms of physical training intended to improve one's competitiveness."
Experts Individuals with MDs, JDs, PhDs, or other relevant advanced degrees, heads of professional sports leagues, and US Congress members with significant involvement in, or related to, performance enhancing drugs and sports. [Note: Experts definition varies by site.]
