Mark Jenkins, MD Biography

Executive Director of the Hall Health Center at the University of Washington
Con to the question "Should Performance-Enhancing Drugs Be Accepted in Sports?"

“Pharmacological cheating in sports is not a new phenomenon. Unfortunately, the modern era has witnessed explosive growth in new and different ways to achieve false victory. Advances in biochemistry, medicine, and other fields have benefited humanity in countless ways. Sadly, however, some have abused these advances for, ‘pursuit of victory at all cost’.”
