Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
"[T]here seems to be little doubt that chronic administration of hGH... could result in supranormal growth. I call this condition 'selective gigantism,' and there is some evidence that it exists among a few abnormally tall athletes in the Eastern Bloc... Although I have yet to see evidence of 'selective gigantism' in the United States, adult American athletes are using hGH obtained on the black market in increasing numbers... Apart from the possible long-term health hazards, this kind of abuse also gives some athletes an unfair advantage in competition. For both reasons, it should be curtailed."
