Performance enhancing drugs in sport should not be tolerated and should be illegal.
The taking of these performance enhancing drugs isn't fair, we’re encouraging youth to take these drugs and it can have dramatic health risks weather it is short term or long term.
Performance enhancing drugs in sport such as the commonly known steroids give the consumer an unfair advantage on rival competitors. Is it really fair if one athlete who has the financial means to buy these products has an advantage due to that and not his natural raw talent? If drugs in sport are aloud then wont it really be a competition on who can create and afford the best drugs and not the untampered skill that these athletes who train for thousands of hours genuinely possess.
If we allow drugs in sport what is it teaching the youth of society? Is it telling them that you don't have to work hard to become and athlete and that you can take shortcuts to get what you want. Is this the child you want to raise? A slacker who finds the easy way out. This isn't the message that should be sent out to the youth of our country. We should be teaching the developing nation that if they want something bad enough they will have to put in the hard work and pain in order to reach there goals and not that everything in life will come easy to them.
Many drugs have harmful effects on the human body. These may not be visible until many years into the future but when discovered can lesson the quality of life in later years and can even send you to a premature example of this is a body builder who went by the name of Zyzz who was idolized by many is a known fact that he took performance enhancing drugs in which put much stress on his body contributing to his death at only 22 years of age.
To conclude performance enhancing drugs give an unfair advantage, are harmful to athletes and give a bad message to the upcoming generation. If we allow performance enhancing drugs in sport then we have lost the real meaning of competition. It is designed to show off how hard someone has worked and we admire that. With the introduction of these drugs we should really be giving praise to the scientists not the athletes.
