Performance enhancing drugs are a controversial issue in the sports world today. While some people believe these drugs can increase athletic performance, it is obvious that these drugs are detrimental to human health. These drugs cause athletes to have unfair benefits over others as well.
Firstly, supplements to increase athletic performance should not be allowed because they can cause significant harm to the human body. For example, athletes who take these supplements may overwork their bodies and end up tearing tendons in the process. While professional athletes take these supplements because of financial incentives in order to perform better, they are not energy efficient to the body. Most athletes end up crashing after taking these drugs. Therefore, these performance drugs should be banned from all markets.
Secondly, supplements should be banned because they provide an unfair advantage. In the world of competitive sports, an unfair advantage can result in money loss and defamation for the losing athlete. These drugs help athletes create specialized bodies for the sport in question. Athletes on drugs have ultra-endurance capabilities unlike the athlete with the drug-free and average body. This causes the competition to lose its value and the real athletic talent to be lost. These drugs get rid of the real meaning of sports.
In conclusion, performance enhancing drugs and supplements should not be allowed in competitive sports due to unfair advantages, and they should not be allowed in any marketplace, because they are unhealthy.
