HGH and a Sporting Question

Sally Jenkins offers an interesting take on the HGH controversy and our own moral dilemma:

When we crack down on "performance-enhancers," are we trying to preserve the integrity of the competition or the health of the athlete? Is it safer and ethically more acceptable to use HGH to heal from an injury than to use it as a muscle-builder? If so, why isn't the difference reflected in doping regulations? Rather than work all of this out, we've allowed the anti-doping authorities to lump all substances and all athletes who sample them, regardless of their motives, into one equally guilty party. That way we don't have to do any hard thinking.

Worth the read.

Measure, blend and freeze. It's so convenient to pull a few cubes out and defrost them the next night for dinner.
