I understand why EPO is wrong and sports and why the drug has such a negative vibe in American society. Athletes need to be athletes and not lab generated super humans. However, me and my buddy were watching a baseball game last night and having a few drinks and we began discussing drugs in sports in the United States, basically how much more exciting MLB baseball was during the steroid era. The question came up about EPO, which was does the drug have the ability to do serious damage to your body? Neither of us really had any idea because it is something that you hear about but do not really know what it does to a body. I remember seeing a doctor on 60 Minutes talking about how beneficial human growth hormone can be to the human body when administered correctly. I did a quick internet search this morning and could not really find out any major negative side effects if EPO is administered correctly. I was wondering if you guys could point me in the right direction of the negative effects that this drug (and also human growth hormone if you guys want to go there) can have on the health of a human being?
