P.E.D’s (performance Enhancing Drugs) will always linger sports, aslong as the players receive big paychecks and popularity from their greatachievements.
Most players think it would be a great idea and that there are noside effect at the time, but the fans hate it and it destroys all theachievements you’ve completed because they think you’re a cheater Pro sports mosttimes have a terrible effect on the body as they are pushing themselves mostparts of the day everyday and have high chances of running into problems andinjuries during the high intensity seasons. When the pros run into injuries, itcan have detrimental effects on their career, which also has a big impact onthe team’s performance. As a player continues to use steroids for a prolongedtime, their body begins to have negative side effects from to the unnaturalchange. Scientists report that the use of P.E.D’s raises the risk of sufferingfrom muscle, joint and tissue injuries later on in their career. What oftenhappens is that trainer will give steroids to the player and influence them totake the drugs.
They say there are little negative effects and it will speed upthe recovery process, to return to playing.

Also, the new players joining the sport join in and use steroids tolengthen their future careers and continue to play the sport that they makemoney from and love, as well as to take their skill to the next level. In MLBlots of superstars like Manny Ramirez and Alex Rodriguez used steroids in thelate stages in their career so they could keep with the young stars, and be ontop of the stats chart. In the NFL the football players take steroids to keepup with the other teams.
This affects the older players on the teams becausethey are at a disadvantage because there bodies have experienced more wear. Usage of anabolicsteroids is forbidden across all sporting competitions and committees includingthe Olympics. More and more athletes are using steroids and are getting bannedevery year partly because they are very easy to obtain, in some countries youcan obtain them over the counter. With all these risks why would an athletechoose steroids? It mostly is because the regulations aren’t enforced well andmany places bend the rules of steroid use in professional sport.
A sports eventis supposed to show natural skill not synthetic skill obtained by doping. In conclusionsports will always have players who decide to take P.E.
D’s. there are manydifferent reasons to take the drugs but its breaking the rules regardless.Sadly it always will give them a bad reputation and are seen as outcasts andcheaters. In my opinion steroids should taken serious and I think they should abolishthe making of steroids for usage in sports and if someone is caught they shouldhave serious consequences going their way. Its too bad that the abuse ofsteroids still happens in sports seeing the history of the player that gotcaught is never good, and all these athletes are seen as role models and kidsto strive to one day be as good as them.
