During the past two decades major American sports leagues have implemented tough anti-drug policies, and yet a recent poll by Marist University in New York indicates that more than half of Americans believe baseball players are better home run hitters now because they take performance-enhancing drugs. Through objective discussion, numerous direct quotes, and full-color illustrations this title examines What Is the Origin of the Drug Use Controversy in Sports? How Do Performance-Enhancing Drugs Affect Athletes? Are Drug Users Cheaters? Does Drug Testing Work? Are Dietary Supplements an Alternative to Performance-Enhancing Drugs?
