Doping & the Child
In April this year, I published a brief commentary about the American Academy of Pediatrics statement on performance-enhancing drugs in sport. This commentary was extended and published in the Sept 10 issue of The Lancet. Full reference as follows:
Miah, A. (2005, Sept 10). "Doping and the child: an ethical policy for the vulnerable."The Lancet 366: 874-876.
"Genetically Modified Athletes [by Andy Miah] provides a comprehensive analysis of how genetic technology will be used to enhance sports performance, and how our existing framework for dealing with the problem of sports doping is inadequate on both practical and ethical grounds."
