A seemingly performance-enhancing steroid notoriously used by a cyclist named lance Armstrong before he was deprived of his 7 Tour de France titles, according to a new scientific study, it does not actually work. Even though it is the most choice of drugs for most of the athletes prepared to risk blood clots and cheat. Strokes and other promising fatal health issues, a small examining have been performed to support the allegation made about it. The new study wanted to do just that with the steroid used by Lance Armstrong and with two groups of casual participant’s cyclists.
Awareness of the drug is a must so tricks can be avoided
As given the hormone or a fake drug over an 8 week period and then assigned to cycle 110 km before the racing up to the towering Mount Ventoux, it is the regular features in the tour and one of the toughest challenges in the sport. The examiners found a hormone included in the construction of the red blood cells, which has no difference to the cyclist’s performance in the competition. Even though it did have an effect in the laboratory fitness tests to the speck of consumption. Most of them did not seem to observe any increasing factor to their training. It is 9 out of 23 in the group were expecting that they had been given the drug, compared to 6 of the 24 of the group that was given the fake drug. The researchers said that they showed any possibilities to test a promising doping element in well-controlled clinical tests. And that the results are much less distinct than alleged in some famous accounts and literature, according to The Lancet, writing the journal.
Making his name dropped down because of the drug he used
The general results of their study showed the treatment improved their performance in well-trained and attentive cyclists in a laboratory-based best exercise test leading to consumption. But it did not enhance maximum training road race performance or test. To enhance their performance during the road races and not in maximum training test is the goal of using the professional sports by the EPO. Not until 2011, US Anti-doping Agency investigation, he missed all of them and in 2012 found he had used banned drugs during his cycling career. His surprising success on the road joined two things with his recovery from his testicular cancer in his mid-20s.
Ruined your career by ineffective drug is totally a mess
It had made him one of the highest profiles on the planet and a popular sports people in the world. It has about 80 million of his yellow ‘Livestrong’ wristbands grown by Nike and were sold to raise money to be given to some of the charities. Nevertheless, Lance Armstrong finally admitted himself that he had been taking drugs during his interview on 2013 with Oprah Winfrey’s show. “It is just a catastrophic to lose your career for something that doesn’t work, to be deprived the 7 yellow jersey just for a drug that has no effect”, according to Jules Heuberger of the Netherlands, the Center for Human Drug Research, as he spoke to the Daily Telegraph.
