  Ban on Kolo Toure highlights confusing drug punishment procedures

Ban on Kolo Toure highlights confusing drug punishment proceduresThe Manchester City doctor, Jamie Butler, alleged to have authorized Kolo Toure taking diet pills, has been cleared of all blame related to the failed drugs test of the Ivory Coast defender last March.

Toure originally claimed that that doctor sanctioned the supplements he borrowed from his wife in an attempt to lose weight.

From Footballfancast.com:

Unfortunately, the former captain at Eastlands was absent for the team’s first cup triumph in 35 years when his brother, Yaya, converted the only goal in City’s 1-0 win against Stoke in last month’s FA Cup Final. “Before I signed for City I told Kolo I wanted to come to England to play with him and win something together,” said Yaya before the Wembley showpiece. “That won’t happen on Saturday, and that means it will be a hard moment for him, and for me as well.”

The public response to Toure’s misdemeanor was initially empathetic, but a deeper inspection of the player’s intent suggests that he was looking to gain an advantage over his Premiership compatriots by attempting to lose weight in a purportedly unnatural fashion. The extent of his punishment is arguably proportionate to the committed crime, but taking a glance at recent cases of substance abuse in football illustrates a confusing and unpredictable process for punishing those guilty of failing drugs tests.

Toure will have to wait until September 2nd until he can feature again for City having been banned for a total of six months by the Football Association.

Steroid use among girls not merely restricted to athleticsFemale teens make use of steroids for many purposes other than athletics, according to a team of researchers from the Division of Health Promotion & Sports Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University.

Steroid use among female teens is for many unhealthy choices such as diet pills and smoking, as per a study published in Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, a JAMA/Archives journal.

Future studies are required to formulate effective interventions for high-risk young women who have received less attention than young men in the past, according to Diane Elliot, M.D., professor of medicine (health promotion and sports medicine), OHSU School of Medicine.

More oversight of dietary products recommended by studyEven though half of all American adults make use of dietary supplements such as diet pills, vitamin pills, energy drinks, and herbs, the FDA doesn’t have enough authority for ensuring that the products are safe. A recently released government audit has suggested that the FDA should seek more oversight power.

Though the FDA has taken some steps for supervising the supplement industry more closely, those steps have not gone far enough as per a new report from the Federal Government Accountability Office.

It is worthwhile to note here that the market for dietary supplements is growing in the United States, which is evident from the fact that Americans spent an estimated $25 billion on such products in 2008 as compared to $23.7 billion in 2007 according to Nutrition Business Journal, which covers the industry.

More oversight of dietary products urged by studyAccording to a government audit, more than half of all adults in the United States, or at least 14 million people, make use of dietary supplements like herbs, diet pills, vitamin pills, and energy drinks.

But the FDA doesn’t have enough control to ensure that these products are safe and more oversight power is required to put things in the right place.

The new report from the Federal Government Accountability Office acknowledged that the FDA had indeed taken some steps in the past few years for supervising the supplement industry more closely, but those steps didn’t go far enough.

Novel findings on childhood obesity and early PCOSNovel findings on treatments for childhood obesity and early polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in young girls were presented via five studies presented in press conference on kid’s health in New Orleans during ENDO 2004, the 86th Annual Meeting of The Endocrine Society.

The research also evaluated how much anabolic steroids and body-shaping drugs are used by the teenage community. It was revealed that non-athlete teens and boys are more likely to make use of anabolic steroids while high school girls use more of body-shaping and athletic-enhancing drugs (BSD).

Dr. Linn Goldberg and researchers at Oregon Health and Sciences University analyzed the results from 2,036 females, while in another study they looked at results from 4,100 students.

Body-shaping drug use in female high school athletesAs per an article in issue of The Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, a peer-led and sport team-centered program helps in minimizing eating disordered behavior and drug use for body-shaping in female high school athletes.

It was revealed in the article that about half of high school students (male and female) participate in school sports and the pressure to excel in these events influence young women to come closer to disordered eating behaviors, drug use (tobacco, diet pills, diuretics, laxatives, amphetamines, and anabolic steroids).

The topics in the ATHENA program were gender specific and included information on effective exercise training, drug use, depression prevention, media images of women, and healthy sport nutrition.
