Steroid use among horses under the scannerThe New Jersey Racing Commission has proposed a testing program and formulation of new penalties for curbing the use of androgenic-anabolic steroids in thoroughbred race horses.

The rules would be in line with what has already been in practice in more than twenty states in the recent past.

It is expected that these strict penalties would be enforceable by the proposed rule and would be helping anti-doping officials to curb steroid use besides adding fairness to horse racing. This rule is also expected to add a new dimension to the game that has been under dark clouds amidst recent steroid use accusation.

New Jersey Racing Commission to limit steroid use in horsesAccording to officials, the New Jersey Racing Commission has proposed a rule for the establishment of a testing program and strict penalties to inhibit the usage of androgenic-anabolic steroids in thoroughbred race horses. The rule would be very much in line with what is already been in practice in more than 20 states in the last few years.

It is believed that the strict penalties, which will be enforceable by the proposed rule, would go to a great extent for inhibiting the usage of anabolic steroids and adding fairness to horse racing. It is considered that this proposed rule would be providing a new and fair dimension to the game of horse racing, which has been in dark clouds after recent reports of steroid usage in the game.

  Celebrity-driven image culture behind growing demand for steroids

Celebrity-driven image culture behind growing demand for steroidsDoping officials and members of the general public are raising their deep concerns over the growing demand and popularity of steroids despite the fact that the government has already claimed that it has already enforced tight control on the manufacture and distribution of steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. But, truth cannot be hidden for long and the underlying truth is that steroid usage is growing at an all-time high.

The biggest reason: celebrity driven image culture.

With news about sportsmen and other celebrities taking up anabolic steroids to stay ahead of the competition and maintain the “invincibility” factor, more and more “followers” have already started using steroids without understanding possible side effects. With big names such as Sylvester Stallone saying that he is an old man jumping around trying to look young and being busted at the Sydney Airport with 48 vials of human growth hormone Jintropin, things cannot be expected to settle down. The only thing that can happen from here on is popularity of steroids.

As per members of the general public and doping officials, things cannot be corrected unless highly stringent measures are implemented. Till this happens, illegal importation, unauthorized steroid usage, and distribution of anabolic steroids will continue despite all odds.
