Bell, Jack A.; Doege, Theodore C.
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v15 n3 p99-102,104-06,108 Mar 1987
Literature on drug misuse by athletes is reviewed, and information from 16 sports and medical organizations is presented. The review discloses little evidence that drugs can improve an athlete's performance without also posing the threat of serious harm. How physicians can discourage drug use by athletes is discussed.
