I read a lot of that.  Depressing really.  Just how many are there?

"As difficult as finding steroids can be, they're a snap compared with the class of drugs based on natural human proteins. The most famous of these is EPO. Because EPO stimulates the body to make more red blood cells, which carry oxygen, athletes who use it get an endurance boost. This makes it especially popular in cycling, cross-country skiing, and distance running."

I agree though Rich, he appears to have signed up to one of the most passionate anti drugs Doctor there is.
