Sign me up- Gene Therapy
Most of you have probably heard about this already, but I wonder how long till the recreational user is dabbling with gene therapy
SEATTLE, Feb 17, 2004 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- U.S. scientists predict the discovery of gene therapy that increases strength by 30 percent will be the next scourge of professional sports.
The "gene-doping" technique is being developed to treat patients with muscular dystrophy and other wasting diseases, The Times of London reported.
Experiments at the University of Pennsylvania have shown that when mice are injected with a modified virus that adds a vital growth gene to their cells, they develop into heavily muscled, super-strong animals that the scientists have nicknamed "mighty mice." The effects are nearly doubled when the gene therapy is coupled with "weight training."
Such enhancements could produce significant improvements in speed, power and strength if given to an athlete, said Dr. Lee Sweeney, who led the Pennsylvania research.
Sweeney told the American Association for the Advancement of Science conference in Seattle although the technology was designed for bona fide medical purposes, it was inevitable it would be abused in sports.
He said he has already been approached by coaches and athletes seeking to try gene therapy, even though the technique is barely ready for patient trials.

patient trials. that's me.................. or some nut on here will get some.........The answer to your every question
A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted
to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially
one exhibiting intolerance, and animosity toward those of differing beliefs.

It was really only a matter of time. With the genome mapping with super computers of late, it will become a matter of information and a "need to know basis" of application.
I smell the next black market for "roid heads".
