I see where your coming from but most other fighters were cheaters too so it was nearly a level playing field. Jon is a very well rounded fighter, but i wanted to see him against heavyweights with a reach similar to his to see how he went against them. Gus gave him massive problems with a similar reach and a lot of jons strikes are based on using his reach which is smart but doesn’t necessarily mean he is the best “skilled” fighter because of his natural physique. I personally beleive jones has been cheating for years and would question if he would have won the gus fight and the first DC fight as he came strong late in the fight which im sure his juicing would have aided.
It’s therefore natural to think of antibiotic therapy as the natural opposite of steroids, and this has some truth to it. In the case of infection — which, remember, is not the only cause of inflammation — steroids do inhibit the immune response. But bear in mind that antibiotics do not, as a general rule, actually support or promote the body’s inflammatory response; rather, they work independently by attacking the infection directly along their own pathways. The result is that some pathologies (such as the contentious cases of sepsis and epiglottitis) may respond both to steroids — to manage the excessive inflammatory response — and antibiotics — to help eliminate the source infection.
I do not condone steroid use by teenagers. At the same time, I think it has been wildly exaggerated as to how many high-school students are into steroids. I have seen statistics as low as 3% and as high as 20%. That’s a pretty big range, which makes it tough to believe we even have anything like an accurate idea of what the percentage really is. But that’s not really important. If I was a parent, and I do happen to have a son and a daughter myself, I would be far more concerned with Junior drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana, taking Ecstasy, or snorting cocaine. I watch the news and read the papers, and I never seem to read about fatal car accidents or drug overdoses involving teenagers and steroids. Nobody is slipping a couple tablets of Winstrol into a 16-year-old girl’s drink and committing a date rape. Teens have no business using steroids, but as far as being a threat, there are about a hundred other drugs far worse to worry about. Any time you hear differently you can be sure it’s a slow news day down at Channel Five.
