Regular physical activity helps reduce the chances of Type 2 diabetes by regulating the blood sugar levels in the body, and it helps reduce heart disease by lowering blood pressure and increasing your HDL cholesterol. (Bassuk) Reducing the risks of these diseases also reduces the need for medications to control high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. Adding weight training and balancing routines to a workout schedule will also increase muscle and bone strength, which will increase stability and reduce the risk of falls and fractures. Likewise, as little as 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, which increases lung capacity, a week can lower the risk of heart related diseases and can curtail excess weight. (Physical Activity: Physical Activity for Everyone) Physically active people are also at a lower risk of developing diseases like colon and breast cancer.
The original aim of Prohibition was to “reduce crime and corruption.1” The idea behind this was that by decreasing alcohol consumption, the amount of drunken crimes would go down, and decrease the crime rate. This is true to an extent as petty crimes such as vagrancy, swearing and mischief did decrease due to Prohibition2. However this is overshadowed by the fact that Prohibition created the problem of bootlegging. As liquor was no longer legally available, the public was practically forced by the government to turn to gangsters for supplies. As this industry was so vastly popular in demand, it became vastly profitable for gangsters, and as Thornton says, “criminal groups organise around a steady source of income provided by victimless crimes such as consuming alcohol.”3 This is a very useful source as Thornton is one of America’s experts on the economics of illegal drugs4, so he can inform about the way the criminal gangs avoided Prohibition, and sold alcohol illegally.

Less restrictive drug laws will greatly increase this dangerous drug use. Only ¼ to ½ of people can easily get illegal drugs (other than marijuana).

Unfortunately, Lance Armstrong was found guilty of blood doping. Dictionary.com defines blood doping as “a procedure in which an athlete is injected with erythropoietin, his or her own blood, or the blood of a family member prior to competition, purportedly increasing the blood's oxygen-carrying capacity as a result of the addition of red blood cells.” This gave him an unfair advantage over his opponent which allowed him to successfully win the Tour De France 7 times. I believe that he will be remembered for the disappointing moments in his life because he has not been able to restore his reputation. Another reason for this is because most people remember the most recent incidents and fallen moments in a role model or celebrity’s life. People expected more of Lance due to his remarkable reputation before his
They recently passed a law that makes it illegal to possess anabolic steroids. This piece of legislation is aimed at gyms, where the rampant use of PED’s has led to many deaths (“Drugs in Sports” 18). While this legislation maybe somewhat limited in its scope, it is a step in the right direction. Parliament in Britain has been paying close attention to this issue and may be close to passing similar legislation. As in most things, this sort of following the leader is probably what is going to open the floodgates on regulating steroid and doping use.
