Personal Enhancement Drugs

A Little Bit of History...

The ancient Olympic champions were professionals who competed for huge cash prizes as well as olive wreaths. Most forms of what we would call cheating were perfectly acceptable to them. There is evidence that they gorged themselves on meat (not a normal dietary staple of the Greeks) and experimented with herbal medications in an effort to enhance their performances. The ancient Greek athletes also drank wine potions, used hallucinogens and ate animal hearts or testicles to try to be better athletes.
