I am fully with everyone who is appalled by the he treated others who accused him. I just think we have to be aware that sport is always going to take advantage of any edge they can find. We should be monitoring them and making sure that they do it safely. EPO can safely be used to raise the hematocrit up to a certain point, beyond that point you raise the risk of stroke and heart issues. We should check for unsafe levels not for the drug itself. That increase in HCT level can also be gained through altitude training or the use of an atmosphere chamber, both of which are totally legal.
