Re the Aug. 8 letter Steroids or vitamins: If there is no difference between steroids and vitamins, then why would someone choose to inject themselves with an illegal substance if they can go to any store and buy vitamins and supplements? Athletes use performance enhancing drugs to achieve better results in weeks rather than months, and months rather than years. This puts legitimate athletes at a huge disadvantage. Aside from the serious health risks associated with steroids, which is the reason for being banned in the first place, this is cheating in every sense of the word.
