Epo; you actually used my main argument. My opinion is that if you have low blood-values you should Epo up, just like the asthmatics do with their quick-fix.

"Exercise-induced asthma". Yeah, I also breathe like a madman after a few minutes on the treadmill. Give me drugs.
Some people have testosterone levels of 300 ng/dL while others are at 900 ng/dL. How is that fair? If we follow the asthma TUE logic then the ones who were screwed by God/nature should be granted testosterone replacement therapy to make it equal for everyone.
And how is it fair that people with a natural hematocrit level of 50 % compete against those with 40 %? It's not, nature is cruel and unfair. To make it fair for everyone, EPO therapeutic use exemptions should be granted for those with "too low" hematocrit levels. Except we don't, we only do that for asthma medication...

Froome had bilharzia, Froome has asthma, Froome tested positive "due to had kidney problems" and won the Vuelta-Tour double. It's strange how the best athletes also have the most health problems... Could it perhaps be because a TUE gives you carte blanche to dope more than you normally could have??

Asthmatic Medicine, what do we think about the use of it in the sport? Kristian, once again, spent severe time arguing with me the other day about it being no biggy and totally ok. He played the cure sickness card over and over again. I tried to say that it shouldn't be a folk right to be World Champion, or Olympic Champion and that if you needed medicine to be able to start the competition; then maybe you shouldn't be there in the first place. Noway Jose that I buy an argument what so ever about it being ok knowing that the Norwegian cross-country athlete's have been popping it like crazy, since they started dominating in the earlie 90ies, combined with the whole Team SKY Froomie & Wiggins scandale and it's all a total joke in my eyes. Thoughts?
