A recent study conducted by Science Magazine revealed that 1 in 5 scientists use performance enhancing brain drugs in order to stay ahead of the curve. Does this mean that the Scientist equivalent of Bud Selig is going to try and lock these performance enhancing doping scientist out of the running for the Nobel Prize. Do rogue neurologists and fission physicists get 50 lab hour suspensions for violations?
Seriously, if we call athletes who use performance enhancing drugs "cheaters," then what do we call scientists who enhance their performance in the workplace? Similarly, what do we call actors and actresses who shoot botox in their lips and live on HGH diets in order to stay in the public eye? We live in the era of doping, and it's not just on the playing field. In fact, the playing fields are taking the brunt of the criticism when in fact it may be time to acknowledge the world has changed and doping is now the norm and not the exception.
