Following on from the previous post, I have just had a look at the Duke pages and they have a debate on the ethics of gene doping. On their poll, it is interesting to see a reasonably even split between the pro- and the anti- doping views. It's also good to see David Resnik (renowned bioethicist, someone I have referenced a lot and would like to meet) voicing his view: "I am inclined to say make it legal for some sporting activities and not for others. The bottom line here is fairness. If there is a sport that does not allow gene doping, and some people dope, they will have an unfair advantage. If a sport allows doping, then doping will not be an unfair advantage. Sports will have to decide whether to allow doping. David Resnik, NIEHS/NIH"
