The blue pills of Mount Everest

Blue powersupplyI blog on Practical Ethics: Keeping Viagra in the bedchamber and out of the arena? about the recent investigations of whether sidenafil could work as doping. My conclusion is that it may actually be a way of increasing fairness in sports.

Outside of sports, if the results hold up, this might actually be practical for mountaineers or people going to high altitude environments. But the (ehum) side-effects might of course complicate a climb.
