It's a huge health risk as well because of the strikes to the head and the loss of water in the brain's protective membrane. I think this is just as big of problem as PEDs.
I disagree witht he walk around weight part. If you are over weight, you shouldn't have to stay at that weight. I think that they should be ceritfied at whatever weight they would be at 7 percent body fat.
