Comment He didn't use a drug. (Score 2) 482

You need to be clear on what he was charged with. The agency is saying he got transfusions of oxygen-doped blood before races. Since oxygen is not a "drug" there isn't a specific test that can say whether it's present in abnormally high levels. The ADA will tell you this frankly. But if that's what Armstrong did, it was real genius. Oxygen-enriched blood will supercharge any athlete. And oxygen is not a foreign substance.
