Everyone keeps sending around this article about the sketchy doctor who is diagnosing a shockingly high number of elite runners with hypothyroidism, which may be helping them to win lots of medals.

  1. Right!? I’ve been on thyroid meds for ~12 years now. I’m gonna call it justified… Given that my thyroid was radiated when I went through radiation therapy for Hodgkins Disease in 1999 and it no longer works at all. I swear to God I don’t consider this cheating. At all.
