I know what you're hinting at here.....most PEDs are absolutely effective, and absolutely give an athlete an edge. That is undeniable, and is beyond proven through science; but because of individuality in the athletes, differing natural talent levels and differing abilities to continue developing physically beyond a certain point, it is difficult to quantify the exact measure of advantage gained from individual to individual. They are absolutely effective, but individual base talent and physical ability is the x factor, not the drugs.
