The economics of breeding and raising Belgian Blue cattle are inconclusive because of complications experienced during parturition and metabolic demand for increased concentrated feeds. The breed's increased need to have Caesarean sections when calving means increased cost and added work, and can become a welfare issue. [ citation needed ] However, the carcass value of double-muscled animals may be enhanced due to increased dressing yield, lean carcass content, and upgrading of some cuts leading to a higher proportion of higher valued cuts.  The slower rate of fat deposition causes slaughtering to be delayed in most cases, which means an increase in maintenance costs in those animals. Belgian Blue cattle require more skilled management and do not thrive in harsh environments.  For these reasons and others, the breed's overall production efficiency in an economic sense is still unclear.
Not shortly after Roger Maris record was broken, another baseball player, Jason Giambi and various other athletes were either suspected of, or proven to have, taken anabolic steroids. Again, Congress convened a hearing, and just as they did the first time in 1990, they did not determine that steroids were a danger, but rather that the danger was more in protecting professional sports organizations. The updated statute has been updated to proscribe pro-hormones also The definition of an anabolic steroid as defined currently in the United States under (41)(A) is that "anabolic steroid" means any drug or hormonal substance, chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone (other than estrogens , progestins, corticosteroids, and dehydroepiandrosterone (7).
A distinction should be made between electromagnetic sensitivity, and symptoms an individual labels as such. Researchers have failed in proving that those claiming sensitivity to electromagnetism can accurately determine the presence of a strong electromagnetic field. Nevertheless, the perceived symptoms are real for the patient, and should be honored as such, or until it can be demonstrated that they are psychosomatic or have some other physical source. Many people who meditate, for example, perceive energy movements in their body and learn to work with these. But a second distinction must be made between those who successfully work with unusual psychological states and these who find them debilitating. For the later, either drugs or meditative practice may or may not be helpful. Overcoming, defusing, or sublimating debilitating mental states is never easy.
