Blood Medicine

Price: $4.49

?Blood Feud rivals A Civil Action for best non-fiction book of the past twenty years. John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of Damage Procrit seemed like a biotech miracle, promising a golden age in medical care. Developed in the 1980s by Amgen and licensed to the pharmaceutical giant, Johnson & Johnson, the drug (AKA Epogen and Aranesp) soon generated billions in annual revenue?and still does. In 2012, world famous cyclist, Olympian, and Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong was banned from professional cycling on doping charges for using EPO (the blanket name for the drugs Procrit and Epogen), resulting in a global controversy about abuse, big pharmaceutical companies, and the lies and inaccuracies concerning performance-enhancing drugs. Mark Duxbury was a J & J salesman who once believed in the blood-booster, setting record sales and winning company awards. Then Duxbury started to learn unsavory truths about Procrit and J & J?s business practices. He was fired and filed a whistleblower suit to warn the public. When Jan Schlichtman (A Civil Action) learned of Duxbury?s crusade, he signed on. Now, he?s fighting on behalf of cancer patients and for every American who trusts Big Pharma with his life.

Cycling back in the States: My experience at Richmond's cycling world championship - SportingNews.com

When he's not covering the NHL and Washington Capitals for his blog, Puck Buddys, he's writing professional cycling for Sporting news. When I last left our heroes, and by heroes I mean the world’s greatest professional cyclists, they had just finished 10 laps around the Champs-Élysées, the final kilometers of the three-week 2015 Tour de France this past July. I was traveling in the company of NBC Sports as a volunteer/intern and, while I made nothing close to the demanding sacrifice the riders did, I was emotionally and physically exhausted, a fitting end to my first bike race. During my vetting process with the NBC brass this spring, I didn’t get around to telling them I’d never seen a bike race in person before. Last weekend, I saw my second bike race, the UCI Road Race World Championships. MORE: Chasing the 2015 TDF | Life on the road during the Tour de France. I didn’t have to travel halfway around the globe for it. a thousand of the most talented cyclists in the world were practically in my backyard: Richmond, Va. This series of races was a big deal, a very big deal. Worlds is arguably the biggest event on the cycling calendar after le Tour, and this is only the second time since 1922 it’s been held in the States. Winners, crowned world champions, will sport the coveted rainbow striped jersey for the duration of the season and into the next. Unlike the Tour, which I traveled in the comfy warmth and security of the NBC bubble, I was on my own for Worlds. And since I was only there for two of the nine days of events, it was a pretty easy logistical lift on my part. The trip from DC to Richmond was similar to a typical stage day on the Tour. Naturally, I over-packed, loaded up the car with my bike, snacks and water bottles, then drove two hours. Three hundred thousand cycling enthusiasts were expected in Richmond for the week and, like an idiot, I waited until the very last minute to book my accommodations. However, located in Richmond’s warehouse district, it did put me just three miles from the media filing center and start/finish line, so I was a short bike ride to just about everything. After I checked in, I loaded up my backpack, including my rain gear. precipitation was all but guaranteed by the forecasters, and I biked 20 minutes to Richmond’s convention center to pick up my press tags. Although credentialed for the races, I wanted to experience it like a civilian this time. Rather than cross the barriers at the start/finish line on Broad Street to hobnob with the media, I meandered up and down the sidewalk trying to size up the spectator crowd. The Elite Women’s road race had started an hour earlier and, while there was a concentrated crowd by the convention center and the fan zone site, it thinned noticeably only a few hundred meters up the route. This was the second biggest event on the week’s calendar: eight laps around a 16-mile course that traversed the city. The relative lack of enthusiasm and bodies lining the route led me to wonder if Richmond was a cycling town. From Broad Street I jumped on my bike and huffed and puffed up wayyy too many hills to Libby Hill Park, the spot on the route that was expected to draw sizable crowds due to its winding cobblestone surface. It was a party scene, jammed with spectators, and mostly the younger set: hipsters on their fixies and spandex-clad amateur cyclists. The women riders climbing Libby Hill park. There were beer trucks, VIP tents (so VIP that I was bounced out by a security goon when I flashed my media pass trying to enter), sponsor setups and Jumbotrons. The park was rung with turn-of-the-century homes and the porches were filled with revelers. Everyone had cowbells and were rattling them constantly, more so as the riders came up the route to pass through the park. It was a great vibe up there, and the crowd got more boisterous with each successive lap. I began to think that, perhaps, Richmond was indeed a cycling town. Back downtown, far from the madding crowd, British cycling star Lizzie Armistead won the race, and the Libby Hill Park crowd started to disperse. The rain we were all promised was starting to come down more heavily and I found my way through Richmond's neighborhoods towards downtown. On le Tour, I ate nothing but French food (thanks, NBC caterers. ) but that cuisine didn’t seem appropriate for Richmond. Decades of French colonialism had a big impact on Vietnamese cooking and I grabbed a steaming bowl of pho at some joint near the VCU campus. Sunday was the big day and the forecasters again.
