Xenon, which is used by athletes to boost red blood cells, and in turn, to boost their stamina, performance and results – has recently been made illegal by the World Anti Doping Agency.
When consumed with oxygen, xenon stimulates the production of EPO which makes a better performance on the track. However, this is now classified as doping and is illegal.
