Xenon and Argon has been made illegal to use by sports athletes. Why is this? Read below to find out.

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.

It turns out that these two noble gases no longer result in noble results on the track.
