Since 2011 Arne Ljungqvist Anti-Doping Foundation runs a number of information initiatives to raise the general knowledge about doping within society at large. With purpose of drawing attention to both the usage and the risks that comes with it.
– We are very proud of the support we are getting from Skandias foundation Idéer För Livet and we see them as an important partner in being able to reach large groups of youths with our message. The use of doping is increasing at an alarming rate amongst both youths and regular gymgoers. It is easily accessible online and there is also the chance that it might be found in inadequately controlled supplements. We are therefore focusing on the spread of positive information in order to raise awareness so that everyone can make smarter decisions about what we put into our bodies, says Arne Ljungqvist, Professor and Founder of Arne Ljungqvist Anti-Doping Foundation.
