The US Anti Doping Agency (USADA) is chartered to:
To be the guardian of the values and life lessons learned through true sport. We hold the public trust to:
Preserve the Integrity of Competition — We preserve the value and integrity of athletic competition through just initiatives that prevent, deter and detect violations of true sport.
Inspire True Sport — We inspire present and future generations of U.S. athletes through initiatives that impart the core principles of true sport — fair play, respect for one’s competitor and respect for the fundamental fairness of competition.
Protect the Rights of U.S. Athletes — We protect the right of U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes to compete healthy and clean — to achieve their own personal victories as a result of unwavering commitment and hard work — to be celebrated as true heroes.

After the federal government closed the case against Lance Armstrong, the USADA has decided to open it again.
Mr Armstrong states this on his website:
"I have never doped, and, unlike many of my accusers, I have competed as an endurance athlete for 25 years with no spike in performance, passed more than 500 drug tests and never failed one. That USADA ignores this fundamental distinction and charges me instead of the admitted dopers says far more about USADA, its lack of fairness and this vendetta than it does about my guilt or innocence." And we... his fellow athletes support him.
The truth about cancer:
11 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in 2008. Chances are you could be one of them
The National Institutes of Health estimates overall costs of cancer in 2007 at $219.2 billion.
All cancers caused by cigarette smoking and heavy use of alcohol could be prevented completely.
Cancers that can be prevented or detected earlier by screening account for at least half of all new cancer cases.
Federal funding for prevention and research continues to decline.
