What's Cheating--Steroids or Burgers?

As I watched yesterdays' Congressional hearing on steroids in football, I was appalled by the ignorance displayed by our elected officials. If they know this little about a subject that's had this much scrutiny, how much worse are they when dealing with other issues? William Saletan of Slate had the same reaction and he asks the incredibly obvious but also unasked question, "If you limit your steroid dosage to stay below that threshold, how exactly is that harmful? And if it isn't harmful, how exactly is it cheating?"
