Say Goodbye to Erectile Dysfunction with Tadalafil

Erectile dysfunction, abbreviated ED, and otherwise known as impotence in men, is the failure of a man to obtain and maintain an erection which is direly needed for engaging in sexual intercourse.

Erectile dysfunction is a condition that is very common in much older men.  It has been estimated that about half of all men who are within the bracket age of 40 to 70 may have ED at a certain degree.  Depending on the circumstances and on the individual himself, erectile dysfunction can also affect those who are younger, even if they are just around the age of 25 or more.

Why does ED Occur in some Men?  Erectile dysfunction causes actually vary, and they can be physically related or psychologically related.  Physical causes of ED may include hormonal issues, surgery or injury, tightening of the blood vessels that lead towards the penis which is usually linked to high cholesterol, hypertension, or diabetes.  Psychological (mental) causes of ED may include depression, anxiety or problems with relationships.

MD claims Alzheimer's reversal "in minutes"
LOS ANGELES -- Sensational footage from a video released in early April has drawn suspicion to American MD Edward Tobinick. In the film he injects a dementia patient with an anti-arthritic, etanercept, and minutes later the man seemingly recognizes his wife who he hasn't identified in years. However, miracle cures tend to follow Dr Tobinick around. Last year he was reprimanded for calling the same drug a "breakthrough" for neck and back pain. "There is not a single study that shows my treatment methods do not work," he argues. (In the video below, the patient's family describes the man's recovery.)

"Nanoworms" target tumours
SAN DIEGO -- They travel through patient's veins, stealthily avoid the body's immune system, and may soon seek out and destroy tumours; , microscopic slivers of magnetic iron oxide coated with polymer -- created by researchers from UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara and MIT -- bond to and reveal developing tumours that are too small to detect otherwise. The worms show up well on MRIs because of their superparamagnetic properties and in the future could carry targeted drug payloads directly to cancerous cells.

The treatment, which emerged amongst the Inca around 1000 A.D., was used mostly to treat warriors with head injuries. Often they were anesthetized with maize beer.
