Get Your Lost Erection Back with Sildenafil Citrate 100mg

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a sick and naughty male sexual dysfunction to have.  Because of this condition, it inhibits you from having successful intercourse with your female partner.  This is because without an erection, vaginal penetration is not possible.  Fortunately, although only temporary, you can get your erection back using sildenafil citrate 100mg.  Sildenafil citrate 100mg is very effective in providing you the erection you lost due to erectile dysfunction as it is the generic alternative of Viagra, the most popular and highly sought after ED treatment drug.

Sildenafil citrate 100mg is classified as a PDE5 inhibitor drug because it follows the same mechanism of action of drugs belonging to that class.  What PDE5 inhibitor drugs do is that it selectively focuses on the smooth muscles lining the penis.  This smooth muscle relaxes when you are sexually stimulated to allow blood to enter the cavities within the penis so an erection can be achieved.  Once you are no longer sexually aroused, the smooth muscles then contracts back to squeeze the blood out of the penis so the penis becomes limp again.  This is actually what is great about PDE5 inhibitor drugs like sildenafil citrate 100mg because they provide you with a normal-like erection function.

Isotope crisis sets off political meltdown

The Halifax Chronicle Herald yesterday reported it had come into possession of a misplaced audio recording made in January of Natural Resources Minister Lisa Raitt (below) -- the minister responsible for the nation's nuclear facilities and radioisotope supply -- calling the then-impending radioisotope shortage a "sexy" political issue and eagerly anticipating the political benefits of solving the crisis by throwing money at it.

Unsurprisingly, if not entirely deservedly, her use of the word "sexy" to describe an issue that pertains to thousands of cancer patients' and other patients' health has been met with pleas for sympathy from weepy patients on the evening news and harsh recriminations by members of the opposition in Ottawa. Never mind that the word "sexy" is used by almost every politician across Canada and in most newsrooms as well, as an indignant Christie Blatchford (is that redundant?) makes clear in The Globe and Mail.

Opposition members predictably stood up in the House of Commons to demand Ms Raitt resign from cabinet, which she in fact offered to do. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, however, refused to accept her resignation.

And while all this blustering and bickering takes up the attention of the government and the national news media, the radioisotope shortage only continues to get worse as supplies dwindle. Patients' tests have already been delayed because of the lack of isotopes, and the Toronto Star reported that this week the government's isotope plan is beginning to fail -- in part because foreign production cannot seem to fill our demand -- and hospitals will soon have no isotopes left to use in diagnostic imaging exams. [Toronto Star]

When our elected representatives are done sniping at one another as the parties position themselves for a potential federal election this year, will they finally figure out how we are going to get ourselves out of this mess? Our guess: probably not anytime soon. The major barrier is that solving the problem would require some acknowledgment of mistakes that have been made over the past decade or two. But as should have been made clear by now, that kind of intellectual honesty is simply radioactive.

    Are you implying that Christie is not sexy?

    Are you implying that what Christie says is redundant?

    Is this a sexist remark or a "reporting?

    Let's not get me in trouble with Ms Blatchford here.

    I only meant that indignation is her natural state of being. Nothing more, nothing less. I may be able to write a bit about health policy but I hardly feel qualified to judge my fellow journalists on their sexiness or lack thereof.
