68% More Gen X'ers Risking Erectile & Libido Dysfunction

Forgive me for hammering on the many problems of cholesterol lowering drugs of late. But the news keeps piling up on them. The news is really serious in its implications for both our nation and to the young men and women who could be seriously harmed by these problematic drugs.

Recent news reports indicate more men and women between the age of 20 and 44 could be losing their sex drives, if other medical reports are to be believed. The news is that sales of these drugs has increased by 68% to that age group.

In previous articles, I've noted how the popular cholesterol drugs can hurt patients in different ways:
  • Memory loss, and amnesia
  • Heart atttacks
  • Erectile and libido dysfunction
Can the US afford to have a bunch of Gen X'ers & Gen Y'ers suffering from memory loss and reduced testosterone levels? Are we femininizing our society, turning men into wishy washy wimps?

With Alzheimer's Disease already a grave worry, what happens if we add to that a large number of Cholesterol-impaired brain-addled young adults?

Men need testosterone to maintain their masculinity. Women need a tiny bit to maintain their natural sex drive. All of us need fully functioning brains for as long as possible.

I fear for our future. There are so few voices crying out to stop this madness, with millions of prescriptions being written each year, destroying brains and vitality.

This is no joke. Physicians are becoming more aggressive in prescribing 'Limpitor' and the other statins. Meanwhile, medical bodies keep reducing the mythical number as to what is a safe level of cholesterol.

If you're concerned about your cholesterol, a much safer and effective solution would be fish oil and arginine. Neither will mess with your testosterone or your brain except to help them.
