Everyone knows Viagra can give you a little pick me up and sometimes it lasts more than four hours. However, Viagra is being tested to fight cancer and researchers have found it can sometimes delay or stop the growth of tumors in mice. The mice had other growth but it wasn't a tumor and they found it did the same in some human patients. If you think about it this is great news because Viagra is a cheap drug now and if you're down and out with cancer it can get you back up and on your feet again in some cases. Who says old drugs can't learn new tricks. Read the study here.

Drugs containing PDE5 were originally meant to help fight angina, a condition in which poor circulation can cause severe chest pain. It wasn’t until researchers actually ran clinical trials that they learned that their new drug helped pump blood to other places, too. So, naturally, patients started seeking out the drug for more recreational purposes.

I dont really trust an article that cant distinguish PDE5 from a PDE5 inhibitor, Viagra is the latter.

Mr. Happy putting up a tent at the mall would be distracting. "It's just a tumor."
