The deadliest way to 'treat' your prostate
If the drug industry's marketing geniuses couldn't use fear to sell meds, they wouldn't have any sales pitch left at all -- and nowhere is that more true than in prostate meds.
Men don't take these drugs because they work -- they take these drugs because they hear the words "enlarged prostate" and panic into one of the worst decisions they'll ever make.
That's because the drugs your doctor will give you -- the very meds he claims will help your prostate -- could actually increase your risk of getting the DEADLIEST and MOST AGGRESSIVE form of prostate cancer!
Prostate drugs: All risk, no benefit
I blew the lid off this scandal last year, when researchers outrageously tried to claim that the higher cancer risk was really a lower one (nice try).
Believe it or not, the FDA actually took my side on this and eventually issued a cancer warning for the entire class of meds -- not that they'll ever give me any credit for it.
Now, everyone else is playing catch-up: Public Citizen just updated its "Worst Pills" list to include Avodart, Proscar and the rest of the 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors regularly prescribed for enlarged prostate.
The group says the cancer risk alone is reason enough to never, ever take these meds... but that's far from the only reason.
In fact, cancer is just the beginning -- because even if you avoid the disease, you could lose everything that makes you a man: erections, libido and more. Then, adding insult to emasculation, these drugs can even leave you with a floppy pair of "man boobs."
And get this: Those sexual side effects can last... even if you stop taking the meds!
By the way, prostate meds also double as baldness drugs -- so either learn to love your shiny dome, or find another solution to hair loss.
What good's a sexy mane if you've got breasts and a limp penis anyway?
You might think that leaves you up a creek with an enlarged prostate instead of a paddle, but nothing could be further from the truth. There are natural choices out there that can tame your prostate without putting your life -- your "real" life or your sex life -- on the line.
Do your homework, and you'll find one that works for you.
