Prescription Test Lawsuit

Last night I was in bed watching some show and one of those Lawyer Class-action Law Suits commercials came on. You know the ones,“If you or a love one has suffered from…or taken…FILL IN THE BLANK” Well much to my surprise the “Blank” was filled in with “PRESCRIPTION TESTOSTERONE”. I was shocked and knew I was going to be having a discussion with my wife on this topic sooner or later.

Has anyone see this before or have any knowledge on the subject?

“Men with signs of heart problems were 30 percent more likely to suffer a stroke, heart attack or die compared to healthy men who didnâ??t take testosterone supplements, according to the study, which followed 8,700 men taking testosterone for three years”

That was time and money well-spent.

Wait, so men with signs of heart problems are more likely to suffer a stroke/heart attack/die of CVD than healthy men?

Gee, I would never have guessed.

Don’t forget the part where the subjects with heart problems are given testosterone but the healthy participants don’t receive any.

It’s such a flawed and stupid “study.”
