But the research team is hoping to reduce these numbers. They saw in their trial that the mice were helped by a reduction of polyps — the abnormal clumping of cells that build on the inside lining of the intestines and have a tendency to become tumors. A daily low-dose of Viagra halved these formations in the critters.

Cool, a two-fer, as “scientists found that men who ejaculated 21 or more times a month enjoyed a 33% lower risk of prostate cancer compared with men who reported four to seven ejaculations a month throughout their lifetimes.”

The concept for viagara came from observing victims of the bite of a large South American spider. Unfortunately for the victims, the dose of venom delivered by the spider was many times that needed to kill and even much more than needed to give the victim the viagara effect.
What were they thinking?

Since it’s a half dose, do you call a doctor if it lasts more than TWO hours?

Tried once to swallow a Viagra without washing it down with water. It got lodged in my throat, and I had a stiff neck all day...
