    Local NBC station just reported research: Beer and exercise prevent prostate cancer. :D :P

    I had seen this finding somewhere else before. While it is true that normal or elevated testosterone levels seem to support the development of prostate cancer, hence the use of testosterone blocking drugs as a treatment for patients with confirmed prostate cancer, the use of these drugs also usually kills the libido as testosterone levels drop.

    Additionally, heavy beer drinkers along with alcoholics have higher incidences of impotence and erectile dysfunction than the general male population.

    Before we all go out and start guzzling beer for its prostate cancer inhibiting properties we had better also consider that our sex lives may be similarly inhibited. I have to admit however, an ice cold beer after working in the hot sun on a summer day can be mighty fine. :lol:
