Not sure what to think about
the sketchy study.
1. Men don't generally know or care about
prostate cancer until they are in their mid to late 50's. The study said it was found to prevent cancer in men 55 and above. When would men begin taking the drug?
2. How many of us would take a drug that would reduce our already waning sex drive when we are perfectly healthy at age 55 for a 25 % chance of not getting prostate cancer which we already only have a 17 % chance of getting ?
3. Oh, and by the way, if we do get cancer after taking the drug, we have a slighlty higher chance of getting more aggressive tumors.
4. It may be a better shot to just have a DaVinci when we are done having children. That would give a 100 % chance of not getting PC. Wouldn't that be a better statistical deal ?
Sometimes these PC things don't make all the sense they seem to think they do.
