EXCITING MEDICAL NEWS

Taking Viagra cuts the risk of Alzheimer’s by up to 69% and it could be prescribed to beat dementia, study suggests

(Thanks to Barry Nester, Roberto, The Perts, Asher Scheiner and Le Petomane, who says "This study will be hard to disprove.")

If you remember who you are, you may have had an erection lasting over 4 hours.

It helps with things that are hard to remember.

That percentage seems a little suspicious.

And now you will remember what to do with it?

Well now, don't that beat all!

A friend advises, "If you feel like a genius longer than 4 hours, go to the nearest ER."

Make sure you swallow it all the way. I heard about an old guy who got the pill stuck in his throat. He had a stiff neck for 3 days.

Guys - Just don't let it go to your head

A plus for men taking Viagra is they don't have to worry about rolling out of bed at night.

And if women take it...will they feel like a man?

So, walk softly, beat dementia by carrying a big stick, and give Alzheimer's the shaft?

𝅘𝅥𝅮 Walk like a man, talk like a man
Walk like a man, my son 𝅘𝅥𝅮
No woman's worth crawlin' on the earth 𝅘𝅥𝅮
𝅘𝅥𝅮 So walk like a man, my son

Your risk of Alzheimer’s after age 65 is only 2% per year to start with, so a decrease of "up to" 69% isn't as big as it may sound. After age 85, however, the risk reaches nearly one-third, but you have to live that long to begin with. And your risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, etc. also increases greatly, which is why few people live to 100.

But enjoy the Viagra anyway.

Ralph,
If you compress the graph you get better looking results.

One a day seems about right, don't you think?

^5 @Rod Nunley - Tastefully understated!

As if boner pills weren't expensive enough already.

Big Pharma is laughing.

“sildenafil could boost brain power by improving blood flow.” So women are on to something with all those jokes about which part of the anatomy men use for thinking?

Couldn't wait to show this to my wife.
Her response...."You know, if you think about it, Alzheimers isn't all that bad."
