We’re asked to make a lot of decisions about our health these days.
Like should you have spinal fusion surgery for a painful back? (No.) Is there an erectile dysfunction drug that’s less likely than others to cause unfortunate side effects? (Yes.) Should you take a “joint support supplement” for achy arthritic hands? (No.)
But how can you be confident that you’re making the right decisions? Who can you trust? Which advice or product hurts more than helps? Will it do anything at all?
Thousands of men turn to this positive, practical newsletter every month because they know that it will help them make the most informed, intelligent, and beneficial decisions for the large and small health decisions they face.
Our approach is simple. We give you the straight-up facts you need to confidently make your way through misleading advertisements...conflicting advice...and even incorrect advice, no matter how well-intentioned it may be. That’s because every word in our newsletter is supported by the latest and best research and backed by the unparalleled expertise at Harvard Medical School. So no matter what type of decision you have before you...no matter what question you may have about your health (even ticklish ones that you may be embarrassed to ask your doctor about) — our health experts are here for you.
“My blood pressure is 150/90 mm. Do I need to go on medication?” It depends on your age. “While 140/90 may still be more beneficial, it must be balanced against the potential side effects of medication, especially with the elderly,” says a Harvard physician.
“Can vitamin E therapy help slow Alzheimer’s decline?” Maybe. Among men with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease, high-dose vitamin E slowed their decline more than the Alzheimer’s drug memantine. According to the researchers, it could “noticeably prolong” a person’s ability to do simple tasks.
“What’s the best drug for erectile dysfunction?” Viagra has been on the market the longest, but the latest entry in the field may have fewer side effects than the other drugs.
“What’s the best treatment for narrowed neck arteries (carotid stenosis)?”According to a study of 1,700 men and women, surgery to remove artery-clogging plaque and angioplasty with placement of a stent prevented disabling strokes equally well.
“Is it safe to sit in a hot tub if I have a heart condition?” Despite warning signs to the contrary, there is no convincing evidence that soaking in hot water harms men with heart disease.
“There are two drugs to treat age-related macular degeneration. Which drug is best?” Recent evidence shows that the cheaper treatment (Avastin) is just as safe and effective as a more expensive option (Lucentis) for this common form of age-related vision loss.
Unlike many other health publications, we’ll NEVER water down our health news.
