A Recent Study Concludes: Testosterone DOES NOT Cause Prostate Cancer

lead testosterone researcher 300x200For decades the medical community accepted the fact that testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) should never be prescribed for aging men due to the increased risk of prostate cancer. This was especially true for men that were diagnosed with the dreaded disease. It was considered by many urologists that treating men suffering from prostate cancer with testosterone would be “like throwing gasoline on a raging bonfire.” However, this long-held view has been challenged. Ever hear of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP)? This is when doctors use a robot to perform surgery on the prostate, with more precision, control, and better visuals. A recent study has shown that...

The many benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

testosterone hormones 300x200The many benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) It’s a fact. Men’s testosterone levels are plummeting. Countless studies have found that men’s testosterone levels have been declining for decades. A 2007 study that appeared in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism concluded that there has been a “substantial drop” in men’s testosterone levels since the 1980s with the average levels diminishing by about 1% annually.

Testosterone FAQ’s

testosterone explained 300x215The Facts You Need to Know About Testosterone Q: What is Testosterone? A: Testosterone is a hormone, a chemical messenger – it is the sex hormone that is responsible for making males male, although women also have the hormone in small amounts.
