THE WAR ON MEN
MORE THAN 30 MILLION MEN SUFFER FROM THE EFFECTS OF LOW TESTOSTERONE, BUT ONLY 5% RECEIVE TREATMENT.
You Should Ditch TRT Gels and Injections. Shigekazu Nagata PhD (長田 重)
To Put It Mildly,
It has been said that testosterone therapy (TRT) is a scam for Pharma to sell steroids. It is.
You have to be a sucker to think that a gel of any type is going to return your manhood to you, like a lost puppy.
Manliness doesn’t just get “lost.” It happens due to hormonal imbalances that wreak havoc on your body overtime...
The food you eat and the type of exercise you do play a huge role in this. If you think you can cure a lifetime of bad habits with a damn cream or gel, you’re kidding yourself.
Testosterone Gels DOUBLE The Risk of Cardiovascular Disease and TRIPLE the Risk of Heart Attacks in Men!
Slathering a testosterone gel on your skin is hazardous to your health!
Here are the latest warnings direct from leading researchers and even the FDA:
“Testosterone [gel] doubled the risk of cardiovascular disease in more than 7,000 men who were 65 years old or older, essentially confirming findings in previous studies. The other part found that testosterone almost tripled the risk of heart attacks in a group of more than 48,000 middle-age men with previous histories of heart disease. The harm in both cases occurred within 90 days of receiving the prescription.” – The New York Times
“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating the risk of stroke, heart attack, and death in men taking FDA-approved testosterone products. We have been monitoring this risk and decided to reassess this safety issue based on the recent publication of two separate studies that each suggested an increased risk of cardiovascular events among groups of men prescribed testosterone therapy.” – FDA
“None of the FDA-approved testosterone products are approved for use in men with low testosterone.” – FDA
Nonetheless, testosterone products rake in billions of dollar’s worth of profits for the companies that make and sell them. Yet there have been thousands of lawsuits filed due to T products harming their users. Welcome to America. A January 2016 article from LawyersAndSettlements.com stated:
“The number of testosterone lawsuits consolidated for pretrial proceedings continues to grow, with almost 3,500 claims now included in the multidistrict litigation. Lawsuits allege men who were given testosterone therapy suffered serious cardiac side effects…The lawsuits allege men were not adequately warned about the risk of serious testosterone side effects, including cardiac issues.”
SHOULD WOMEN WORRY ABOUT THEIR TESTOSTERONE LEVELS?
Yes, women should take notice, but many don’t since testosterone is generally considered a male hormone. Did you know that it’s also a fundamental hormone for women? The small amounts of testosterone women produce is enough to keep mood swings at bay and their sex drive going strong.
By the time a woman hits 40-years-old, her testosterone levels are roughly half of what they used to be when she was 20-years-old. Some researchers believe that this deficiency in women can cause unwelcome symptoms that include an inability to lose weight, tiredness, anxiety, depression, decrease in strength, lack of motivation, and a loss of muscle mass. However, these symptoms are usually ignored or attributed to a part of ageing.
WHAT ABOUT ENDURANCE ATHLETES?
You won’t see high testosterone levels in athletes doing endurance sports. Endurance athletes aren’t spared from the merciless “T” killer’s tentacles. Long-distance running, endurance cycling, and triathlon are the most affected by reason of elevated cortisol – a major stress hormone. The excessive amount of cortisol floating around in your body then leads to adrenal gland enlargement – all thanks to those strenuous, exercise blowout sessions. We all need some cortisol to survive, but too much brings a weakened stress response that is always connected with low testosterone in male endurance athletes.
LONG DISTANCE RUNNING
Experts at the University of British Columbia uncovered that those who ran 40 plus miles (64.4 kilometres) per week suffered lower “T” levels than those who ran shorter distances.
Brazil’s Universidad Federal de São Paulo conducted an examination on 20 men by measuring their baseline testosterone levels. They then made the men undergo a 26.2 mile (42 kilometre) run and tested their serum levels the following day. The men ended up with 50% lower “T” levels!
The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research presented their research surrounding testosterone levels in male mountain bikers. They grabbed 22 professional mountain bikers and 30 healthy non-cyclists. The researchers measured their levels of testosterone and found a considerably lower testosterone concentration in the male mountain bikers when compared to the non-cyclists.
One famous cyclist knows all too well about the dangers of low testosterone. Chris Boardman, who was diagnosed with “T” deficiency in 1997, had suffered since the beginning of his career from a low level of the male hormone. “I had less testosterone in my body than my eight-year-old son,” he said.
Boardman, a former Olympic gold medalist who also wore the coveted yellow jersey three times, knew something was wrong after he started racing in the Tour de France.
“I had a problem that was affecting my performance, and I needed to find out what it was. Anyone with low levels of the hormone will struggle to keep up their stamina. I would always start races well, but after a few days, my energy would be totally spent. Doctors told me my cycling did me no favours because excessive exercise can further drain testosterone levels. I faced a choice – I was told the longer I continued cycling, the worse I would get – so I quit cycling.”
Swimming the backstroke won’t slash “T” levels, but swimming in a chlorinated pool can. This calamity doesn’t just affect swimmers or triathletes, but it’s a problem for anyone who bathes or drinks tap water, too.
A study in the International Journal of Andrology reveals that boys with a long history of indoor swimming were almost three times more likely to suffer from testosterone deficiency.
Alfred Bernard, a professor of toxicology at Belgium’s the Université Catholique de Louvain (Catholic University of Louvain) and his colleague Mark Nickmilder, took 199 teenage boys (aged 14-18) who swam religiously in both indoor and outdoor chlorinated pools.
They then took 162 teenage boys (aged 14-18) who swam regularly in outdoor and indoor pools, but both pools were disinfected with copper-silver ionization.
The researchers discovered that the boys who swam “religiously” in the chlorinated pools for more than 250 hours before the age of 10, and for more than 125 hours before the age of seven, had extremely low testosterone levels when compared to the group of boys who never set foot in a chlorinated swimming pool. The greatest hormonal changes were found in the teens who swum in an indoor chlorinated pool before the age of seven.
WHAT ABOUT ADULT SWIMMERS?
Your body absorbs more chlorine, and more importantly disinfection byproducts (DBPs), by swimming in a chlorinated pool than you would by drinking tap water for one week. – Dr Mercola
As you can tell by Dr Mercola’s quote, chlorine definitely impacts adult swimmers since it easily enters the body – especially if you’re swimming in an indoor chlorinated pool. Toxic gases, such as nitrogen trichloride are readily inhaled – causing serious damage to the lungs, reproductive system, and it has even been linked to cancer.
Shower before and immediately after swimming with a non-chemical soap. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients, toss it in the bin. I like Dr Bronner’s Magic Soaps, but you can use any natural soap. Why shower beforehand? Because lethal pool disinfectants called chloramines are released when combined with sweat, urine, or nitrogen-rich elements commonly found in toxic beauty products.
I know this isn’t always possible, especially if you’re a triathlete, but aim to swim in an outdoor chlorinated pool since the majority of the noxious vapours are eliminated in the air. It’s best to swim in the sea or a lake, but not all of us have that luxury.
This major antioxidant neutralises chlorine. It’s best to attack chlorine’s negative effects on the body by strengthening the immune system. It’s best to ingest a high-quality vitamin C supplement because our food isn’t the way it used to be – thanks to soil depletion and the abundance of toxins everywhere. Crops grown decades ago were much richer in nutrients than today.
Swimmers should take a minimum of 4,000mg daily with meals since vitamin C doesn’t stay in the body all day. For example, you can take 2,000mg with breakfast and then 2,000mg with dinner.
ALPHA LIPOIC ACID
ALA is an antioxidant that protects the liver and aids in detoxification. This powerful antioxidant attracts metal toxins like chlorine and flushes it out of the body. It also restores vitamin C and vitamin E levels – both of which are attacked when exposed to chlorine.
Chlorine destroys vitamin E, so if you’re an avid swimmer, you better buy an extremely good quality vitamin E supplement to protect your cells from toxicity damage.
