The role of erectile dysfunction drugs like Cialis and Levitra in the promotion and progression of prostate cancer and melanoma. Subscribe to Dr. Greger’s free nutrition newsletter at http://www.nutritionfacts.org/subscribe and get a free excerpt from his latest NYT Bestseller HOW NOT TO DIE. (All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from his books, DVDs, and speaking directly support NutritionFacts.org). Sometimes it can take years for serious side-effects to be recognized, so rather than just covering up symptoms with drugs, we should treat the underlying cause with lifestyle changes whenever possible.

Keep jerking off and you'll lessen your chance of prostate cancer. The same was said about having kids and lactating for the babies. Use it or lose it, it seems.

Does it include Cialis

I once had a viagra tablet get stuck in my throat, I had a stiff neck for hours.

In case you missed it... In the study showing immune effects of Viagra, the protocol was for pregnant women to take it intravaginally, four times a day. Can you imagine!? Having to insert tablets four times a day!
Miranda Burke (25 days ago)
Does this mean vegans can't swallow meat eaters sperm😮😮 maybe my bf will now turn vegan
Mark max (26 days ago)
Just posting this comment to get more knowledge on the subject. Wouldn't Vegans have a much lower risk of getting prostate cancer or skin cancer due to our plant base lifestlye if we hypothetically took any ED drugs? This is not click bait. Ratinonal infomative replies only please.

Dear NutritionFacts team... My family is Croatian and can't understand your videos. Would it be possible to add subtitles in Croatian or Serbian? (I think the new videos already have Serbian) Or could you allow other YouTube users like me to add subtitles through YouTube? Thanks!

What about green tea, I heard it was highly preventive of melanoma and prostate cancer. Green tea or the extract of green tea, either one is supposed to be highly effective.
mjs1231 (27 days ago)
Prostate problems have been cured. large amounts of testosterone have been shown to reverse and remove late stage prostate issues. This vid is outdated.
Some Guy (25 days ago)
mjs1231 I just did a Google search. I saw some headlines on both sides of this issue. Women tend to live longer than men. Is it the testosterone? Do you have a link for your original post?
mjs1231 (25 days ago)
Some Guy i dont think thats from test. Thats diet and lifestyle.

Phillip J Fry, RWS and Noodle Doodle are just troll accounts that are most probably managed by a single person (likely milkjar). I wouldn't bother to answer this tryhard.

I would like to thank all the fake vegan's here for your entertaining paranoia and complete lack of self respect. May your genetic weakness continue to make us all laugh at your fake diet, your blind faith diet religion and total ignorance regarding your own mental and physical health. It's suckers like you that cry troll because, well... it's all you got.

One of the poorer videos. Hard to draw any reasonable conclusion from the data other than observe a few swipes at people who eat fish or use Viagra. Unfortunately, this video provides no support for whether vegans need to use Viagra more or less than the average meat eater. Or anything other than a weak observed relationship between one kind of cancer and erectile dysfunction drugs. My inspiration for pursuing a vegan lifestyle was physically fit with no blockage (he donated his body to a medical school which is how I know this) yet couldn't get it up when he was the same age as other meat eaters who were having sex. We may like to assume vegans are supermen sexually but where is the evidence? Looking down on meat eaters because we "know" they are not healthy is not science. My vegan friend also developed type 2 diabetes in his 60s even though he was not overweight. I much prefer the more evidence based videos.

White Kita (27 days ago)
well, that's just another reason for men to go vegan... vegan men don't need toxic pills to keep it up....because unless they do mind altering drugs, drink alcohol or watch porn they are the best in bed!
Doodle Master (27 days ago)
White Kita how do you know that? Do you give them a questionnaire about what they eat?
Sebastian Tri (27 days ago)
viagra is very dangerous... how about scaring the heart muscle..
White Ninja (27 days ago)
I think the most severe side effect from Viagra is a non-steady speech pattern with inconsistent non-deliberate amplification of words proceeded by decreased amplitude for the words following such during speech delivery. Some chronic effects may be cropping up unexpectedly with said individual.
Stacey Fox (27 days ago)
I’m more concerned about the idea that “what he eats ends up in his semen” ??? Does this mean carcinogens end up in it as well?? Medications that he takes?? And how does that affect the woman?
Vegan Buddhist (27 days ago)
Stacey Fox same here, I’m wondering what about couples where the woman uses birth control
Doodle Master (27 days ago)
Stacey Fox it's probably very small amounts but if you're concerned you should spit instead of swallowing.

Stacey Fox before $ex watch what he eats drinks and inhale 💃🤷‍♂️🤫

Viagra pisses me off. "Hey, you have ED because your diet and lifestyle are shit and your arterial function is suffering because of it. The ED is a symptom of other serious health risks. But hey, take this pill and your dick will work. Problem solved. No need to treat the underlying causes and improve your overall health and longevity, that would be too hard. As long as you can still get an erection, no need to worry about dying from a preventable disease." So stupid.

Wfpb diet is the best Viagra! Also beetroot juice for the nitrates if you want that extra pump ;)
MrAlex (25 days ago)
anil karameti are they higher in nitrates? Apparently rubhard is higher per gram than beetroot but beetroot is denser and more convenient. I usually throw both in a smoothie and it really helps with strength training and cardio.
anil karameti (25 days ago)
MrAlex Betroot? What about watermelon, pistachios and pomegranete?

what happens to the seamen being ejaculated into women's vaginas if they contain this hormone or smokes or caffeine. Does it increase the risk of women getting cancer?

ladyplantenergy Mhm there are lots of idiots out there
ladyplantenergy (26 days ago)
I know that semen can live days and whats with fish smell? I eat vegan and have no smell. There are some real idiots out there and I thought I was just asking a simple question.

A Guy I know got a stroke from some fake black market viagra he bought online at age 41, he ended up paralysed on one side... Hearing about frequent ejaculation being protective makes me a happy wanker!
Isaac Rowley (27 days ago)
So viagra bad, ejaculating good... can we get a video on the optimal frequency of ejaculations per pay or week, what is the sweet spot for reducing cancer. I may have to up my game just to survive longer LOL.

Dariusz Lacheta (26 days ago)
Apparently 42 times a day was deadly for a 16y old boy but man can handle more and 62 was deadly dose before his heart give up so do your math and set safe limit like up to 20 a day and not straight in a row :)
RWS (26 days ago)
Perhaps the only study that Greger has personal experience with.
Devin Balasi (27 days ago)
10 times a day

Dr Gregor links this video in the comments, but I think it's too important to leave out of the discussion: *ED is a common symptom of clogged arteries and a powerful predictor of future heart attacks.* https://nutritionfacts.org/video/survival-of-the-firmest-erectile-dysfunction-and-death/ A very low-fat, whole plant food diet has been scientifically, clinically shown to reverse artery blockages (link below); so far nothing else has. But "vegan" isn't a magic pill here, any diet high in fat and junk food can promote atherosclerosis and erectile dysfunction. Study: http://dresselstyn.com/JFP_06307_Article1.pdf Middle-aged man discussing ED after participating in the study: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVXzT_RBxFk&feature=youtu.be&t=303

The pharmaceutical industry that is pushing toxic laden vaccines on children and slowly poisoning the world's population.
Philip J Fry (27 days ago)
James Esteron Vaccines have way more side effects than cigarettes. It says right on the insert of any vaccine that it can kill you or paralyze you permanently or cause any number of auto immune diseases or cause the disease its supposed to protect you from and it will also say "This product has not been tested for its potential to cause cancer" They have never been tested in double blind controlled trials and are not at all safe. Hospital infection is the 3rd leading cause of death in North America so health care workers have a lot of work and a lot of explaining to do but they are mostly like any other gov't employee which means they don't give a shit about anything except their benefits and union wages. They go on strike all the time, what does that tell you about how much they care for people?
Philip J Fry (27 days ago)
Beautifully Bree You sound ignorant. Try reading the insert on any vaccine, it says right there it can kill you & we don't know why and we also don't bother to see if vaccines cause cancer because they most definitely do. Anyone who voluntarily takes a vaccine is a baffoon.
James Esteron (27 days ago)
deanna b Vaccines are safe, this has been tested and proven countless times. Most people in Healthcare have a genuine interest in helping people, I know many.

For those that take these drugs the very mild risks you highlight look acceptable.
emailjwr (20 days ago)
Philip J Fry - I quoted you in my previous comment, and used your own source to debunk your quote lol. So yep, you are the one :)
Philip J Fry (20 days ago)
emailjwr You haven't debunked anything. Vegans have no protection from alzheimers disease and the 2 biggest risk groups are diabetics and alcoholics which are both sugar addictions. I think you're confused or something, were you talking to someone else?
emailjwr (20 days ago)
Philip J Fry - so I debunked your claim, and yet you still seem to cling. Maybe, consider that using statins is inferior just maintaining a healthy weight and cholesterol in the first place? Also, this video is germane to the topic. https://youtu.be/Y15yI5LLlNY
Philip J Fry (22 days ago)
emailjwr Ever delve in to the science based evidence behind any of Dr Greger's videos? Its scant and heavily biased and he quite often leaves out important information. Your brain is made from cholesterol and there's no debating that but if you think there's no link then I would ask you to explain the massive correlation between statin drugs and alzheimers disease. They also cause erectile dysfunction. My bias is also backed up by my own personal experience and by my yrs of experience treating people with various health issues. Not just because I like the way meat tastes or whatever.
emailjwr (22 days ago)
Philip J Fry - "Your brain and all of your hormones and every cell membrane is made form cholesterol so its important to eat it actually." Even using the pro-meat author that you linked me to, your claim is immediately refuted: the cholesterol in the brain is not the cholesterol we eat. "Thankfully, even though plant foods contain zero grams of cholesterol, vegan diets probably do NOT cause low brain cholesterol. This is because the cholesterol in our brains doesn't come from the cholesterol we eat! Cholesterol is too big and bulky to cross the blood-brain barrier from the body’s blood vessels into the brain tissue—so the brain makes all of its own cholesterol on site." I sense based on your over-reach with this claim, as well as your apparent reference to Shawn Baker as a reliable source of nutrition information, that your slant is pretty strong in the animal products direction. It's a free country, you can believe whatever you want to believe, but I think when your bias is that strong, it would be better to only stick to making statements that you can back up with peer-reviewed evidence.
