  • pam on Oct, 21, 2012:

    I am a physician and know that medicine and or the medical practice has significant limitations. I suggest we look to what we put in our body and how we care for our body to treat/prevent many of the illnesses that face us. Instead of being angry that medicine doesn't solve our problems, exercise and education about nutrition is extremely important. I encourage all to read Paleo diet by Cordain and Power healing by Galland.


    Sam Serafino Contrasto on Mar, 27, 2011:

    I have been taking cildenafil citrate for more than 4 years along with aspirin, high blood pressure meds, and cholesterol meds. i have noticed joint and muscle pain increase tremendously. I am now 63 years old and do not wish to give up sex but I may not have a choice since I no longer can perform due to the pain, which is causing the Viagra not to work because of the muscle pain. An erection is not possible with this much pain. I believe this drug is necessary but it requires more study on the long term effects. It is important to mention that this pain moves about in various locations, intensifies but never goes away. Areas effected right shoulder front, and rear, left wrist left elbow, knees, right arm, and hand, lower back, swelling all over. I feel that some of these joints may have existed prior to taking the above drugs. I also have been told that I have some arthritis in the lower back area. All in all I feel the medical profession has failed us terribly in regards to curring many ailments such as arthritis, cancer, diabeties, hell even the common cold. Drug companies will not produce cures only treatment meds so they can line their pockets. Governments will not allow cures because they do not have the resources for long life. Terrible position for humans to be in at time.
