  • Aloha Doc Sheffield Moore, and Doc Tim, Great talk, and so many questions. Obviously the Athletes are ahead of the curve, but what about those of us nearing seventy - active, but old. Should we try a week of viagra in order to compliment the exercise we are doing to stay mobile? (without intent to use it for sex, sex -at our age can be just to much work. ) How long do the effects last after the lowest dose is administered for a week? And lastly, should I send this talk to my Doctor at the VA- as he works with many many sedentary patients . Granted at the VA a lot of the inactivity is caused by injuries and wounds from war, but obesity is prevelant too. Should he think of Viagra as a possible treatment plan for those with broken hips, or knee replacements, or simple arthritis? Or is it there not enough evidence to use it in a Clinical Setting? Those charts you showed were stunning, and I can see why you didn't believe your own data, for that moves the aging process back a decade or more. I don't think you can find that kind of activity in a control group over the age of fifty five- at least that is what I garnered from the graphs. Thanks again for a great talk, and admire the fact that you spoke of Viagra for more than fifteen minutes, without a single sexual reference until the very end. I am a retired Stand-up Comic and admired your restraint. So here is a simple Viagra Joke: My husband is such a putz, that when he took Viagra, all he got was a stiff neck. " If that passes the reviewer of these comments. Smiles, Kevin so close to seventy I can hear the echo of my life bouncing off of it.
