Taking the SEX out of Pfizers Little Blue Pill

Taking the SEX out of Pfizers Little Blue Pill

Men who use Viagra to get a boost in the bedroom could find that the little blue pill also increases
the risk of developing melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, a preliminary study finds.

Researchers found that men who took sildenafil, best known as Viagra, were about 84 percent
more likely to develop melanoma than men who didn’t take the drug.

Because it's just one early study, no one is suggesting that men stop taking Viagra to treat erectile
dysfunction, said Dr. Abrar Qureshi, professor and chair of the dermatology department in the
Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University.

“But people who are on the medication and who have a high risk for developing melanoma may
consider touching base with their primary care providers,” said Qureshi, co-author of the study of
nearly 26,000 men published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Viagra may increase the risk of melanoma because it affects the same genetic pathway that allows
the skin cancer to become more invasive, Qureshi said. Those who took the drug weren't at

higher risk of other, less-dangerous skin cancers, such as basal cell or squamous cell cancers.

About 76,100 new melanoma cases are expected to be diagnosed in the U.S. in 2014, and about
9,710 people will die, including about 6,470 men.

Qureshi and colleagues at several sites in the U.S. and China analyzed data about Viagra use and
skin cancer from the Health Professionals’ Follow-up Study, a long-term study of male doctors and
other health care workers.

You just had to mention Pfizer, ey Zacharias 馃悵 Voulgaris?

" A. Pfizer came up with the Viagra medication, a med that works. Then, there is the other statement that seems like a platitude but it would be difficult to disagree with:"

I have to admit; I never understood what the big deal was about sex.聽 My logical mind tells me it鈥檚 a reproductive function.聽 My gender was female and, therefore, a sexual object.聽 It always got in the way of my intellectual desires.

I grew up in the days when boys and girls were segregated. Boys had their side of the playground, and we had ours.聽 Every effort was made to make sure we didn鈥檛 touch each other鈥攐h my鈥

In middle school, boys took shop and girls took home economics鈥攖hat ground on my nerves.聽 I wanted the shop with its tool and measurements, but protocol [at the time] wanted me to cook and clean and sew.

I fought for my right to take shop and lost.聽 Apparently, my gender was a problem.聽 So I did my thing, took the mandatory class, and grudgingly completed the assigned class assignments.聽 The only memorable assignment was the sewing of an apron鈥攁hhh tools, and measurements were mine.

Girls were considered to be future breeders.聽 I dreamed of going to Harvard.聽 I knew my frontal appendages would hold me back.

But let鈥檚 now discuss [what I consider to be] our imposed sexuality.聽 If we don鈥檛 gotta have it, we鈥檙e strange.聽 If we don鈥檛 want it, they give us a pill.聽 Yes, I know. It鈥檚 just a little pill but it comes with so many negatives.聽

Note the highlighted area in the article above.聽 A few months ago, I did not know so much progress had been made in the field of genetics, but I do now.聽 Only a pathway is being affected by Pfizer鈥檚 Viagra.聽 My studies in genetics were cut short, or maybe I don鈥檛 remember [it was loong ago] so let鈥檚 take a look at some information.聽

My purpose in exposing you and me to this information is to show us all just how complicated that little pill is that we put in our mouths.

Asif there are not already way 100 many highly substandard pharmaceutical drigs on the market. now


along comes female Viagra” This same drug, while in the testing phase, has already been rejected by
DA twice since 2010 Nevertheless, the FDA almost always follows the advice of its appointed

experts, 50 it is expected to be fully approved soon despite serious side effects.




“To approve this drug will set the worst kind of precedent = that companies that spend enoug!

money can force the FDA to approve useless of dangerous drugs.” said, Dr Adnane #ugh


Berman of Georgetown University, the New York Times reported [1]

When academic experts such as Dr Fugh-Beman, however, speak out so strongly against such ill-
advised approvals, there can be only one reason The fox, as usual, must be guarding the hen house at
the EDA. In other words, the male-dominated pharmaceutical industry has enough representatives
working for the FDA, that drug safety issues for women have been relegated to the priority of future

profits earned by Big Pharma

11s clear that women have been slighted by the FDA since the introduction of “the pill” back in 1960. For


y years, many women and teenage girls have suttered unknowingly trom many of the negative side


effects caused by that oral contraceptive

We see that Pfizer鈥檚 Viagra for men is complicated and can cause complications, but the Federal Drug Administration [FDA] forges right ahead with Viagra for women.聽 And no wonder鈥β The FDA gets the bulk of its budget from the pharmaceutical industry.

As FDA approves 鈥榩ink Viagra鈥 for women, controversy persists

聽鈥淏ut others complained that all the lobbying had the potential to overshadow concerns about the drug鈥檚 safety. Dr. Adriane Fugh-Berman, director of Georgetown University鈥檚 pharmaceutical watchdog project PharmedOut, told an FDA advisory panel in June that 鈥渢o approve this drug will set the worst kind of precedent 鈥 that companies that spend enough money can force the FDA to approve useless or dangerous drugs.鈥 The panel voted 18 to 6 to recommend the drug.

Last month, three members of that advisory panel fretted in the pages of the Journal of the American Medical Assn. that the agency was forced to adjudicate questions about Addyi鈥檚 safety and effectiveness in a 鈥減olitically charged atmosphere.鈥濃

Is 鈥楶ink Viagra鈥 for Women Safe, Sexy or a Hoax?

And hey鈥攄o you know why you never hear about the possible side effects from vaccines when they are flashed on your boob-tube? 聽Such advertisements have been deemed public service announcements, so they do not have to tell you of the dangers.

Pfizer is a pharmaceutical company鈥攏othing more. It is accountable to its shareholders鈥攏ot you or me. [They really don鈥檛 care what we get up]
As long as it isn鈥檛 a lawsuit.

Copyright January 2021 by Joyce Bowen

shhh--sounds like you're prescribing and you can be prosecuted for prescribing without a license in the USA. Don't tell anyone, but Walnuts are really good for you.
I hope I'm not sued by a pharmaceutical for this (since laughter is the best medicine and all!) :-)
I do know that but you did give me a chuckle when I read your piece. Thank you.
For the record, I didn't and don't advocate the use of Viagra or any other Pfizer meds. :-) You are all free to put whatever pill you want in your mouths, so long as you don't expect others to do the same. Live and let live (or in this case, die of cancer and let others live).
