  1. Hair growth drug can wreck your sex life

    FDA warns Propecia can cause sexual dysfunction

    You don't have to suffer a prostate problem to be given a dangerous and emasculating prostate drug -- just tell your doc you want more hair.

    The "magic hair-come-back pill" he'll almost certainly offer you is Propecia, which is really just a smaller dose of finasteride -- aka the prostate drug Proscar. And like most prostate treatments, it "works" by cutting off your flow of manly hormones.

    Naturally, you'll be less of a man as a result. More specifically, you may have to kiss your sex life goodbye...

    But hey, at least you'll have a great head of hair.

    If all this sounds familiar, it's because I've warned you about this bad med before. I mention it again not only because some men clearly haven't gotten the message -- but because now, even the FDA has woken up just long enough to issue its own warning.

    The feds say finasteride has been reported to kill your erections -- and if you do manage to get it up, it can prevent you from having an orgasm.

    Frankly, I don't know which is worse: Being unable to start, or unable to finish.

    In addition to taking away the ability, it can rob you of the desire by sapping your libido. And if all that's not enough, it has also been linked to other ejaculatory problems including poor sperm quality and even infertility.

    And for the icing on the cake, decreased libido can last even after you stop taking the drug. Since many men start losing their hair again when they stop the drug, you won't even have that luxurious mane to console you.

    If you're not ready to slap a "BALD IS BEAUTIFUL" bumper sticker on your car, I've got some good news: You CAN get your hair back without risking your sex life in the process.

    The key is to inhibit the production of DHT. Much like you body's autoimmune response, DHT attacks your hair follicles as if they're foreign objects.

    And the best way to take control of DHT production is by inhibiting the enzyme that's responsible for converting testosterone into DHT, 5a-reductase. That's where saw palmetto comes in. This nutrient is most famous for its prostate-supporting action. But it could also have a powerful effect on male-pattern baldness.

    I recommend 400mg of saw palmetto along with 100mg of beta-sitosterol.

    Research has also shown that an unsaturated fatty acid called gamma linolenic acid (GLA) may help inhibit 5a-reductase, putting the brakes on the conversion of testosterone to DHT.

    No drugs... no expensive and smelly shampoos... no hair weaves... just the one thing your body needs to stop the shedding and regrow your hair.

  2. Sex, lies and... celery?

    The myth of vegan-powered sex

    The fastest way to ruin your sex life is with a vegan diet, and that's the truth. But the bunny-huggers at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals want you to believe that beans, sprouts, and soy will turn you into some kind of sexual superhero.

    PUH-leaze!

    The vegan diet has absolutely NONE of the nutrients the human body needs for a healthy libido. Yet in a new online ad campaign, PETA shows a young woman with a neck injury caused by a vegan boyfriend who put her head through a wall during their celery-powered sex session.

    The video has gone "viral," meaning it's been seen by millions of people on the Internet. But if this is what passes for "viral," stand back -- because you don't want to risk being infected by this one.

    The human libido -- especially the male libido -- is powered by protein, which is almost completely absent from the vegan diet. That's why most veg-heads get their protein from buckets of soy-based supplements, along with the usual chunks of tofu and soyburgers.

    Just one problem: Soy is actually a plant version of estrogen. It's such a good clone of human estrogen that the body actually thinks it's getting a hormone boost with every bite.

    You know what too much estrogen will do to a man, right?

    The PETA commercial claims a man who goes vegan will "bring it like a tantric porn star." In reality, all that estrogen means he's more likely to "bring it" like Liberace.

    But besides protein, another great libido-booster is zinc -- and the best sources of it are all decidedly un-vegan, especially oysters and liver.

    But forget for a minute the absurdity of the "vegans make sex dynamos" claim... because vegan or not, any man who puts a woman's head through a wall during sex should be arrested, not celebrated. Does anyone beside me think it's downright sick that the same people who will do whatever they can to protect rats and squirrels advocate sex so violent a women has to get injured?

    If that's what passes for "great vegan sex," count yourself lucky you're not getting any.
