New Study Clears Testosterone Therapy of Cardiovascular Risks

 

If you follow medical news at all, you may have heard in recent years that testosterone therapy could pose a risk to the heart. Recently, a team of researchers from Bologna, Italy, set out to prove or disprove this theory, which had been widely reported as fact.

In the recent issue of the journal Expert Review of Cardiovascular Therapy, the myth that stem cell testosterone therapy is bad for the heart was finally put to rest when researchers at Azienda Usl Bologna Maggiore-Bellaria Hospital in Bologna found that in healthy men the risk of cardiovascular side effects was no different for men using stem cell testosterone therapy than it was for those on a placebo.
