“Bio Identical” hormones are being marketed strongly as a safer alternative to other forms. What is “bio identical” testosterone? In this vid, I explain the facts behind supposed bio identical testosterone.
“Low T” or testosterone deficiency syndrome is a very popular topic these days, with men getting prescriptions for injections, gels, patches, and other T replacement options.
But is it safe? Are there side effects? What are the possible negatives to treatment of Low T? I cover what most medical professionals fail to tell you!
“Low T” or low testosterone is a common message seen on TV commercials and discussed on web forums, etc. Is it a legit problem or an invented syndrome to sell testosterone?
BTW, you’ll find a number of articles and other vids on the topic of testosterone, and HRT/TRT for men by searching the site here if interested in more detailed information.
Although I covered this topic in detail in an earlier article HERE, it’s been a while since I updated the topic. So, here’s my latest thoughts on the issue of soy via this vid.

Big Pharma Looks To Cash In On Sarcopenia
I wrote an extensive article on sarcopenia (age related loss of muscle masss) in 2007 HERE. As expected, this has become a big area of research and interest. An article just published in the NY Times business section entitled “Doctors Seek Way to Treat Muscle Loss” covers the commercial interests in this condition. Various comments I don’t agree with, but it’s clear, as I predicted, this would be an area of focus once it was fully appreciated how much $$$ it costs the health care system and how much $$$ can be made from a magic pill to treat it.
