Using Dynamite to Treat Male Impotence?!


Scientists have created a rub-on gel to treat erectile dysfunction, which contains tiny doses of the high explosive nitroglycerine which is used to make dynamite.
But this isn’t the first time nitroglycerine (in small quantities) has been used to treat a medical condition, as it was first used as a treatment for chest pain and, for more than 100 years, has been used as a medicine for angina (a heart condition).
The gel, which is currently undergoing clinical trials in the UK, is applied to a man’s genitals shortly before sexual activity.
Once the gel is absorbed, nitric oxide gas is released into the system, which helps to dilate the tiny blood vessels that allow blood to flow into the area during sexual stimulation.
Nearly 200 men in the UK, who suffer from erectile dysfunction, are currently trialing the gel to see if it can improve their sex lives.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a condition where the penis does not harden and expand enough for actual sexual penetration, or when an erection cannot be kept long enough to engage in sexual activity, despite sexual stimulation.
It has been reported that 1 in 10 men in the UK will suffer from ED at some point in their lives. And, while it's more common in men over 40 years old, it can happen at any age, for a variety of reasons.
There are Prescription Only Medications (POMs) available as treatments for erectile dysfunction such as Viagra (Sildenafil), Levitra (Vardenafil) and Cialis (Tadalafil). However, around 30% of men who take these medicines see no improvement after taking them, and some men also experience adverse side-effects from the medication and must stop taking it.
Men who suffer from the side-effects of the treatments, or see no improvements after taking the tablet form of medicine, are then forced to either use other options, such as penis pumps or drugs that are injected straight into the penis, or just do nothing.
Therefore, scientists are hoping that the experimental gel could be the new solution and act more quickly than drugs like Viagra, which has to be taken about an hour before sexual activity.
If it does get approved, it will most likely only be available as a Prescription Only Medication (like Cialis, Levitra, and Viagra).
