Testosterone Therapy Linked to Serious Cardiac Problems
On January 31, 2014, the FDA officially announced that it was launching an investigation into testosterone therapy drugs. Testosterone is the hormone responsible for male development and masculine characteristics. The investigation comes on the heels of two recent scientific studies showing an increased risk of serious cardiovascular problems including, heart attack, blood clots, stroke and death.
An article in the New York Times explores the correlation between the rise in men using testosterone therapy products and cardiac events. In spite of the increased health risk, testosterone therapy is extremely lucrative, bringing in over $2 billion in sales in 2012 alone.
