Penis Health News for Cyclists – Preventing Permanent Damage With No-Nose Seats

Although this year’s exceptionally harsh winter weather is still a factor, the end may finally be in sight, and many cycling enthusiasts are looking forward to getting back on the road. The roads are still icy in many areas, but it’s never too early to start thinking about the coming season, and part of every cyclist’s planning should include attention to the effects of riding on their bodies. For men, in particular, cycling more than 3 hours per week has been found to have a substantial effect on erectile health – and men of all ages may be affected. Fortunately, this problem is reversible if it is treated correctly, and with a few adjustments to a man’s technique and equipment, it may be possible to avoid it altogether. The cause for loss of penis function, as well as some hints for penis care for cyclists, are discussed here.

How does cycling affect penis function?

Getting an erection and maintaining it long enough to complete the act of intercourse requires nerve signals from the brain to travel along the neural pathways to the erectile tissue; these signals direct the blood vessels leading into the penis to expand, allowing increased blood flow to the area. As the blood rushes into the erectile chambers, the spongy tissue inside them expands, preventing the blood from leaving the area, and an erection occurs.

Sitting in a bicycle saddle places an enormous amount of pressure on the perianal area; because the artery and nerves that serve the penile tissue run directly through this area, they are subject to this pressure, and they can easily sustain damage that prevents both nerve signals and blood from reaching the area. Men who spend hours cycling every week often experience numbness and tingling in the penis, and they frequently report loss of erectile function.

Can this condition be treated?

Erectile dysfunction related to bicycle seats may be reversible if it is treated correctly. In many cases, surgery may be required to repair the damaged tissue; this surgery has a significant success rate.

How can men avoid cycling-related loss of function?

Doctors and fitness experts often advocate the use of a specially-designed no-nose bicycle seat. This design eliminates the pressure to the perianal area, substantially lowering the risk of erectile issues. For men who cycle for recreation, the no-nose seat can be a good alternative. For men who ride competitively, this option may not be feasible, because the “nose” portion of the seat may affect power and balance in the racing position. In this case, adjusting the seat position or the position of the handle bars may help to reduce some of the pressure to the area. In addition, men may benefit from standing in the pedals whenever possible to relieve the pressure and restore blood flow

Julia Miller, Health News and Acai Berry – The Mysterious Connection

In the last few weeks we have received numerous emails about Julia Miller – a health news reporter – who investigated the weight loss benefits of the Acai Berry. We have heard so much about the Acai Berry and claims that it could help you lose weight, that we were excited to learn that a health news reported had some testing on the supplement. Unforunately, as we investigated further we learned that Julia Miller was not who she claimed to be.

Some Background on the Acai Berry

The Acai Berry is a small purple berry that grows in the Amazon Rainforest. The berry grows in bunches high in the Acai Palm tree. The Acai berry has a very large seed – with only about 10% of the berry edible skin and pulp. While the Acai Berry is small in size, it is large in nutrition – with more antioxidants than any other fruit. The fact that the Acai berry can help increase energy, improve sleep patterns, reduce inflammation, boost the immune system and aide in digestion is widely accepted. What is much more open to debate are the weight loss powers of the Acai berry.

The Acai Berry and Colon Cleanse – A Match Made in Marketing Heaven?

One of the common themes among web sites that promote Acai for weight loss is to pair it with a colon cleanse. This seems liked an interesting combination so we did a search at PubMed for any clinical studies on the combination of Acai and a colon cleanse – we did not find any studies. It looks like the idea that the two supplements need to be used together is more a matter of marketing than science.

Julia Miller And Her 4 Weeks of Weight Loss

So we were skeptical about weight loss claims, but the report we read from Health News 7 sounded so promising. Julia Miller, a senior Health Reporter, decided to try an Acai supplement and a colon cleanse to see if she really lost weight. In the article, she reports on her results each week and in the end she lost over 28 pounds in 30 days! The article also contains plenty of positive reports from other readers who left comments. We were thrilled until we decided to dig a little deeper and find out more about Julia Miller and her network – Health News 7.

Will the Real Julia Miller Please Stand Up?

We used Google to do a search on Julia Miller and Acai and we were shocked what we found. We found at least 8 different sites with slightly different news names – Health News 6, News Health 9, New 7 Health, etc. They all had the same report from Julia Miller – and a picture of Julia Miller. Here is the amazing thing – every picture of Julia Miller is different! We are not talking a little difference, in one photo she is blond with blue eyes – in the next she has brown hair, brown eyes and about 10 years younger. No way Acai could do that!

It was starting to become clear that this health reporter was really just different stock photos and not a reporter at all. It also was becoming clear that the news sites were not actually news sites at all. We felt we were getting very close to the truth on this story, we just needed to dig a little deeper

Health News: Medical Breakthroughs

Over the years, medical scientists have worked so hard to shed light to the most puzzling areas of health and medicine. These people spend most of their time doing research for the benefit of the humanity. If you are reading health news on a regular basis, you would understand how diligent these people are. Here are some of the breakthroughs in medical and health science that have a significant impact on our lives.

Disarming HIV

One of the most talked about breakthroughs today is the discovery of the Achilles Heel of the HIV. American and European scientists have found a way to disarm the virus and keep it from wreaking havoc in the immune system. The method involves extracting the cholesterol from the virus, a method that extinguishes its defenses. Without this cholesterol, the virus loses its weaponry and becomes open for the human immune system to destroy. HIV is known for disabling the adaptive response of the immune system. Since the discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus, scientists have been finding a means to fight it. None so far has been so successful. Vaccines in the past were useless. But things might have changed now that a new way to weaken the virus has been discovered.

Aspirin for Cancer Prevention

It has been found out that taking small amounts of aspirin on a daily basis can curb risk of stroke and heart disease. We already know that. But recent studies indicate it can also decrease risk of cancer. Studies done in United Kingdom have been conducted to monitor subjects taking about 75-300 mg of aspirin a day. After three years, those taking aspirin had cancer risk reduced by approximately 25%. Then after 5 years, risk of cancer was reduced to 37%.

Studies indicate that daily intake of aspirin cuts down cancer risk by preventing metastasis. Nonetheless, there is another problem with aspirin intake. Doctors warn that regular intake of aspirin may cause stomach bleeding. Moreover, people who take aspirin daily are, ironically, at risk of hemorrhagic strokes.

Placebos as Drugs

Placebos are “empty” agents used in research to determine the true effects of drugs. This time they are used as treatment agents on their own. The power of placebos comes from suggestion-not from the placebos themselves. For instance, studies show that when people are told they are getting good exercise, they tend to lose more weight than those who are not told the same thing. There are already many studies that test the ability of placebo to treat disorders. Placebos do not contain active ingredients to target the illness. They work by changing the person’s reaction to their illness.

Exercise to Defy Aging

People already know the benefits of exercise. Health news articles have discussed too much about exercise. Anyone can now say exercise relieves stress, improves cardiovascular health, enhances immunity, and so on. What we might have missed to note is that exercise promises to reverse aging. This assumption was made by scientists who studies laboratory mice subjected to exercise program. These mice had better muscles, hearts, kidneys, and brains than those that did not go through exercise program. Their hair was also shinier and thicker
