Sex reduces heart disease. An inexpensive treatment option?
byJan 26th 2010 10:00AM
Over a 16-year period, each man was regularly quizzed on how often he had sex and then checked for signs of heart disease. Researchers took into account other risk factors, such as their age, weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The results showed men who made love at least twice a week were much less likely to have heart disease than those whose sexual encounters were limited to once a month or less.
Whatever the reason, there are millions of men happy to hear the news, including my husband. He has had cardiovascular disease for many years due to high lipids. He has had multiple stress tests, and three angioplasties with stints. He now informs me that I am the solution to his problems and I need to step up to the plate. He points out that having sex is a whole lot cheaper than an angioplasty. A lot more fun too.
