Throughout his life a man's "manliness," physically and psychologically, is almost exclusively dictated by the quantity of a magical substance in his body, the hormone called testosterone. Here is the first up-to-date book for the layman on this amazing male sex hormone.
A noted endocrinologist, Dr. Herbert Kupperman, has written an introduction endorsing the book's accuracy. What the reader will learn is not only what testosterone does, but how taking testosterone can be a safe therapy that enhances the middleaged and older male's sex life. There is also useful advice on the steps any man can take to help his testicles produce more testosterone through diet and other life-style changes.
A key subject The Virility Factor confronts is testosterone's relationship to prostate cancer. Author Robert Bahr, the noted medical writer, shows that the hormone does not cause cancer, while testosterone can speed the growth of an already developed cancer, its deficiency may be a factor in the prostate malignancy of older men. Nor does testosterone therapy cause glandular atrophy, a widespread misconception. A controversial section of the book presents evidence that an inadequate testosterone level during fetal development is one cause of homosexuality.
