Viagra Linked To Higher STD Risk In Seniors

Seniors who pop Viagra have higher rates of sexually transmitted diseases than seniors who don't.

Seniors who pop Viagra have higher rates of sexually transmitted diseases than seniors who don't.

Scientists made the discovery after examining a statistic from the CDC that shows there were more than six new cases of STDs per 10,000 men over the age of 40 in 2008. That's up nearly 50% from 1996.

The scientists found that men who were around the age of 60 and took the drugs had more than double the risk of contracting a disease than men in the same age group who didn't take the drugs.

Even so, Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs didn't cause or worsen STDs.
