Lack Of Sleep Could Lower Men's Sex Drives

I have not shared an article on testosterone lately----I just noticed this one on the HuffingtonPost.com site. Granted, the number of participants in this study, conducted by The University of Chicago, is very small, but I was fascinated by how much of a decrease there was in the participants' testosterone levels over an 11 night period. Testosterone levels do not just affect libido, but also muscle and bone strength (we don't think of men as dealing with osteoporosis, but by the time they reach the age of 65, the incidence is nearly as high as it is in women). Share this with the guy in your life----but if he's sleeping, wait until he wakes up, he needs his rest (don't we all!)
