look who just turned 10!

i came across an interesting article on the NPR website this morning:

Viagra Turns 10 by Renee Montagne
Morning Edition, March 27, 2008

The "little blue pill" — Viagra — turns 10 on Thursday.
On March 27, 1998, the Food and Drug Administration gave pharmaceutical company Pfizer the go-ahead to sell what would become one of the world's best-known pills.
In Viagra's first month on the market, doctors wrote more than 500,000 prescriptions. Former presidential candidate Bob Dole once plugged the pill in TV commercials.
The drug has been a long-term boost for Pfizer's profits. Last year, it brought the pharmaceutical giant more than $1.7 billion.


i fired up a google search using the keywords viagra and yoga... and the results were quite pleasant, so to speak, because it led me to this youtube video posted by YogaYatra, who says "It's a well known fact that You won't need Viagra if You Yoga."

so click on the link below and be prepared to be amazed at what you see :)

Nice video!

Also interesting that Viagra was named after the Sanskrit word for "tiger." For those of us who prefer not to medicate, the yoga pose vyaghrasana might be a good one to practice for improving circulation/blood flow to lower body and reproductive system naturally.

hmmm... gives the phrase "put a tiger in your tank" a whole new meaning, doesn't it?

thanks, dan!
