Viagra Linked To Higher STD Risk In Seniors

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.
