(NaturalNews) New research out of the University of Washington (UW) has some astounding new propositions for the use of Viagra, an erectile dysfunction drug made by Pfizer Inc. According to the report, young boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) can benefit from taking the drug because it allegedly treats the heart problems that typically emerge as a result of the disease.

Eager to expand the scope of Viagra's prescribed uses, some researchers are now claiming that the drug helps to treat all sorts of diseases, even though it is linked to hearing loss (http://www.naturalnews.com/029875_Viagra_hea...), infertility (http://www.naturalnews.com/023856_viagra_fer...), and nerve damage (http://www.naturalnews.com/020186_drugs_nerv...), among other things. But none of this has stopped co-authors Stanley Froehner, a professor of physiology and biophysics at UW, and Joseph Beavo, a professor of pharmacology at UW, from suggesting that Viagra now be used on adolescent boys.

DMD is a severe degenerative disease that eats away at spinal muscles, confining people who have it to wheelchairs by the time they are roughly ten years old. DMD can eventually cause heart failure as well, which is what the study authors claim Viagra will help prevent. But such a proposition is not only irresponsible based on the drug's many side effects, but insane when considering the repercussions.

Froehner and Beavo have even suggested that young boys between the ages of eight and twelve be given Viagra as a preventive measure, before they even show any signs of heart problems. And they say that the dosage amounts for such purposes will most likely be higher than those given to older men to treat erectile dysfunction.

Some helpful, natural treatments for muscular dystrophy include reishi mushrooms (http://www.naturalnews.com/025568_mushrooms_...), Coenzyme Q10 (http://www.naturalnews.com/022706.html), and possibly even gene therapy (http://www.naturalnews.com/007372.html).
