A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Erectile Dysfunction – 5 October 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

Judging by all the ads promoting pharmaceuticals for erectile dysfunction (ED), there must be a lot of men out there who are unhappy with their faulty equipment – and so desperate that they’re willing to risk all sorts of serious side effects from taking those meds. This amounts to treating the symptom instead of the root cause, which is a limited blood supply resulting from blocked arteries.

If a poor blood supply causes impotence, most likely arteries elsewhere in the body are blocked, also. There is so much documented evidence that eating animal products causes plaque on the interior walls of blood vessels which narrows the passageway for blood flow.

Isn’t it ironic that the very foods that promote erectile dysfunction (as well as heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, etc.) – meat, cheese, and other animal-derived products – are promoted as food for “real men”?! Impotence is a steep price to pay for a macho food illusion; but on the other hand, it may be a form of justice for the suffering inflicted upon the animals.

Real men who extend their compassion to all animals don’t seem to suffer from any erectile dysfunction.
