Somehow I doubt this is true.

The first clue would be to look at the dr's names in the article. I'm just curious as to how the article was published on CNN's web site in the first place.

Did somebody hack in to their data base? Or did CNN not catch the clues and it was published on their site?

How ever if it is true it seems I need to have a discussion with my wife and I advise the rest of you fellas to discuss the issue with your spouses or SO's. That is if you care about their health.

Which ever the case it is pretty funny, especially the dr's names.

Heres the link, check it out: http://www4.ncsu.edu/~brwilli2/cnn.html

Precisly my point. She's an extremely smart girl so I'm counting on her sense of humor kicking in so she doesn't "kick in" something else.

My wife thought it a fake, too. I told her I understood her concerns, but what if it's true? Better safe than sorry... ;^)

I clicked on the link, but nothing there. However, if you look at his homepage, it looks like this individual has quite the sense of humor:

Can't Be

This can't be fake. It's posted on the internet, therefor it's true.

I'm going to use the money Bill Gates sends me for sending e-mails to start proving these "myths" to be true.

This is so obviously fake, CNN should get a sense of humor, just look at the doctors name B.J. Sooner

Even though it's fake, I tend to belive it. The presence of the amino acid L-arginine
in male semen could very well stimulate, if ingested, the natural production of
growth hormone and thus strengthen the immune system. Incidentally, I suspect
topical application could be a valuable addition to any regimen intended to
reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

The guy should've at least dressed up the site to make it look like CNN. Like this BBC News article: Lion Mutilates 42 Midgets in Cambodian Ring-Fight
