    Actually the product directions go into great detail about what not to do with testosterone gel.

    It's gel containing testosterone. Men rub it onto themselves to increase their testosterone levels.

    Here is a link to more info. (Testim)

    bummer for the kids. It's one thing to use that stuff when you're post puberty or in your twilight years. The long term effects on those children will undoubtedly manifest.

    "Inappropriate enlargement" ??? give me some, i would gladly have used this as a 12 yo.

    all the confidence and much needed self-esteem a teen would want, all in a tube

    how could this be a bad thing?

    i'd gladly get some for my boys.

    besides for the massive plus, are there any negatives?

    Well, the article did mention some "aggressive behavior" and "mood swings". Then again, that is typical for some preteen and teen boys.

    However, if you read other news articles on this topic, you'd find out some children were younger than 5. Nothing like a 5 year old going through puberty.

    "These drugs are approved for an important medical need, but can have serious, unintended side effects if not used properly," Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, said in a statement.

    Dr. Woodcock!? What a name to get associated with penis size!?

    Just like Dr. DeCock - who provide expert advice on circumcision.

    It also shrinks your balls. Dangerous stuff. Better off just working out the natural way.
