    Link: Too Much Testosterone Kills Brain Cells - I would try and think of a witty remark, but I`m just too stupid.

    "Too little testosterone is bad, too much is bad but the right amount is perfect, said Barbara Ehrlich of Yale University in Connecticut, who led the study."

    And that`s what they came up with......AMAZING. I`ve always wondered what they were doing with my tax money.......

    Yes. That is why they call it THE RIGHT AMOUNT. Geesh.

    I know other people have already pasted this but I couldn`t resist! I wonder how many years of education it took her to realise this fact... She should get a noble prize for working this out me thinks.

    Maybe that Alzheimer`s like over selectivity in the brain is what causes the 3 point higher IQ in men?

    -

    Also it`s well known you can increase your testostorone production up to 5 times, just by encorporating certain hormone stimulating exercises such as squats into your work out.

    This studdy is extremely worrysome to that effect, because it doesn`t say if only medically enduced boosting of the hormone will show signs of dementia, or if the effect can be induced naturally.

    That`s pretty alarming but again, in any case, too much water will kill you, but the quantities are barely acheivable naturally.

    No alarm there, inappropriate information here is what I call.

    Looks like Legion5 is trying to prove hes not stupid by typing out an extra long sentance which no one can be arsed to read. =/

    I`d say that men are naturally stupid but the retarded farts would only say "OMG GIRLS R DUMB." Like little school kids.

    Sorry,LochNess,but correct me if I am wrong,but don`t females have a certain amount of male hormone in their biological make up? To my reckoning,that makes females doubly stupid...

    Oh man, the comments here. Double standards ahoy!

    The second they post an article stating Men have a higher I.Q. than women, the ladies around here go bat-sh*t insane. Then comes this article and the flow of "OLOL, I coulda told them for free, lolz" There is a reason there are more men in fields concerning science and math. We think logically, and THAT is a fact. I`m not saying women don`t think logically, but on average many women think emotionally. There are always the people who don`t conform to the stereotype, but generally, I am right.

    "I`d say that men are naturally stupid but the retarded farts would only say "OMG GIRLS R DUMB." Like little school kids."

    Oh the irony. You tell us men are naturally stupid, yet you complain when boys say girls are stupid. Great logic there. Please leave.

    How about both sexes have their faults? Women are insane hypocrites and men are pigs only on the search for sex. Lets leave it at that.

    This is old news anyway. Why do you think people who take steroids have anger issues? They lose control of their emotions.

    Evolutionally, it is beneficial to be agressive. If your stronger and more cunning than others, you survive. Thats why males are generally more aggressive. It has nothing to do with brainpower, it has to do with the fact that the more assertive you are, the more successful you are in life. Steroids, on the other hand, take it to a different level.

    Kenninator, survival has nothing to do with how strong or aggressive a creature is, evolutionarily speaking. Survivability is determined by how well adapted a creature is to its environment and not how bigger\stronger\more aggressive it is than the other organisms with which it happens to coexist.
