I've spent a lot of time trying to understand how H2S gets produced by yeast and lees so that I can keep it out of my meads. Now some pointy headed scientists have gone and discovered that H2S may have an effect similar to Viagra. The story is HERE (http://sciencenow.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/2009/303/1).

Instead of gulping oysters, maybe I just need to eat rotten eggs and to drink stinky mead (I have no problem producing that)!

There is no substitute for HARD science! ;D

Physiologist Rui Wang of Lakehead University in Ontario, Canada, welcomes the findings...

Well, he's certainly in the right field. ;D

I still think it's funny that Viagra was developed as to treat hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Pfizer never thought anyone would be interested that pesky little side effect as a primary use!
