"CONCLUSION: These data showed that a testosterone threshold of 440 ng/dL was associated with increased Framingham 10-year CVD risk in middle-aged and elderly men. Poor sexual performance, decreased morning erection, and loss of libido had an impact on the testosterone threshold for CVD risk. The threshold level was higher in men with sexual dysfunction.""

Notice that men with sexual dysfunction had a higher risk. This is probably because erectile dysfunction is a pretty good prognisticator of impending heart disease (as the pudendal and penile arteries get filled with plaque).

This should be no surprise to anyone on here. Check out these links for an abundance of research showing that, generally speaking, low testosterone is dangerous to our arteries and heart:



also, what's with the " the pudendal and penile arteries get filled with plaque)" is that happening? those arnt high stress areas, right? seems unlikely to me
