Erectile Dysfunction Cure
The Onion has the scoop on the cure for erectile dysfunction and Random Occasional Nonspecific Pain and Discomfort Disorder:
"For years, scientists have been aware of the effectiveness of placebo in treating a surprisingly wide range of conditions," said Dr. Jonathan Bergen of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. "Placebo has been successful in the treatment of everything from lower-back pain to erectile dysfunction to nausea," Bergen said. "That's the beauty, and the mystery, of placebo. It's all-purpose. Think of it like aspirin, but without any of the analgesic properties."
And, in related news, trial lawyers are meeting (behind close doors, of course) to map a class action suit strategy.
