Financial Risk Taking and Testosterone

Previous studies have found that the higher one's position in the social ladder, the higher the Testosterone levels tend to be. In light of this study then it is not surprising that we find ourselves in this current financial predicament because financiers, for reasons which escape this humble mind, earn extraordinarily high incomes. Think about it, there are any other number of professions that should be paid more because the people in these professions have much greater responsibility and experience much greater stress than those in the finance industry. Those poor souls can't go running home to mama(the Central Banks) when they stuff up, they go broke. Financiers go running to mama and expect a handout for being naughty boys. This has to stop and I hope this crisis makes everyone take a long hard look at the financial industry.

Here is a news release on the study.

Healthline just designed a virtual guide explaining how testosterone affects the body. You can see the infographic here:

This is valuable med-reviewed information that can help a man understand how affects multiple parts of their bodies and the side effects that occur from having low testosterone. I thought this would be of interest to your audience, and I’m writing to see if you would include this as a resource on your page:

If you do not believe this would be a good fit for a resource on your site, even sharing this on your social communities would be a great alternative to help get the word out.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review. Please let me know your thoughts and if I can answer any questions for you.

All the best,
