A joke among two Texas AgriLife Research scientists later turned into a fully-funded study. Viagra can aid fetal development in female sheep. Female sheep (ewes) are an agriculturally important species, which can serve as an excellent animal model for studying the physiology of human pregnancy, the researchers said. Viagra ( sildenafil citrate ), which is used to treat male erectile dysfunction, enhanced blood flow in pregnant female sheep, helping send vital amino acids and other nutrients needed in fetal development. The study's results not only will assist with solving fetal development problems in other livestock, but possibly in humans, said Dr.
When buying olive oil, how do you choose the best quality oil off the shelf? As opposed to plant, olive oil dreads light, heat and air. Over-exposing olive oil to these environmental factors can expedite the breaking down of oil nutrients and make it turn rancid.

Craig Gundersen, an associate professor in the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics at the University of Illinois, is a member of the Technical Advisory Group for this report. The "Hunger in America" study reports that more than 100, 600 people, including 33, 198 children, receive emergency food each year through the Eastern Illinois Foodbank and the food pantries, soup kitchens, and other emergency food programs it serves.
