In brief: Tricky Q

If you have a "normal" t level, then extra t won't improve your health.
There are studies suggesting that higher t is associated w/less heart disease, less cancer, lower death rate, stronger bones, more muscle, less fat, stronger erections, greater sex drive, brighter mood, clearer thinking, etc, but these tend to be observational studies. Most recent one is http://bit.Ly/mhk22c.
