Brazilian Health Minister Urges More Sex to Prevent Disease

April 28, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Fazendo sexo, fazendo amor, tendo relações sexuais; it all boils down to the same advice from a Brazilian health minister— sex and lots of it. During Health Minister Jose Gomes Temporao’s campaign to prevent high blood pressure, he recommended regular vigorous exercise as a preventative measure, including sex and dancing.

High blood pressure is actually a serious health problem in Brazil, affecting about a quarter of the population. “People need to be active. A weekend football game must not be the only physical activity for a Brazilian. Adults need to do exercise: walk, dance and have safe sex,” said Temporao.

And in case there was any misunderstanding abut his sextytime prescription, Temporao purposely singled out sex, as a highly recommended form of exercise.

“It’s not a joke. It’s serious. Having regular physical exercises also means sex, always with protection of course,” he said.

Fazendo sexo for all! Now, that’s a health prescription that’s easy to follow.

    Having lived in Brazil for the last seven years, I would say this advice is either redundant or he was being facetious about the form of exercise.

    What would be more useful is advice not to eat beans and bread at every meal,eat less in general and take more advantage of the delicious fruits and vegetables that grow wild almost everywhere in Brazil.
