Jet lag?

What is this silly world coming to? I came across this article today:

Argentinian researchers have rather unaccountably discovered that Viagra helps ameliorate the effects of "jet lag" in hamsters, and might do the same for humans.

According to New Scientist, hamsters who were favoured with small doses of sildenafil, punted as Viagra, coped better with a simulated six-hour time-zone shift than their non-chemical-hardened chums - adapting to the jet lag up to 50 per cent faster.


THANKGOODNESS! Thank you Argentinian researchers for looking into further uses for this 'magic pill'. Ha.
