Is this serious?

Yes, it is very serious.  A commentary published in August of 2013 in JAMA described the “Low T” campaign as a template for how to market a disease and its cure to a huge market of men.  The commentary suggests the pharmaceutical industry has created the need for these Low T drugs where a need did not exist and is now capitalizing on this so-called need at the potential expense of thousands of victims.
