“One of the best ways Brazilians can stave off chronic illness is to engage regularly in physical exercise, especially sex, Health Minister Jose Gomes Temporao said Monday.
 
“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,” he said.
 
The minister gave the advice as he launched a campaign to prevent high blood pressure, which afflicts a quarter of Brazil’s 190-million strong population.”

Urging Brazilians to have more sex is like urging Russians to drink more vodka. Sexy Brazilians don’t need to be encouraged to do the nasty, but a safe sex message is always welcome.
 
I suffer from high blood pressure and having sex sounds a hell of a lot more fun taking pills, but I’m afraid that nothing will make my blood pressure go through the roof faster than being intimate with a woman.
 
America is such a puritanical country that if an American health official offered sex as a remedy for high blood pressure some people would be up in arms.
