New Hope for Men with Menstrual Cramps: Researchers Discover Cure for Crippling Disease
--Warm Loaves of Bread Provide Crucial Clue--

(April 10, 2007) – Scientists at the MacInness and Porritt Institute today announced the results of a breakthrough study on Cyclical Non-Uterine Dysmenorrhea, more commonly known as Male Menstrual Cramps. According to researchers, the cure for this debilitating, yet rarely discussed condition could be as simple as turning up the heat, turning off the lights and turning down the bed.

“For decades, great men like Columbus and DaVinci and countless other everyday men have been brought to their knees by this monthly tormentor that is male menstrual cramps,” said the study’s lead investigator, Gerhardt Fardel, MD, Ph.D., visiting fellow at MacInness and Porritt Institute. “After years of studying these men and feeling their pain, I have decoded the code to battling this disease!”

The “code” Dr. Fardel references became evident when he noted study subjects applying household items such as warm loaves of bread to their abdomen to ease their pain. The trouble was, the loaves would only stay warm for a few minutes, but menstrual pain could last for days.

“While I saw the benefits of applying warm loaves to the abdomen, I also saw the drawbacks like the lingering fresh-baked smell and odd shape. You couldn’t just throw a loaf of bread into your pocket and walk out the door,” added Dr. Fardel. “I’ve since learned about a discreet, unscented and soothing portable heat source that gives warmth for up to eight hours. It’s called ThermaCare HeatWraps and women have been secretly using these for their menstrual cramps for years.”

In addition to the application of portable heat, Dr. Fardel and colleagues also found men using other coping techniques such as shrouding in darkness (with the help of a Dr. Fardel’s patented Helmet of Darkness) and the ever-popular “spooning” method of giving and receiving group hugs.

“Because of this historically important medical breakthrough, men can now have their loaf and eat it too,” added an ecstatic Dr. Fardel.

About MacInness and Porritt Institute
The MacInnes and Porritt Institute was founded in 1791 by Arthur MacInnes and Samuel P. Porritt. The Institute’s sole mission is to find a treatment and cure for Cyclical Non-Uterine Dysmenorrhea. Now that that mission is complete, the Institute’s board of directors has no idea what they will focus on next.
