Question about a mistaken idea about the Peyronie’s plaque

Dr Herazy,

As I'm sure you're aware, the Copenhagen City Heart Study suggested that patients who drank wine had half the risk of coronary heart disease or stroke, primarily due to the reduction of plaque.

Has any of your research indicated that drinking alcohol in moderation, 1-2 drinks a day, can have a positive effect on removing the plaque that causes PD?

Greetings Ken,

Your question is based on a misunderstanding about the nature of the Peyronie's plaque which is not remotely related or associated with a blood vessel plaque formation; they are two different animals.    

I invite you to read the post I wrote some time ago, Peyronie's plaque or scar that will explain this subject better.  Part of the post will tell you that this plaque is not a vascular problem of blood vessels, but is a problem of the tunica albuginea of the penis.  Besides that its cellular structure is vastly different.  TRH
