Odds are you've seen images or video of Jeffry Life, who claims testosterone therapy - along with diet, exercise and other supplements and treatments - is a fountain of youth of sorts. At 72, he uses his lean build to show how he believes the treatment benefits men.

WFAA's "Movember" campaign continues with testosterone therapy. The advertising touts promises of increased muscle tone, energy and sex drive are hard to miss.

William More, from advanced skin fitness, defines testosterone therapy. Dr. Steven Reeder also joined News 8 Daybreak to discuss the benefits of the therapy and Dr. Michelle Ho can shares some of the negative aspects of testosterone therapy.
