Watermelon the new Viagra?

I heard this while listening to the radio this morning. According to whoever was telling the story you would need something like five cups of watermelon. Since I have an inquiring mind, I wanted to know so I googled it.  Instead of an expensive little blue pill you can now eat a big green melon to handle all of your erectile needs.

From the DenverPost.com

A slice of cool, fresh watermelon is a juicy way to top off a Fourth of July cookout and one that researchers say has effects similar to Viagra — but don’t necessarily expect it to keep the fireworks all night long.

Watermelons contain an ingredient called citrulline that can trigger production of a compound that helps relax the body’s blood vessels, similar to what happens when a man takes Viagra, said scientists in Texas.

Todd Wehner, who studies watermelon breeding at North Carolina State University, said anyone taking Viagra shouldn’t expect the same result from watermelon.

I wonder why nobody ever noticed this before. I’ve been to lot’s of picnics and pool parties where people were eating watermelon and I don’t ever recall seeing any of the men sporting wood.
