^ Yup, it's astounding how many "doctors" and other people try to convince us that it is possible...the lack of knowledge on human anatomy is truly amazing at times.

I'm wondering if it would aid in bodybuilding?

Anyone who does this?
Frankly, why would half the people bother anyway; I'd hazzard a guess that a very high percentage of bodybuilders, particularly newcomers to the sport, haven't got anywhere near their possible max size through normal training practices alone...after that potential has been reached, is the time to hit the more off-the-wall stuff, IMO; in the meantime, train.
