Ah, and I have just read the Webster´s dictionary on line, there´s more of good for than good to in there.
Synonyms within Context: GOOD FOR
Impotence Null and void, nugatory, inoperative, good for nothing; ineffectual; (failing); inadequate; inefficacious; (useless).
Once more beware the sense (context helps a lot). Sentences like "Nuts are good for you..." remind us to the above "Salaubrity" definition, i.e. you can replace it for "benign, tonic, nutritious" and so on. Or this cheap car is not good for long trips will lead us to the "Inutility" ( not wort having....for long trips) or the inadequate/useless...
Thus FOR is more used most of times (far more than TO, because of the meanings).
