Can Smokers Get it Up?

Posted Aug 26 2008 11:20am
D uring an annual physical exam, a doctor once asked if I smoked. When I said no, he said, "Good. Smoking is the single worst health habit anyone can have."



Maybe it was an exaggeration, but not much of one.



Today, I read a report on smoking and erectile dysfunction, or ED, as they call in the TV ads about Viagra and similar pills.



Whenever I see those ads I notice that the actors are usually middle-age and fit looking people. Then I wonder why so many people these days need pills to do what should come naturally.



Does smoking play a role? even though fewer people are smoking now. I don't know the answer.



What I do know is that smoking is bad for your circulation, and poor circulation to certain appendages can contribute to ED.



So here's my anti-tobacco thought for the day:



If you smoke and heart disease, stroke and certain cancers haven't been reason enough for you to quit, consider this: The habit also increases the risk of erectile dysfunction.
