New on the Member Forum
Brazilian and American researchers have investigated how modifying risk factors may help alleviate erectile dysfunction (ED). They concluded that, "while intriguing, most of the literature and evidence is not completely scientifically compelling.”
The researchers conducted a literature review and focused on factors such as physical activity, weight loss, smoking, diet, and diabetes control, among others. In their report, they discuss challenges in the research, such as the fact that weight loss and physical activity are “difficult to separate.”
The study was first published online in the Journal of Sexual Medicine on September 12, 2012. To learn more. please click here.
