Vehicle Exhaust Impairs Erectile Function in Rats
Upcoming Events in Sexual Medicine
A recent rat study suggests a link between vehicle exhaust and erectile dysfunction (ED).
For three months, researchers exposed four groups of male rats to varying degrees of gasoline vehicle exhaust, ranging from no exposure at all to six hours a day, five days a week.
At the end of the three-month exposure period, the research team assessed erectile and lung function for each rat. They also analyzed lung and penile tissue structure.
Rats who had been exposed to vehicle exhaust for four or six hours daily had poorer lung and erectile function and higher rates of pulmonary fibrosis compared to those who had less exposure.
