Cell Phones raise risk of Erectile Dysfunction
30 million men in America have trouble getting or maintaining an erection. Absolutely mind-boggling.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a result of both mental and physiological factors and usually caused by a narrowing of arteries, but ED is rapidly increasing in younger men who's arteries are usually fine. Cell phones haven’t been around long enough to fully understand their impact on ED, but doctors are already linking cell phones to higher risk.
A study published in the Central European Journal of Urology found men with ED carried their cell phones in their pockets for almost three more hours per day than men without ED. In another study, scientists found that men with ED were 2.6 times more likely to keep their cell phones in their front pockets.
Considering other evidence of testicular damage from cell phone radiation, and the role of healthy testicular function in sexual health, cell phones are a factor in erectile dysfunction.
