Smoking and obesity linked to erectile dysfunction
A study that analyzed nearly 22,000 U.S men for a good 14 years has revealed that regular exercise, kicking the smoking habit and keeping tabs on the body weight has an impact in cutting down the risks of impotence.

Dr. Eric B. Rimm, co-author of the study, said "Even though erectile problems were thought at one time to be psychological, it has become clear that heart disease and ED share many of the same risk factors." Obesity also affects sexual health, he said.

Obesity must lead to sluggish circualtion to the peripheral tissues. Nobody has probably studied this phenomenon. Erectile dysfunction is a complex pathology. Obesity, heart disease and Erectile dysfunction are intelinked and need a multi-speciality study.
