“Survival of the toughest” Erectile dysfunction is defined as recurrent or persistent inability to achieve and / or maintain an erection for the purpose of satisfactory sexual performance. It affects up to 30 million men in the United States, it is about 100 million worldwide.
Wait! The US population makes up less than 8% of the world’s population, how is it that 30% of all impotent men live in them? We are number one! Who cares?
We have red, white and blue pills, such as Viagra. The problem is that the pills just cover up symptoms of vascular disease and do nothing with the cause of the dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction and our biggest killer, coronary heart disease, there are only two manifestations of the same disease, ie inflamed, clogged and damaged arteries, it does not matter which authority it is.
Atherosclerosis is considered a systemic disorder that occurs evenly It affects all the major blood vessels in the body. Hardening of the arteries can lead to soften the penis, because hardened arteries cannot normal to release, spread and let the blood flow. So erectile dysfunction can in terms of systemic disorder featuring only the faint tip of the iceberg. For two-thirds of men who show up for the emergency room with the first crushing chest pain, their penis has been trying to warn them for several years, that there is something wrong with their blood circulation.
Why does the disease first affect the penis?
Because the arteries in the penis are half the diameter against the coronary arteries in the heart, ie those specifically to those who make wives widowed. So the same amount of plaque in the heart, that you wouldn’t even feel could half clog the arteries in the penis and thus cause its insufficient blood circulation.
You may not feel chest pain up to this point, therefore, erectile dysfunction is nicknamed “angina penis.” Based on measuring blood flow to the penis you can predict the results of a cardiac exercise test with an accuracy of 80%. Male sexual function is such a penis stress test. It represents the eye to the man’s heart.
Forty percent of men over the age of forty suffer from erectile dysfunction, so-called 40 over 40. Men who have erection problems between the ages of 40 and 49 have a 50x higher risk of heart attack, for example, sudden cardiac arrest.
You’ve heard that various things increase the risk of heart disease by 20%, 30%. This is almost 5,000% The latest opinion therefore asks: “Is there a greater risk?” This is because it is still not a risk factor for atherosclerosis, she is atherosclerosis. Man with erectile dysfunction (although he has no heart symptoms) should be considered a cardiac unless proven otherwise.
Erectile dysfunction can be considered equivalent to being a cardiac patient. It is a sign of ischemic heart disease, which you probably already have at the time. Therefore, treating erectile dysfunction is not just about that restore the penis’s ability to have a good erection, it also offers an opportunity to reduce cardiovascular risk.
The reason why young people should also be interested in their cholesterol levels, is that high cholesterol predicts the development of erectile dysfunction later in life. At the same time, it predicts heart attacks, strokes and shortened life expectancy. Do you still want to eat unhealthily because you can swallow pills? Not all Viagra in the world might have you enough to restore your sex life after you have a stroke.
For us, a simple equation follows: the abbreviation ED means erectile dysfunction and at the same time “early death”.
