The Dangers of Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction is something to be taken very, very seriously. And,
no, not just because it takes the life out of your sex life. Erectile
Dysfunction is almost always a warning shot over your bow, a warning of impending
heart disease. In other words, if you do not take care of your erectile
dysfunction now, you almost for sure have a life of angina, angioplasties and MIs just around
What is tragic is that so many doctors treat erectile dysfunction as if it is
purely psychological. How many guys have walked out of a physician's
office with the idea planted in his mind that it must "all be in his head".
Well, if you have few to no morning erections and difficulty even getting or
staying erect, you do not need some Ph. D. to imply that it is all in your mind:
you know different. And the reason is simple: the veins and arteries
in the penis are smaller than those in the heart area and thus tend to
have trouble first. And problems downstairs are "non-ignorable"
for us guys, because it effects our sex life. We will limp along with half
clogged arteries that are blocking circulation to our brains and legs, but if
the ol' penis is affected we take notice immediately!

But in some ways we should be thankful. For many of you erectile dysfunction is going
to give you a second chance on life so that hopefully a heart attack will not
suddenly kill you in five to ten years. By the way, I am not exagerrating to
make a point: one study found that erectile dysfunction preceded cardiovascular events by five years
on average. 
Let me put that in plain terms: you guys out there with erectile
dysfunction have five years, on average, to straighten yourself out physically or there is a
freight train coming your way. And remember that five years was the
middle point - it could be much less. Are you going to gamble with your
Furthermore, one study found that "that a single question on erectile
rigidity proved to be a predictor for the combined outcome of acute MI, stroke
and sudden death".  In other words, men were given a questionaire about
erectile function and if they answered a problem on just ONE of those problems,
it strongly predicted some of the nastiest things that can happen to a human
including heart attack, dying instantly and a clot damaging (usually) the brain.
So don't think that just because your erectile dysfunction is "mild" that you can
avoid the consequences.
Another study "showed [that] men with a history of ED had a 40% greater risk
of subsequently developing CVD over the seven-year course of the study than
those with normal erectile function."  Yet another study found a 26% and
43% increase in all-cause and cardiovascular mortality rates, respectively. 
And this was after adjusting for "age, body mass index, alcohol consumption,
physical activity, cigarette smoking, self-assessed health, and self-reported
heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes." In other words, erectile
dysfunction was found to be a potential death warrant not just because the
underlying population was "diseased" or "sickly."
In fairness to the doctors who still believe erectile dysfuntion is still "all in
one's head", these discoveries are relatively new. But in the last few
years, the results are unequivocal: there is a reason that you are not
getting your morning erections and that reason is important to listen to.

the clock tick down until your time is up? Of course not. Below I
