It may be a common sense notion, but now research bolsters the link between unhealthy lifestyle choices and sexual dysfunction in men.
In a new study, Danish scientists found that weight problems, physical inactivity, high alcohol consumption, tobacco smoking, and hard drugs were associated with sexual dysfunctions in men.
The study, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine also discovered that an unhealthy lifestyle is more common in persons who are sexually inactive.
Researchers led by Associate Professor Morten Frisch, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc., used nationally representative survey data from 5,552 Danish men and women aged 16 – 97 years in 2005 to study the association of lifestyle factors with sexual inactivity and sexual dysfunction.
