I've been trying to decide whether or not this article would go here. If it doesn't please move it to its proper category.


A large study of men age 55 and older adds to evidence that impotence can be a warning sign for heart disease.

Men with erectile dysfunction were more likely than other men to experience chest pain, a heart attack or a stroke during the next seven years, the study found.

The results suggest that men who see their doctors for impotence drugs also should consider getting screened for heart disease, said study co-author Dr. Ian Thompson of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

If for no other reason that for just being seen, this article just might make more men aware or atleast make them think about changing their lifestyle just in case this might apply to them. I'm not asking if there are people who suffer from this condition, I just posted it to let other folks know.
