Two recent studies on impotence offer a clearer picture of its connection to heart disease. The bad news is that impotence increases the risk of heart disease. The good news is that the same lifestyle changes that help protect against heart disease also help combat impotence and improve sexual function…A second recent study from the Mayo Clinic offers more hopeful results. Since impotence and heart disease seem to share common origins, the researchers reasoned that lifestyle modifications that lowered the risk of heart disease would help overcome impotence.
