More Exercise Equals More Sex

Yet again a study has shown a clear correlation between higher levels of exercise in elderly men and lower levels of erectile dysfunction. The study done in Australia shows that getting exercise for men over the age of 40 is not only good for the heart but also for all aspects of male sexual health.
In all around 6,000 men were questioned in a telephone survey and were asked almost 100 questions regarding all aspects of their life. Professor McLachlan said that while surveys involving male sexual health often had a certain degree of unreliability it was clear that those men who kept fit, maintained a healthy weight and were careful about what they ate had significantly lower rates of erectile dysfunction.
Professor McLachlan also pointed out the link between erectile dysfunction and higher rates of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and hypertension which he said should be seen as the "canary in the coal mine" warning that something needed to be done about your health. The study which was published by BMC Public Health also documented lower levels of testosterone in those men who did not get exercise.
Professor McLachlan who works at the Monash Institute of Medical Research and is also a director of Andrology Australia said that men should get half an hour of vigorous exercise every day. At Ukmedix News we have always pointed out that one of the best ways to get this exercise is by having sex! Having sex is also good for mental health and reducing stress. Another interesting bit of information from the study was that high rates of erectile dysfunction were observed in those men who were underweight.
The last word of advice from Professor McLachlan was that prevention was better than cure and that healthy living should start when you were younger rather than waiting until the problems were already upon you. He said that it would be much more difficult to start exercising and eating healthily in your forties.
