Alcohol in Moderation Found To Help Erectile Dysfunction?

January 28, 2009

Australia (ChattahBox) – According to a new study done at the University of West Australia, a glass or two of booze may be just what a man needs to keep it up.

While the effects of excessive drinking on male performance has been well documented, new research suggests that moderate drinking may actually help reduce the risks of erectile dysfunction.

The study was done via anonymous survey, where 1,770 men were asked to participate. The results showed that those who drank an average amount of alcohol had a 30% less probability of having erectile problems.

While it isn’t clear why it is that small amount of alcohol that can promote penile health, it is likely related to the same antioxidant properties that help fight against heart disease. But that doesn’t mean you should start pulling down those shot glasses more often.

“It would be socially irresponsible to say that even a binge drinker can get some benefits,” Kew-Kim Chew, who led the study, told reporters.

    The best solution for impotence is BUTEA SUPERBA a clinically tested herb now grown under license. Available in pill form at the url next to my name above. Butea has been successful for over 80% of men who have tried it. The results range from improved sexual function to achieving second and third erections after intercourse.

    Yes, there’s a few other web-sites telling of this wonder !
    Do you realize that you’re just provoking Satans Minion to do further damage ??

    Alcohol is truly the scourge of society ! With no warning, it can hit moderate drinkers so hard, that their lives could/can be easily destroyed !!
    Most common severe, permanent health afflictions, at this time, are Grand-Mal Seizures, Blindness, Deafness, rotted Livers and good old fashioned Heart Attacks. And all have no cure’s what-so-ever !!
    Our youth need no further encouragement to drink, therefore, spreading this bunkum is completely asinine.
    When all us old farts are in nursing homes, it is our Youth who’ll be expected to take over the many profession we hold right now ! Do you think that they’ll all be of sufficient good health to do so ?
    I’d stop this nonsense as soon as possible, if it were I !!

    Sheila, you obviously have no knowledge of how addiction works, or you would not make such sweeping, ignorant comments.

    Obliterating alcohol from the face of the planet will do nothing to stave off the effects of addiction, which are wide reaching, devastating, and mutating. Addicts rarely stay with one drug of choice, alcohol or otherwise, and will go from one thing to another, or even other substances like mouthwash, or even gasoline, in order to achieve a similar effect.

    Small amounts of alcohol are perfectly fine, and it is up to the alcoholic to get help when it isn’t, not the job of society to babysit them, taking away the cause. Would you also remove all cars from the roads to eliminate car accidents?

    It’s about awareness, knowledge, prevention, and suitable help for those who fall into the disease, not fighting off ‘Satan’s Minion’.
