Smoking affects sexual health

<![CDATA[

A U.S. study suggests that men who successfully stopped smoking improved on lab measurements of sexual health more than those who relapsed after a quit-smoking program, showing that smoking may be affecting the sexual health of men who consider themselves perfectly all right in bed, researchers said.

“With younger men, the risks of smoking in that population appear more far off. They think, ‘I don’t really need to worry about this until much farther down the road,” said study author Christopher Harte, from the VA Boston Healthcare System, who published findings in the British Journal of Urology International.

“Regardless of if this really does apply to all men who smoke or not (the goal was) just getting the word out that men could be aware of this finding, so it could influence their decisions to start the quitting process,” he told Reuters Health, though he did say the study was still not definitive.
