ED Linked To Lead

Share this content:

Egyptian researchers have found a link between chronic lead exposure and erectile dysfunction (ED).


They found elevated blood lead levels in 16 of 34 men with ED scheduled for penile implant insertion but not in any of 15 controls without ED, according to a report in the Journal of Sexual Medicine (2007;4:1428-1436).


In the ED group, blood lead levels correlated positively with cavernous tissue lead level.
