Do e-cigarettes damage potency?

It has long been known that e-cigarettes are a less harmful alternative to tobacco products. But over time, it has become apparent that e-cigarettes also have health side effects. A study by New York & Johns Hopkins Universities has now found that men who use e-cigarettes have a higher risk of developing erectile dysfunction.

In the study, the researchers evaluated the data from men between the ages of 20 and 65. They found that daily use of e-cigarettes increases the risk of erection problems by a factor of 2.4 compared to the risk in men who have never smoked. It is believed that nicotine significantly impairs blood flow to the penis.

The study also revealed that men who had never smoked tobacco before using e-cigarettes were more likely to be affected than men who had smoked tobacco before using e-cigarettes. In addition, the study took into account that no participant had cardiovascular disease. This factor plays a major role because it shows that the use of e-cigarettes is an independent risk factor in erectile dysfunction.

Study only of limited significance

But the study, led by Dr. Omar El Ahahawyl is of limited value. Because the investigations took place exclusively on the test subjects' own statements. In addition, no medication intake that could explain a potency disorder was taken into account. Since there are many other causes of erectile dysfunction, meaningful studies are difficult to evaluate. In addition to an unhealthy lifestyle or medication, high pressure to perform or mental problems are often the causes of erectile dysfunction. But the biggest problem with this is that there are no long-term studies. The e-cigarette market has only grown strongly here for a few years and scientists assume that the side effects, such as erectile dysfunction, could only become known in many years.

Further studies by the universities should now clarify whether there are only certain substances in the liquids that cause erectile dysfunction. Furthermore, the scientists also want to find out whether an erectile dysfunction that has already occurred is reversible when the vapor consumption is stopped. A subsequent study with women aims to find out whether they also have an increased risk of suffering from sexual dysfunction through consumption.
