Well, now you know why tiger and deer penis is doing such brisk trade in China: a new study has revealed that at least one in four Chinese men have erectile dysfunction. For people over the age of 40, that figure rises to at least 40%! Considering population demographics, that’s like 78 million people who are unable to get it on!
As if wholly outnumbering the women in this country wasn’t bad enough for Chinese guys, once they finally meet an available one, they’ve got a 25% or higher failure rate at sealing the deal (so to speak). According to Wang Xiaofeng of Peking University People’s Hospital, the study covered 11 cities in China.
In order to be declared as suffering from erectile dysfunction, men needed to be sometimes able or never able to get and keep an erection in the past three months.
Wang said that about 83 percent of the sufferers in China “never sought medical treatment for the disease.”
Poor public awareness and the underlying social stigma related to the disease are mainly to be blamed for that, he said…
But there’s hope yet!
For the majority of sufferers the cause was psychological, only 7.2 percent was caused by physical conditions. Some 30 percent suffered from both mental and physical causes, he said.
Many men with erectile dysfunction had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease, such as diabetes, hypertension, poor cholesterol levels or a habitual smoker. Most sufferers also didn’t partake in any vigorous physical exercise
Hear that Chinese guys suffering from ED? Eat healthier, quit smoking and maybe see a psychiatrist. It might not be the quick fix that tiger bone wine promises, but it will most likely actually work.
