We’ve known that smoking is bad for your health for a long time now. A cigarette contains thousands of harmful substances and chemicals, smokers are at high risk of suffering all kinds of diseases, from heart and lung failures to cancer or COPD.
Nevertheless, almost 14 percent of all Americans still smoke. However, there is a new study that will make all smoker males think twice about it.
Smoking can shrink your penis, according to Ladbible.
Like smoking was not dangerous enough already, this study will probably make most men finally quit smoking.
According to urologist Marc Laniado, men who smoke have smaller penises, which is due to impaired blood pressure.
Can also cause erection problems
But not only will your penis shrink, but it can also be difficult to get a lasting erection.
“We see many men with erection problems. To have a firm erection, you need sufficient blood flow. Smokers have a higher incidence of atherosclerosis in all blood vessels, including those in the penis, which can reduce blood flow. But also sometimes people say that their penis is getting shorter as they get older, as smoking stops the blood flowing through the penis, which stops the spontaneous and nightly erections that are needed to stretch the penis and keep it at a good length.” said Marc Laniado to Ladbible.
Measured 200 penis
In one study, the researchers measured the penis of 200 different participants, and the results showed that those who smoked on average were smaller than those who didn’t smoke.
But it’s not just men’s private parts that are at risk if you smoke.
“Women’s arousal is – if you think about it – also affected by blood flow to the area,” added Laniado.
In other words, it’s time to quit – regardless of your gender!
