300 years ago Benjamin Franklin wrote that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We often tell patients “ To be hard, eat no lard”.
in a new study researchers asked more than 25,000 health professionals to detail their diet, along with their ability to have erections. The participants were followed for 10 years. Sadly, 36 percent of the men reported erectile dysfunction at the end of the study.
But, scientists discovered that the higher the intake of nutrients arising from fruits, the lower the risk of erectile dysfunction. Overall the more fruit the men ate, the lower the risk of erectile dysfunction.

To reduce your risk or erectile dysfunction, eat at least one serving a day of whole fruit. This can be as easy as adding blueberries to your morning oatmeal or smoothie. What else can you do? Men in the study that exercised regularly had an even lower risk of sexual difficulties.
The lead Scientist in the study, Dr. Eric Rimm of Harvard, emphasized that “erectile dysfunction is often an early barometer of poor vascular function and offers a critical opportunity to intervene and prevent cardiovascular disease, heart attack and even death”
