Erectile dysfunction, commonly known as impotence, brings more than 300 patients per month by the Reference Center for Human Health in the capital city. Research conducted on the unit indicates that 90% of this total are sedentary and do not practice physical activity or on weekends. The survey also shows that smokers represent 40% of patients complaining of impotence.

According to urologist Joaquim Claro, head doctor of the hospital, smoking clogs the vessels, and consequently the circulation of blood in the penis is much smaller. Smokers over 55 years can not go have some degree of impotence. The role of tobacco in the arteries is similar to that of organic factors like diabetes, says the expert.

About 25 million Brazilians over 18 years has suffered with the problem at least once in their lifetime. Between the age of 40 years, more than 40% can not have sex because of lack of erection. It is important to acknowledge that man when failures are possible and when it is time to seek medical help, says the urologist urology service responsible for Claudius Murta.

Sexual dysfunction can be treated with psychotherapy, drugs or the implantation of penile prosthesis, but only a specialist can diagnose the disease and indicate the best method of treatment.
