How does erectile function affect your career?
Posted by Fox News on Thursday, August 29, 2018 12:26:58 The National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Institutes for Health (NIHK) has released a report outlining the prevalence of erectile disorders and the prevalence by race and ethnicity of those affected.
“The prevalence of ED in U.S. men is higher among whites, Hispanic, and African American men,” the report says.
“For example, about one in four white men and one in 10 Hispanic men have ED.”
The report’s authors also found that ED was more prevalent in Black and Hispanic men than in White men.
White women were also more likely to be affected by ED, while African American women were more likely than White women to be afflicted.
“We believe this is due to the higher prevalence of the underlying condition among Black women, who are more likely, among other things, to be incarcerated,” the authors say.
The report also found the prevalence for ED in men was higher in those with higher education levels and also in those who reported an increased amount of time spent in bed.
The report noted that there was no single cause for the higher rates of ED among Black men, but that it was important to note that ED can be the result of multiple factors.
The authors note that the CDC’s Office of Minority Health reported a 10% increase in ED cases among Black and Latino men between 2009 and 2016.
The researchers say that “while ED is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States, the diagnosis and treatment of ED is often based on a combination of factors, including family history, substance abuse, and sexual behavior problems.”
