In a press release from the American Heart Association, it is reported that erectile dysfunction should be considered a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

German researchers have concluded that "erectile dysfinction is a strong predictor of death from all causes and of heart attack, stroke and heart failure in men with cardiovascular disease. Researchers found that men with cardiovascular disease and erectile dysfunction - conpared with those without erectile dysfunction - were twice as likely to suffer death from all causes and 16 times more likely to suffer the composite of cardiovascular death, heart attack, stroke and heart failure.
