According to Massachusette Male Aging Study, about 52% men aged from 40 to 70
years suffer from erectile dysfunction out of which 17% is mild, 25% moderate and 10%

“Erectile dysfunction is a rising malady in this modern era of stress. It is affecting
younger and younger population and is standing out like a major health hazard. It is
also an indicator of serious vascular disease, which might be the harbinger of
cardiovascular disease. We need to take more cognizance of this both for pleasurable
sexual function as well as detection of serious health maladies,” said Dr. Amit Ghose,
