A crappy diet can do more than wreck your waistline—it can sink your erection, too.
Think about it: some of the smallest blood vessels and nerves in your body can be found in your penis, says Jamin brahmbhatt, M.D., a urologist at orlando Health. so if you’re slamming down junk like pizza and fries every day, your blood vessels down under may get clogged with fat and cholesterol.
This restricts blood flow to your penis, preventing you from getting hard when you’re ready for action and even putting your heart health at risk down the road. many of these foods can increase your chances of developing high blood pressure, too.
