As the world “impatiently” awaits a coronavirus vaccine, so-called “experts” in Italy and the US are warning of yet another “potential” long-term consequence of COVID-19 infection: erectile dysfunction:
During a recent interview with the US broadcaster NBC, American physician Dena Grayson said there was growing concern that COVID-19 could cause long-term difficulty getting an erection.
“We know that it causes issues in the vasculature,” Grayson said. “So this is something that is of real concern — not just that this virus can kill, but can actually cause long-term, lifelong potential complications.”
A study out of Italy in July found that erectile dysfunction was both a risk factor for COVID-19 pneumonia and also a “likely consequence” of the disease for survivors, making it a “worrying phenomenon” among elderly patients in particular.
“Erectile dysfunction is a perfect biomarker of general physical and psychological health,” said the study’s lead author, Emmanuele Jannini, professor of endocrinology and medical sexology at the Tor Vergata University of Rome. As COVID-19 affects both mental and physical well-being, he said, erectile dysfunction is not necessarily a surprising consequence of the disease.
People infected with coronavirus who have previously suffered erectile dysfunction may also be more prone to developing COVID-19 pneumonia, according to Jannini.
That’s because pneumonia entails the same comorbidities that are often associated with erectile dysfunction, he said, including respiratory difficulties, inflammation, hormonal issues, stress, anxiety, depression and endothelial dysfunction — or when the lining of the small arteries constricts.
“Erectile dysfunction is a bona fide marker of risk for pneumonia from coronavirus. But it is not necessarily a risk factor for getting the infection, that remains to be seen,” Jannini said.
Damage to blood vessels a cause for concern
Erectile dysfunction occurs when blood flow to the penis is limited — the causes of which can be complex and varied, both physiological and psychological. Many different factors affecting the cardiovascular system, nervous system and endocrine system can cause or contribute to issues with getting an erection.
One risk factor that stands out for coronavirus patients is the damage done to the vascular and respiratory systems.
The coronavirus has been found to attack the inner walls of blood vessels — called the endothelium — throughout the body, including those in the penis, which can cause vascular blockages.
Although large blood clots can cause heart attacks and strokes, the heart damage caused by COVID-19 is believed to stem mostly from very small clots that block tiny blood vessels in the heart muscle. There are particularly small blood vessels in the penis which can quickly become blocked when the arterial blood flow is restricted.
While this may explain some presentations of erectile dysfunction among coronavirus patients, experts stress that more research needs to be done to determine its link to COVID-19, and this is likely to differ among individuals.
They obviously want otherwise healthy young men to see this headline and rush out to get the vaccine — preying on their fears of sexual humiliation.
But the vast majority of symptomatic COVID infections occur in the elderly — with severe underlying co-morbitidies — so it should surprise exactly no one that elderly men experience erectile dysfunction — with or without COVID.
Chronic inflammation, regardless of the cause, can result in erectile dysfunction — and pneumonia — which is very common in the elderly, causes chronic inflammation of the lungs.
And since this fake pandemic started, the elderly are magically no longer dying of common pneumonia — because they are too busy dying of COVID apparently.
As doctor’s well know, pneumonia is known as the “old person’s friend” — it’s the disease that comes and takes the life of a long-suffering old person — and does it relatively painlessly.
But no one ever proposed that we shut down the world economy because thousands of old people were dying of pneumonia every day —
Regardless, as men age, their testosterone levels naturally decrease, as does their sex drive — but the “experts” tell us that this is a cause for alarm — because if you aren’t having sex — even if you are in a nursing home on a respirator — there’s obviously something wrong with you.
That’s been the message of Jewish media darling, “Dr.” Ruth Westheimer for the last 30 years — if you aren’t having sex from the cradle to the grave, there is something terribly wrong with you — and your marriage.
And this message has probably done as much to destroy otherwise good marriages — as it was meant to — as any other cause.
The sale of Viagra and its generic equivalent has become a billion dollar industry — where even porn-numbed teenagers are taking it as a “party drug”.
But there’s a silver lining to all this madness — according to so-called “experts” in Israel, some erectile dysfunction drugs can be used to lessen the symptoms of COVID — so instead of the vaccine, just pop some viagra and give granny a call.
