Sir: John Carlisle of the Tobacco Manufacturers Association argues the link between smoking and impotence is old news (letter, 7 June). The Mori polling for ASH was done to show that despite the well- established link, smokers have very low awareness of the risk. The usual stance of the tobacco industry is that adults know the risks and exercise free choice to smoke. But how many smokers know there are twenty ways to die from smoking and fifty ways to become ill - of which male sexual impotence is just one?
