Even these claims are not fully substantiated by the evidence. The recent opinion poll actually concludes that most men believe that alcohol is the prime cause of impotency.
We suspect that this scaremongering has more to do with anti-smoking zealotry than actually addressing a condition that causes much distress to those affected.
It ill befits a responsible organisation like the BMA to give its name to mischievous and misleading information.
