Men who spend time each week gardening – digging, weeding or mowing the lawn – can cut their risk of impotence by half, according to a recent study by Medical University of Vienna
The same study, highlighted by the UK’s Telegraph, showed that dancing, cycling and other kinds of moderate exercise can help in the same way. Low, regular physical activity can help maintain erectile function, the study found.
That means expending as few as a thousand calories a week can help.
That could be gardening for 30 to 45 minutes, dancing for half an hour, cycling four miles in 15 minutes or jogging 1.5 miles in the same time, according to the study. The research showed that amount of activity reduced impotence by around 38 percent.
