That’s right – it’s been revealed that tucking into too many Big Macs can have disastrous consequences both above and below the belt…
It’s obviously well known that overindulging in fast food is a surefire way to pile on the pounds, however, new research has revealed some other intimate health issues.
A 2005 study, funded by the U.S. National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, concluded that eating fast food more than twice a week significantly increases the risk of developing diabetes and heart disease, reports The Sun.
However, the resulting health problems caused by obesity can in many cases also lead to erectile dysfunction.
The link between fast food and losing your libido is explained in a YouTube clip created by AllTime10s.
It warns that regularly consuming fast food can result in endothelial dysfunction – a condition which causes reduced blood flow through the body, including – you guessed it – to the genitals.
The video says:
Eating McDonald’s more than twice a week will increase your chances of developing type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity by 70 per cent.
The processed fat in McDonald’s can cause endothelial dysfunction.
This inhibits blood flow to the genitals so you won’t be lovin’ anything if you keep eating McDonald’s.
But it’s not just the guys at AllTime10s – a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition revealed that eating a Big Mac meal reduced blood flow by 22.7 per cent – the same effect as breathing in secondhand smoke for 30 minutes.
So if you’re thinking of getting some takeaway for a little ‘McDonald’s and chill,’ you should probably reconsider…
