Occasional failure is more likely at the beginning of a relationship, particularly if a man is anxious. The issue often resolves as confidence grows, but some men get stuck in a loop where their anxiety about staying hard becomes something of a self-fulfilling prophecy.
In our quest for perfection we buy fattening high fructose, testicle shrinking tofu, mouldy nuts and vitamin blocking grains. We are still rendered bloated with candida, high blood sugar, calorie overdosed and in a processed food daze. Even the foods that are actually healthy often taste so bad they could kill you in a fit of choking.
In one of the most shameless examples of propaganda seen in our generation, the mainstream media went into overdrive with the headlines screaming out that high-protein diets were 'as bad as smoking'. Nothing like sensationalism, eh?
Surely you must know the adverse effects of bad diet and no exercise. Why should the taxpayer pay for what is, ultimately, the exercise of your freedom of choice? This is the question that Jeremy Paxman asked the former NHS chief Sir David Nicholson, when Nicholson went to Newsnight to describe his transition from being the head of the NHS to becoming yet another NHS patient with diabetes.
The concept of mHealth is nothing new. Smartphones, apps and wearable devices are already successfully helping people to quit smoking, lose weight, manage their diabetes and track activity, such as running and walking.
Think of disease in Africa and you maybe think of malaria. But this is not the whole picture. In Africa and across developing countries, people are living longer and their lifestyles are changing. With this shift, a different threat is emerging...
I quite often eat chocolate for breakfast. Real chocolate is extremely healthy stuff. It contains powerful antioxidants called polyphenols - nearly twice the number contained in red wine and three times the number in green tea. It lowers insulin resistance, protects your nervous system and reduces your risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease.
Last week, I explored claims that sugar is considered to be the new tobacco in terms of addiction and effect on our health. This week I'll look at whether we can live without sugar and how we can cut down.
For example, Samsung has already produced, and Apple is about to produce, smart watches that can be connected to your phone. And smart glasses like in Sherlock are also on the way. I am not entirely certain why this technology is necessary, but I am sure we are moving closer and closer towards the time when smart phones will have proven themselves obsolete.
Last night, as I was following the hashtag #Tomorrowsnewspaperstoday on twitter around 10:30pm, I spotted two very interesting front pages that combined make a rather amusing story. ... The Daily Mail and Daily Express, both mentioned sugar and the effects that it can have on your body. I'm not sure which I should believe, if frankly, I should believe either (especially when leading TV and online sources haven't mentioned either story and their related research).
When sugar calories are absorbed into our bloodstream, they provide us with energy. If we do not use the energy, we get fat and according to studies, are put in potential danger of Diabetes II and heart disease.
Forgive me for slightly boiling down the reasons for human existence into one pithy sentence but the three base instincts that truly fuel us are to get richer, have more sex and live longer. Or maybe that's just me.
The truth is we don't have the freedom to choose an added-sugar-free diet, the stuff is unavoidable. Forget fizzy drinks - yoghurts, salad dressings, dips, cereals, bread, sushi, sauces, baked beans and crisps all have unnecessary amounts of added-sugar to them.
A new report from UK think tank the Overseas Development Institute shows that globally, one in three adults was overweight or obese in 2008, an increase of 23% since 1980. In the developing world, the number of overweight or obese adults more than tripled from 250million to 904million.
Currently standing at 382million, the number of people affected by diabetes is expected to rocket to 592million by 2035 - that's a 55% increase in just over 20 years.
Just like us, all dogs slow down with age, being less keen to exercise, putting on weight, most likely a combination of both. Moods vary greatly from being needier, to much less friendly, sometimes preferring to be just left alone.
