A UROLOGIST from Taiwan claimed that men who abstained from sex for three years or more could develop impotence, reported Sin Chew Daily.
Quoting the former president of the Taiwanese Association of Andrology, Dr Jiann Bang-Ping, the report said such men might develop Widower’s Syndrome if they did not engage in sexual activity for three to five years.
Widower’s Syndrome usually occurs after a man has lost his spouse.
Dr Jiann said half of the estimated 1.7 billion men with impotence were Asians, adding that, “By 2025, two of every three patients will be Asians.”
He said that ageing, unhealthy habits such as smoking, and chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart problems could also caused impotence.

The Lee family from Kuantan claimed that the officer was arrogant and lackadaisical in his work. Lee Guang Ming, 62, was hit by a car and died in the accident in Tanjung Lumpur last Wednesday.
The following day, his eldest son, 38, went to see the police officer to ask him on progress in the investigations.
“The officer said police could not proceed with the case because there were no witnesses and no one had come forward to lodge report,” the son said.
