*All individuals are unique. Your results can and will vary.

There were 30 individuals – 20 individuals who were suffering from Erectile Dysfunction and 10 individuals with no sign of Erectile Dysfunction.

The study resulted in the results showing that the group of men, who were affected with Erectile Dysfunction, have been using their mobile phones for a much longer period of time compared with the group of men who had no sign of Erectile Dysfunction.

The founders of this study consider this as a small sample and in order for this theory to be fully proven there is a need for a bigger sample – a bigger number of people to take part in this study.

However, this study is frightening enough for those who have read it to make them consider a significant distance apart from their mobile phones.
