A new study identified genetic abnormality that is responsible for impotence.

It turned out that there is a variation in DNA that could cause the inability to achieve or maintain an erection. Scientists from the medical insurance company Kaiser Permanente in the USA studied the genes have slightly more than 37,000 Americans who volunteered to share them for the needs of science. These men told about their sexual health and problems with erection.

Gene SIM1 helps in regulation of body weight and erection. Detection of this anomaly is quite significant because it confirms a longstanding hypothesis about the genetic cause of impotence.
