Hot Kabsa killing erections in Saudi as impotence rises
While many people in the region of Saudi believe that eating fatty and cholesterol rich foods might improve men’s sexual ability, Dr Ahmed Al Saqa begs to differ. Dr. Saqa is a consultant at Al Nour Hospital in the Saudi town of Makkah.
“Many people believe that eating much Kabsa and other food rich in cholesterol and fat will allow them to have a better sexual life. This is totally wrong... It's completely the opposite,” he told the London-based Saudi Arabic language daily Al Hayat.
“After eating such kind of foods, more blood in the body will flow into the stomach and this will cause laziness and fatigue, which in turn will block blood from reaching the genitals. As a result, this will affect man’s erection ability just after having Kabsa or other fatty food and this could be worse in the long term.”
Saudi men have come under fire recently for their unhealthy habits. The region boasts one of the highest rates of impotence due to bad eating habits and the numbers are on the rise.
Diabetes is prevalent among Saudis with 30 percent of its people falling victim to the disease. High blood pressure, heart problems, prostate disease and obesity are also settling in to the community.
“All these problems are mainly a result of the bad eating habits in the Kingdom, excessive smoking and lack of exercise”, claims Dr. Saqa.
