Tobacco smoking leads to low sperm count, weak erection

Dr Joseph Natsah of General Hospital Kachia in Kaduna State, has advised youths against tobacco smoking, saying it leads to impotence.
Natsah said in an interview on Tuesday in Kaduna that tobacco smoking results in low sperm count, weak erection and impotence.
He warned girls involved in smoking to desist from the habit as it would also prevent them from either conceiving or having still birth.
Natsah said tobacco smoke generally has adverse effect on every organ of the body, including the immune system.
The medical practitioner listed some of the conditions generated by smoking to include coronary and heart disease,  as well as breathlessness and influenza,
Also, a laboratory technician, Miss Mercy Onu said smoking was contributing to higher percentage of deformed sperms and impotency.
She also said it contributed to “painful ulcers along the digestive tract and build up fatty deposit on the artery walls”, thereby leading to low blood flow and heart attack.
A police sergeant, Dalhatu Konkiyel, who said he was a “retired chronic smoker”, said that he experienced various health challenges while smoking.
Some of the challenges, he said, were poor vision, high blood pressure, common cold , tooth decay, gum disease, sleeping and blood circulation problems.
He advised the youths not to indulge in the habit, to avoid early death and psychological trauma.
Konkiyel called on the Federal Government to ban the manufacture, distribution, sale of tobacco products in the country.
