Erectile dysfunction an early warning sign for heart disease

I promise this is the last thread on this subject, but this guy is so interesting- and I really did not know this stuff. He also views high blood pressure as "not a disease" but a "measurement".

"The ability to achieve and maintain an erection is fundamentally a vascular event. The firmness is produced by opening the inflow of blood into the penis and shutting down or reducing the blood that is leaving that organ. Of course the inflow of blood depends on the condition of the arterial supply to the penis and so erectile dysfunction becomes an early warning signal for arterial disease. "

"High blood pressure is not a disease. It is a measurement. The elevation of the blood pressure tells use that the artery is abnormal in structure and function. Erectile dysfunction is like an early warning system. It tells us that the arterial system has enough disease that it does not work properly. If you have that problem, you may want to see a medical specialist rather than a urologist for a vascular evaluation. You want to see someone who is very well-versed in the medical management of vascular disease."

for some reason they fail to mention this in the zillions of ads for these medications on TV.
