MICHIGAN PHYSICIAN LINKS CIGARETTE SMOKING TO IMPOTENCE IN MEN

 MICHIGAN PHYSICIAN LINKS CIGARETTE SMOKING TO IMPOTENCE IN MEN
 DETROIT, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Michigan men are being warned that smoking cigarettes could be hazardous to their sex life.
 In his "Best of Health" radio and TV messages, Paul Farr, M.D., states that although it's common knowledge that cigarette smoking can lead to cancer, ulcers, liver and heart disease, it has also been found that smoking cigarettes can cause impotence in men.
 Dr. Farr, a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan participating physician and former president of the Kent County Medical Society, joined Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan in communicating health messages to advise Michigan residents about the dangers of smoking.
 In his "Best of Health" radio and TV spots, Dr. Farr emphasizes that smoking affects practically every part of the body. He also makes recommendations about ways in which people can stop smoking. Dr. Farr encourages people not to feel defeated if they do not succeed in their first attempt to quit smoking.
 Dr. Farr's health messages have captured the interest and attention of much of the Michigan news media during the past week.
 "I am pleased about the tremendous interest the media has focused on the issue of smoking and impotence," Dr. Farr said. "But I think it's important that people consider all the risks involved in smoking and continue trying to quit."
 Dr. Farr's messages, which are airing now on more than 200 radio and TV stations statewide, are being paid for by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan and the Michigan Association of Broadcasters.
