Over 33pc men `too fat to see their own penis`
London, September 17 : One in three men are too fat to see their own penis beneath their bulbous bellies, a new study has revealed.
A shocking 33 percent of 35 to 60-year-olds are so overweight that their manhood is hidden from sight when they stand upright and look downwards.
According to the survey of 1,000 men commissioned by WeLoveOurHealth. co. uk, a staggering 44 percent of those aged between 51 and 60 fail the â€śspot the penisâ€ť test.
Obese men who are unable to see their penises are said to be five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes and three times more likely to develop colon cancer.
â€śThis new research is really worrying and men must be encouraged to wake up to the potential life-threatening risks of being overweight and to make this vital check,â€ť the Sun quoted A and E specialist Dr Johan du Plessis, who also works as WeLoveOurHealth. co. ukâ€™s online doctor, as saying.
â€śAn obese man who cannot see his penis is five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, three times more likely to develop cancer of the colon and more than two and a half times more likely to develop high blood pressure - a major risk factor for stroke and heart disease,â€ť Dr du Plessis added.
