Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

Total time spent talking on the cell phone per week was not significantly higher in Group A than in Group B. Men with erectile dysfunction were found to carry their "switched on" cell phones for a significantly longer time than those without erectile dysfunction.
A potential correlation with cell phone usage and a negative impact on erectile dysfunction was found. Further large-scale studies are recommended.
