One Orgasm Per Day Can Reduce Your Risk Of Getting Cancer
According to scientists, at least one ejaculation daily throughout a man’s life reduces the risk of cancer.
The researchers, from Harvard Medical School, revealed they could not explain why orgasms could lower the risk of prostate cancer, adding that further research is necessary.
The prostate is a small satsuma-sized gland located between a man’s joystick and his bladder.
The main function of the prostate is to produce a thick white fluid that is mixed with the sperm produced by the testicles, to create semen.
According to researchers, men in the 40 to 49 age bracket who ejaculate 21 or more times a month reduced their risk of prostate cancer by 22 percent compared to men who ejaculated four to seven times a month.
The researchers called the results ‘particularly encouraging’ adding that they were unclear as to why ejaculation can lower the chances of prostate cancer.
The study followed almost 32,000 healthy men for 18 years – 3,839 of whom later were diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Men were asked about their average monthly frequency of ejaculation between the ages of 20 to 29, 40 to 49, and in 1991, the year prior to the questionnaire.
They discovered that the more frequently a man ejaculated throughout his life, the lower his risk of prostate cancer at all three of these points in time.
This was the case even when their result was adjusted to consider factors such as diet, lifestyle and a history of prostate cancer screening.
Dr Jennifer Rider, of Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, said the result should be interpreted with caution although they are ‘particularly encouraging.’
She said: ‘While these data are the most compelling to date on the potential benefit of ejaculation on prostate cancer development, they are observational data and should be interpreted somewhat cautiously.
‘At the same time, given the lack of modifiable risk factors for prostate cancer, the results of this study are particularly encouraging.
Here Is How Orgasms Help.
Regular orgasms may flush out cancer-causing chemicals in the prostate.
Another theory is that regular cleaning out of sperm allow new cells to develop, thereby helping to stop the build-up of old cells that might likely to turn cancerous.
