Health was in the hands of the man himself. Frequent ejaculation can reduce the risk of prostate cancer, a new research find from Boston University of Public Health.
The study examined how the frequency of ejaculation affects the risk of prostate cancer over 18 years.
The study found that men aged 20-29 who ejaculated 21 or more times a month were 19 percent less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than those who ejaculated 4-7 times a month.
This advantage is not only obtained by young men only. Men aged 40-49 years who ejaculate at least 21 times a month will reduce the risk of prostate cancer to 22 percent.
Mens Health launch, further research is still needed to find the relationship. However, frequent prostate cleansing occurs – through ejaculation – can trim possible infections that can trigger tumors there, says study author Jennifer R. Rider, Sc.D., M.P.H.
Difficulty having sex 21 times a month? No need to worry. This study shows a dose dependence between ejaculation and prostate risk. That is, the more often you do it, the smaller the risks.
So, just ejaculate more often than usual – not up to 21 times – also can reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Not to mention, ejaculation should not be obtained with a partner, but also can be from their own hands. The effect can still be equally lower risk.
