Popular discovery that ejaculation reduces the risk of prostate cancer is now once again confirmed.
Also, the researchers emphasize that it is not even important to you is ejaculate through masturbation or intercourse because it’s the same.
In 2004, researchers found that the more often a man ejaculates, it is the risk of prostate cancer decreased. But the results of this research were not sufficiently reliable because it was spent on a small number of participants.
The risk of developing prostate cancer begins to increase dramatically after the age of 50 years. At some risk factors for cancer of the prostate can not influence (genetic predisposition, family history), but there are leading risk factors that can definitely influence, namely:
- chronic inflammation of the prostate
- sexually transmitted diseases
“This theme requires the implementation of a number of studies,” said study leader Dr. Jennifer Rider and added that “it is necessary to be familiar with all the ways by which the risk of prostate cancer can be reduced to a minimum.”
The study included 31,925 men and 3839 of them suffered from prostate cancer. They filled out a questionnaire that included questions about their living habits.
The results have shown that men who ejaculate more than 21 times per month, have drastically lower the risk of cancer of the prostate, as compared to those who ejaculate 3 to 7 times per month. The risk of prostate cancer was reduced by as much as 30% of participants who ejaculate more than 21 times per month.
