How the Risk of Prostate Cancer is Linked to Ejaculation Frequency?
How tight is the connection between prostate cancer and one biological mechanism? Can these results from one study be actually true? take this “simple” preventative step from the comfort of your own bedroom If you are worried about developing prostate cancer.
Few studies have connected frequent ejaculation during masturbation, sex or while sleeping with reduced risk of prostate cancer.
Ejaculation, according to study published in “European Urology” – journal from edition in 2016, can make a very big difference in preventing prostate cancer.
Researchers made a survey on 32,000 men from 1992 – 2010. They found that participants who reported ejaculating at least 21 times per month during their 20s were 19% less likely to develop prostate cancer than men who ejaculated only 7 times per month or less then this number.
During the 40s frequent ejaculation also appears to reduce the risk for prostate cancer by 22%.
This is not the first research on how ejaculation affects cancer risk. A team of Australian researchers in 2013 compared the frequency of ejaculation y among 2,300 men. Half of them unfortunately had a diagnosis of cancer on prostate. The results showed that ejaculating 5-7 times per week were 36% less likely to develop prostate cancer comparing to those who ejaculated two times or less per week.
However, researchers aren’t totally sure about the results and why ejaculating seems to have big influence on reducing the risk of cancer.
Ejaculation is certainly a “calculate” or measure of our overall health status. Men who ejaculate zero to three times per month have very low end of ejaculation. Therefore, they are more likely to have other medical problems and die prematurely from causes other than prostate cancer.
As conclusion, we can only say that scientists have to make further research. Their goal will be to identify the biological mechanism which is responsible for reducing the risk.
One thing is sure: Sex life is really important for the general health of all men.
