Researchers say frequent ejaculation is good for the health and could save mens’ lives.
According to the studies, new research reveals, ejaculating at least 21 times a month significantly reduces the risk of prostate cancer for men.
In fact, in a study from Harvard University of almost 32,000 men conducted in 1992, researchers discovered that high levels of sexual activity can reduce the risk of contracting prostate cancer by 33 percent.
Monthly ejaculation frequency was assessed in men aged 20-to-29, 40-to-49 and the year before the questionnaire was completed.
The next update has been followed up on 2010 and some 3,839 out of almost 32,000 of the study’s participants were diagnosed with prostate cancer during the investigation.
It was found out that men who frequently ejaculates have low risk of getting a prostate cancer. Few quick calculations were done and almost 70 percent of days in a year – or – that’s equal to 252 times annually. The optimum number is 21 ejaculations per month.
Experts aren’t exactly sure why ejaculation lowers the risk of prostate cancer, but they speculate it might help cleanses and get rid of the gland’s cancer-causing substances and infections through flushing it out.
Ejaculation may also help to ease inflammation, which is a known cause of cancer.
The Harvard researchers pointed out an active sex life may be an indicator of good general health, which in itself is likely to lower the risk of cancer. Enjoyable as it may be, frequent ejaculation isn’t a magical one-stop shop.
Therefore, it’s also important to maintain a good diet and exercise routine, and get regular check-ups from your doctor.
