Harvard Says Ejaculating At Least 21 Times A Month Helps To Reduce Prostate Cancer Risk
Remember the news about a Japanese man who had a stroke after masturbating too many times? While some doctors have warned about how overexertion from sexual activity may cause brain bleeding, researchers at Harvard University have seemingly contradicted this statement with their latest study that encourages men to ejaculate at least 21 times monthly to reduce their risk of prostate cancer.
The study, which was published in the journal European Urology, gathered 31,925 men to collect data of their average monthly ejaculation frequencies. The results found that those who ejaculated more frequently actually reduced their risk of developing prostate cancer by a third.
“We found that men reporting higher compared to lower ejaculatory frequency in adulthood were less likely to be subsequently diagnosed with prostate cancer,” said the authors of this study, “These findings provide additional evidence of a beneficial role of more frequent ejaculation throughout adult life in the aetiology of prostate cancer, particularly for low-risk disease.”
In addition to potentially decreasing the risk of prostate cancer, frequent ejaculation is also said to be able to reduce feelings of pain, stress, and anxiety. On top of that, the secretion of endorphins from the act can also enhance one’s immune system, which is definitely a good thing given the state of pandemic we’re in right now.
