Frequent Ejaculation Decreases the Risk of Prostate Cancer

The popular study that ejaculation decreases the risk of prostate cancer, now has been confirmed, and that give to the men one more reason for celebration. It looks like it is not important if you are shooting on your own or with a partner, because the news is so spectacular.

A seminal study in 2004 discovered that the more often they ejaculated, the less likely men were to get the prostate cancer. The prostate cancer seldom appears before 50, and the participants were examined every 2 years from 1992 to 2000. Many of them were yet to hit the top danger years. While the study discovered that the most constant ejaculators were at a lower risk to develop the prostate cancer, average frequency didn’t offer very significant benefit in a comparison with the lowest group.

It is clear that this topic called for more researches, and maybe more engagement on the part of volunteers. Because of that, Dr. Jennifer Rider that comes from the Harvard T.H. Chan School Of Public Health became involved with a follow-up study that prolonged the period over which this research was run from 8 to 18 years.

31,925 men were involved in the study, 3,839 of them have now been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and 384 of them have died from prostate cancer. Those men who ejaculated more than 21 times in the course of one month were considerably less likely to get prostate cancer than those men who did that 4 to 7 times. For those men with a lifetime average above 21 times in one month, the risk of prostate cancer was reduced by a third.

The bad news in this study is that frequent enjoyment doesn’t have a determinable effect on the most deadly forms of this kind of cancer, instead reducing the “low-grade and organ-confined” cancer risks. Possible reasons include the release of many beneficial hormones during the orgasm and also that flushing out of the prostate that happens through the ejaculation.

This study was present in May at the American Urological Association annual meeting, handily go along with international masturbation month.

Rider, with such a large sample unveiling intimate details, was able to investigate the connection between the frequency of getting off and many other factors. Some of the results were really surprising. She reported that ejaculation frequency was inversely connected with age, but also positively connected with physical activity, BMI, divorce, consumptions of calories and alcohol, and history of sexually transmitted infection. It was not established, whether the divorce leaded to more orgasms, or men letting rip outside the marriage were more likely to be divorced.
