A recent study has revealed that men who ejaculate daily are at lower risk of prostate cancer than those who do not.
Prostate cancer is a disease which only affects men. This deadly disease begins to grow in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Moreover, this cancer is one of the leading causes of death among men, second only to lung cancer.
However, a recent study has revealed that men who ejaculate more than 21 times a month have a 22 per cent lesser chance of getting the disease. Although the exact benefits of ejaculation and how it does help to reduce chances of prostate cancer were not revealed, the results could pave way for great benefits to men.
Harvard Medical School professional term findings as “encouraging”
Jennifer Rider of Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, said that while these data are the most compelling to date on the potential benefit of ejaculation on prostate cancer development, they are observational data and should be interpreted somewhat cautiously. She added ‘At the same time, given the lack of modifiable risk factors for prostate cancer, the results of this study are particularly encouraging.
