In the U.S. alone, prostate cancer is the third most common cancer affecting the males. Some of the already available remedies to prostate cancer include diet, exercise and regular checkups. However, this new study has added a seemly enjoyable remedy to the disease— ejaculation.
According to the study published in the journal named European Urology, high levels of sexual activity can reduce the risk of contracting prostate cancer.
The study observed the sexual habits of 32,000 men and concluded that those with a higher rate of ejaculation were less likely to have prostate tumors. The study found that men who ejaculated at least 21 times a month had a 33% lower risk of prostate cancer than those that didn’t. The author of the study states:
“We found that men reporting higher compared to lower ejaculatory frequency in adulthood were less likely to be subsequently diagnosed with prostate cancer. This large prospective study provides the strongest evidence to date of a beneficial role of ejaculation in the prevention of prostate cancer.”
In an interview with Ultimate Health, the researchers said: “Twenty-one ejaculations or more per month can protect you (males) from prostate cancer”.
This is not the first time researchers have highlighted the importance of ejaculation. Some past studies have suggested the process flushes toxins from the system. However, experts say frequent ejaculation alone isn’t going to entirely save men from prostate cancer; obesity, tobacco, and high-fat processed food should be avoided too.
Dr James Balch, co-author of the best-selling book Prescription for Nutritional Healing and Prescription for Dietary Wellness, says a good diet is a positive thing to aspire when protecting prostate.
“If a man wants to stay out of the operating room and avoid cancer of the prostate, he needs to go full blast to avoid the high-fat junk foods and environmental toxins that contribute to prostate problems and to start a wise nutritional program that includes the basic supplements that affect the prostate.”
