Orgasm Everyday Prevents Prostate Cancer

Update Date: Dec 29, 2015 02:40 PM EST

A new study conducted by Harvard Medical School suggest that daily orgasm for men can reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer by 20%. Researchers found that the men in the age group of 40-49 years who ejaculated at least 21 times per month were 22% less likely to contract the cancerous disease than those who had an orgasm 4-7 times a month. Dr. Jennifer Rider of Harvard Medical School revealed 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," as reported by Telegraph
The study, however, doesn't explain how more ejaculation helps in abating the risk of prostate cancer, but there have been theories in the past that have been made public. Rider also said that "At the same time, given the lack of modifiable risk factors for prostate cancer, the results of this study are particularly encouraging." According to a report by World Cancer Research Fund International, in 2012, more than 1.1 million cases of prostate cancer were reported making it responsible for 8% of all new cancer cases and 15% cases in men, Medical Daily reported

The most comprehensive research on ejaculation analyzed almost 32,000 men for 18 years who were in reasonably good health. Out of these people, 3839 developed cases of prostate cancer but the figures revealed that the men belonged to the age group of 40-49. The findings of the researcher were adjusted as per the diet and lifestyle of the subjects. The prostate is a small gland that is found only in men and is almost a size of walnut and grows bigger with age. Prostate surrounds a part of urethra that carries urine along the penis from the bladder, said Mirror
