Prostate Cancer, Sex and Ejaculation

Prostate Cancer, Sex and Ejaculation

Fellas, I bet a lot of you have heard that the favorite, preventive, practice for men for prostate cancer is sex.

Is it true, you ask? 

The truth is that there is some truth in that based on a huge study by researchers from Boston University School of Public Health, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Harvard Medical School.

They looked at over thirty thousand men between the ages of 29 to their late 60’s for about 10 years and it showed that men that ejaculate at least 21 times a month average had a lower risk of not only prostate cancer but even the more aggressive form of prostate cancer.

And hey! you don’t need a partner to reap this benefit: Sexual intercourse, and masturbation were all part of the equation.

The study did not show any clear indication why ejaculating reduces your risk for prostate cancer. However, some theory concludes that

  • About 70% of semen is produced in the prostate. So, if you don’t let that out, it clogs up your pipe
  • There are also antimicrobial properties in semen and sperm. So, when you ejaculate, you are literally cleaning up your pipes

To be clear, the study did not prove that ejaculating more will prevent cancer only that it will reduce your risk.

So, what is prostate cancer and are you at risk? 

Prostate cancer is the second most common kind of cancer men get. Skin cancer is the most common cancer, and one in seven men will get prostate cancer at some point in their life.

Risk  

  • If you are over the age of 50 
  • Being an African American male
  • If you have a close relative with a history of prostate cancer
  • Being obsess may increase your risk of getting more advanced prostate cancer
  • Not being active physically 
  • Eating a diet high in animal and dairy fat and low in fiber, fruits, and vegetables may increase your risk
  • Being a tall man 
  • You may also have an increased risk if you’ve had sex with 30 or more women or if you’ve had a sexually transmitted disease. 

No doubt, this a health tip that sounds pretty good to many guys; have more sex, or masturbate more, and you might lower your chances of getting prostate cancer.
