Prostate cancer affects a large percentage of men over the planet, having climbed in the top positions of the most common male cancers in recent years. Third most common cancer for a man in the United States, that is, at the same time that in the United Kingdom, prostate cancer affects males even more.
So, in good nutrition, exercise, and frequent medical checks, there is something else that can be prevented if we believe at least Harvard researchers: high levels of sexual activity can actually reduce the risk of prostate cancer! The study, published in the European Urology Review, analyzed the sexual habits of 32,000 men and concluded that those who had higher monthly ejaculation rates were the more likely to reduce prostate cancer.
“This great study provides the strongest proof today of the beneficial role of ejaculation in the prevention of prostate cancer,” the academics say.
The magical number? The 21! It seems that 21 ejaculations per month can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 33%. The reason why such a frequency helps the prostate is not yet clear, scientists assume, however, that more toxins may be removed from the human body.
