A new study has found that ejaculating more than 20 times a month can reduce the risk of contracting prostate cancer.
Researchers at Harvard University observed the sexual habits of over 32,000 men for the study and came to the conclusion that high levels of sexual activity can help fight off the cancer, the most common type for men in the United States.
“We found that men reporting higher compared to lower ejaculatory frequency in adulthood were less likely to be subsequently diagnosed with prostate cancer,” explained the author of the study.
“This large prospective study provides the strongest evidence to date of a beneficial role of ejaculation in the prevention of prostate cancer.”
According to the findings, men who ejaculated 21 times or more a month had a 33% lower risk of being diagnosed with prostate cancer, supposedly because the act flushes out negative toxins from the body.
Prostate cancer is a major health issue worldwide—accounting for 15% of all new cancer diagnoses. And while it’s impossible to alter alter a family history of the disease, researchers have found that making some lifestyle changes can lower the risk of contracting it, including eating a more balanced diet.
“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,” concluded the study.
