Frequent Ejaculation Reduces the Risk of Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in American men (skin cancer is first). In 2015, cancer experts expect about 220,800 new cases of prostate cancer and 27,540 deaths from the disease. About 14 percent of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetimes. While regular exercise and consuming a healthy diet might reduce the incidence of the disease, scientists can’t really point to any modifiable risk factors— until now. A study led by Jennifer Rider from Harvard University found that frequent ejaculation reduced the risk of prostate cancer. Researchers followed about 32,000 men for 18 years. Nearly 4,000 men developed prostate cancer and 384 of them died. Men who ejaculated 21 times a month reduced their risk of the disease by 20 percent. The most frequent ejaculators in the study were divorced men in their 40s. The best way to prevent prostate cancer is to have more sex— with a partner or by yourself.
