There is a scientific study that was published by the American Urological Association in 2015 that reveal that regular ejaculation could reduce a man’s risks of prostate cancer.
As a man, it is important that you take this health tip seriously. It doesn’t matter if you live in a country with an excellent healthcare system, preventing cancer is a lot better than having to treat cancer.
The prostate gland is a walnut shaped organ that is located underneath the bladder. It surrounds the urethra and its main role is to secrete the seminal fluid that gets with sperm cells to form semen that is released during ejaculation.
Because of how the prostate gland wraps around the urethra, some of the obvious symptoms of prostate cancer include the following:
- Frequent urge to urinate
- Difficulties when starting or stopping urinating
- Weak flow of urine
- Involuntary stoppage of urine
- Burning or painful sensation during urination
- The urge of wanting to urinate even after urinating
- Spots of blood in the urine or semen
- Painful ejaculation
The head researcher of the study that linked regular ejaculation with lower risks of prostate cancer is Jennifer Rider, an epidemiologist at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
The study shows concrete evidence that increasing the amount of times that you ejaculate helps in decreasing your risks of prostate cancer. The researchers asked the men who participated in the study how many times they ejaculated each month and the results were amazing.
The men who ejaculated 21 times or more each month had up to 20% lesser risks of prostate cancer than men who ejaculate less than 7 times each month.
In the research study, 38% of the men who were aged between 40 – 49 years said that they ejaculated 8 – 12 times each month. Less than 9% of the men in the 40 – 49 years age range said that they ejaculated above 21 times per month.
So, ensure that you are ejaculating at least 21 times per month if you would like to reduce the occurrence of prostate cancer as you get older.
