    Default Does Frequent Ejaculation Reduce Your Risk for Prostate Cancer?

    There’s exciting news on the prostate cancer front. If you ejaculate frequently, your risk of getting prostate cancer may be reduced. How often is frequent? A study at Harvard Medical School says 21 times a month. A similar Australian study points to seven times a week.

    But there’s a catch: one study suggests it’s only an effective preventative measure in men age 50 and older.

    Keep reading to learn more about this possible connection.

    Steps to reduce cancer risk often include a lot of things you shouldn’t do. So, it may be welcoming news to learn that something many men find pleasurable may help reduce your risk of prostate cancer.Researchers don’t understand exactly why frequent ejaculation might provide protection against prostate cancer. One theory is that ejaculation rids the prostate gland of cancer-causing materials, infection, and matter that can cause inflammation.

    Despite strong evidence in favor of frequent ejaculation, the theory remains controversial. And there are conflicting findings. The greatest controversy regarding these studies is about the age when ejaculation occurs.

    A 2008 study determined that men were more likely to develop prostate cancer if they were very sexually active in their twenties and thirties. The study also found no conclusive evidence that masturbation provide greater risk than intercourse.

    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    Bertrand Russell, “An Inquiry Into Meaning & Truth” (1940)
