Prostrate cancer risk cut by masturbation

prostate awareness

Researchers from Australia have suggested men could reduce their risk of developing cancer of the prostrate through regular masturbation. Cancer causing chemicals could build up in the prostate if men do not ejaculate regularly.

Australian researchers questioned over a thousand men who had developed prostate cancer and 1,250 who had not about their sexual habits.

They found those who had ejaculated the most between the ages of 20 and 50 were the least likely to develop the cancer.

The protective effect was greatest while the men were in their 20s.
