Daily Orgasms Can Reduce Risk of Prostate Cancer – Study

A study has revealed that men who have regular orgasms once a day are less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Although the researchers don’t know how regular ejaculation specifically reduces the risk of the disease, it has been previously suggested that regular orgasms may flush out cancer causing chemicals in the prostrate.

The study conducted at Harvard Medical School is the largest to date to examine the frequency of ejaculation and related prostate cancer risk.

The study observed almost 32,000 healthy men for 18 years – 3,839 of whom later were diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Dr Jennifer Rider, of Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, said although the results are ‘particularly encouraging’ but should be interpreted with caution.
She said: “While these data are the most compelling to date on the potential benefit of ejaculation on prostate cancer development, they are observational data and should be interpreted somewhat cautiously.

“At the same time, given the lack of modifiable risk factors for prostate cancer, the results of this study are particularly encouraging.”
