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