Movember is upon us and it’s that time again to highlight men’s health issues, particularly prostate cancer. As men all across the globe grow out their facial hair in support of prostate cancer, Men’s Health just recently posted a rather interesting article about how a man’s risk of prostate cancer is reduced with regular ejaculation. That basically gives men all around the world the green light to engage in even more sex than they’re already having (at leas for those men that are not married).
According to the article, researcher Michael Leitzman at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland did an epidemiological study of 30,000 American men and found that those who had an active sex life decreased their chances of having prostate cancer later in their lives. This totally contradicts a previous study that suggested there was a link with more sexual activity and increases incidents of prostate cancer, which was only because of the link with the male hormone testosterone and how it can promote cancer cell growth.
This is amazing news, which should have all men running out to have sexy to reduce their risk of prostate cancer! With Leitzmann’s findings men you ejaculated anywhere from 13 and 20 times a month had a 14% lower chance of getting prostate cancer than those men who only did it between 4-7 times a month for most of their adult life. And then men who were able to ejaculate more than 21 times a month has a 33% lower risk of getting prostate caner.
The study was made up of mostly white male professionals so there obviously needs to be more research on the subject to include more of a diverse testing sample. Still, it’ quite exciting information for men and even more of a reason for them to get busy as much as they can!
So Ladies, don’t be mad, guys are just horn dogs to benefit their health and to lower their chances of getting prostate cancer.
