An Orgasm A Day Keeps Prostate Cancer Away

Prostate Cancer and Orgasms

Prostate cancer can be prevented with frequent orgasms. That’s the message being delivered at this year’s
American Urological Association meeting.

Previous research has linked prostate cancer to genetic factors and the new message says a preventative measure can be taken in the form of frequently experienced orgasms.

The orgasm factor was confirmed in 2004 after a JAMA study found “high ejaculation frequency” may be associated with a lower risk of contracting prostate cancer.

The Health Professionals follow-up study included 32,000 men who were observed for nearly 18 years.

Results from the studies indicated men who ejaculated at least 21 times per month reduce their risk of prostate cancer by 20 percent.

This isn’t exactly a new discovery, in the 1970s researchers found that the early-life mortality rate among men fell by 50 percent when they orgasmed on a more frequent basis.

Why the huge jump in longevity? Researchers believe the release of the chemicals oxytocin and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) — are major factors in lowering the rate for contracting the disease.

Good news for ladies as well, those same chemicals reduce the chances of breast and cervical cancer. Remember to mention that to your wife or girlfriend when you are trying to sell them on the main part of this research.
