A new research has found out that having lots of orgasms regularly can reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
Until recently, prostate cancer was thought to be one of those cancers that could not be prevented because it was linked to genetic factors.
However, during this year’s American Urological Association meeting, researchers announced they discovered a preventative measure, that may reduce the risk of prostate cancer: frequent orgasms.
According to elitedaily, this idea was first identified in 2004 after a JAMA study found “high ejaculation frequency” may be associated with a lower risk of getting the disease.
This study called Health Professionals Follow-up involving 32,000 men who were observed for about 18 years found that men who ejaculated at least 21 times per month reduced their risk for prostate cancer by about 20 percent.
A previous study in the 1970s had also found that the mortality rate among men who already had prostate cancer fell to 50 percent when men had more orgasms.
This is probably because the chemicals released during an orgasm, oxytocin and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), are major factors in lowering the rate of getting the disease.
