A Harvard University study determined the precise number of times men should ejaculate each month to avoid certain harmful diseases.
Research published in the journal European Urology has shown that high levels of sexual activity can reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
The study observed the sexual habits of 32,000 men and concluded that those with a higher rate of ejaculation were less likely to develop prostate tumors.
The study author says: “We found that men who reported a higher ejaculation frequency compared to a lower ejaculation frequency in adulthood were less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer. This large prospective study provides the strongest evidence to date of a beneficial role of ejaculation in the prevention of prostate cancer.”
To determine exactly how many times men should ejaculate each month, the panel of researchers said 21 will protect you against prostate cancer.
In a discussion with Ultimate Health, the experts said, “Twenty-one ejaculations or more per month can protect you (men) against prostate cancer.”
The study found that men who ejaculated at least 21 times a month were 33 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer than men who didn’t.
Why this helps the prostate has not been fully established, but scientists have speculated that it may flush toxins from the system.
Ejaculation alone won’t save your prostate completely, of course. Experts say obesity, tobacco, high-fat processed foods and heredity are also factors that will lead to prostate cancer, so cut those out for your own good.
Dr. James Balch believes that a good diet is a positive thing to strive for when protecting one’s prostate.
“If a man wants to stay out of the operating room and prevent prostate cancer, he should do everything he can to avoid the high-fat junk food and environmental toxins that contribute to prostate problems and start a sensible nutritional program that includes the basic supplements that affect the prostate.”
