Men should ejaculate 21 times a month 'to reduce Cancer risk'

Prostate cancer is on the rise. The symptoms of the cancer include: a need to urinate more frequently, an sudden urge resulting in rushing to the toilet, difficulty in starting to pee, straining to wee, weak flow and a feeling that your bladder has not emptied fully.

As well as the regular list of diet, exercise and regular check-ups, researchers at Harvard University have also discovered that high levels of sexual activity can reduce the risk of contracting prostate cancer.

The study observed the sexual habits of 32,000 men and in conclusion determined that those with a higher rate of ejaculation were less likely to have prostate tumours.

The study states: "We found that men reporting higher compared to lower ejaculatory frequency in adulthood were less likely to be subsequently 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."

Apparently 21 times per month is the magic number that can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 33 percent.

Quite why this helps the prostate is yet to be fully determined, but scientists have speculated that it may flush toxins out of the system.

Well, there's something to think about...
