The study suggests that men who ejaculate about 21 times a month can [ahem] beat the odds of being diagnosed with prostate cancer by 33 percent.
To discover the results, researchers studied a population of 31,925 men by sending them a questionnaire about how often they indulge in masturbating.
During the entire study, the men were assessed at three different times, a year before the questionnaire was handed over, in their 20s, and once again in their 40s.
The conclusion of the study recorded that men who ejaculated frequently showed lower rates of developing prostate cancer.
“Frequent ejaculation in men helps them to flush out bacteria and toxins that might build up in the prostate.”
However, the experts also highlighted that masturbation isn’t the only way to keep prostate cancer at bay.
There are other ways to improve physical health that includes eating a healthy diet filled with organic produce, sleeping eight hours a day along with indulging in plenty of exercise.
Researcher Ian Kerner encouraged everyone to, “consume red foods such as tomatoes that are rich in lycopene, as well as soy products that contain isoflavones, along with getting regular physicals that include a prostate exam, and plenty of exercises.”
