LONDON — A recent study has pointed out that men, who have an orgasm every day, have a lower risk of prostate cancer than men who do not ejaculate regularly, according to a new study.
The study showed that men who ejaculated more than 21 times a month had a 22 per cent lower risk of getting the disease, the Mirror reported.
The study doesn’t give any reasons why the practice of ejaculation may help to stave off prostate cancer, but there are theories which have been made public previously.
Jennifer Rider of Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, said that while these data are the most compelling to date on the potential benefit of ejaculation on prostate cancer development, they are observational data and should be interpreted somewhat cautiously.
She added “At the same time, given the lack of modifiable risk factors for prostate cancer, the results of this study are particularly encouraging.”
According to the World Cancer Research Fund International, in 2012, there were more than 1.1 million cases of prostate cancer, making it accountable for 8 percent of all new cancer cases, and 15 percent of cancers in men.
Hoteliers asked to be sensitive against GBV
KATHMANDU- Stakeholders have called upon the hoteliers to remain more sensitive in order to reduce the gender-based violence (GBV) taking place in hotel sector.
During an interaction programme in Tarakeshwor Municipality in the capital city on Saturday, the speakers said that the hoteliers are expected to become more aware since more cases of rapes and violence against women take place in the hotels.
A large number of hoteliers attended the interaction programme organized as a part of the 16-day campaign against GBV.
On the occasion, lawmaker of Kathmandu Constituency No. 7 Ram Bir Manandhar said that partnership among all was needed to end GBV and argued that social networking sites were responsible for the increased cases of GBV in the recent times.
Likewise, Mayor of Tarakeshwor Municipality Rameshwor Bohora pointed out the need for cooperation with the police administration as well as massive public awareness programmes to end such ill practices rampant in the hotel business.
Also speaking at the programme, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) of Balaju Metropolitan Police Circle Chiranjivi Koirala urged the hoteliers to keep the details of every new entrant in the hotels since hotels are used for the purpose of women’s trafficking.Follow @gorkhapost
