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.
