Sex lowers cancer risk

Canadian scientists have found from the surveys of over 3200 men, that men who had sex with more than twenty women—in comparison to just one over their lifetime– had a 28% lower risk of developing prostate cancer. Furthermore, those who said they’d never had sex before, were twice as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than those who said that they had had sex.

However, scientists do not believe it is the number of partners which affects cancer, but rather simply the frequency of ejaculation. Another study published earlier this year indicated that when men don’t ejaculate often, inflammatory cells gather near the prostate, which could lead to cancer.
