No more than 4 ejaculations per week to prevent prostate cancer!

Chinese researchers have discovered that a moderate weekly frequency of ejaculation, ie between 2 and 4 times a week, is associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer.

A few months ago, British health authorities claimed that the more ejaculations, the lower the risk of prostate cancer. They also encouraged men over 40 to ejaculate at least 21 times a month to reduce this risk of cancer. A new study from the University of Sichuan (China) contradicts them, by saying this time the risk of prostate cancer increases more than 4 ejaculations per week (16 per month).

They also claim that the cancer risk also increases with the number of sexual partners (10 partners would increase the risk by 10%) as well as the age of the first report.

With more than 71,000 new cases per year, prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in France. It is very rare before the age of 50 and the average age at the time of diagnosis is almost 70 years old.
