Masturbation 'cuts cancer risk'
Prostate scans
Researchers were assessing prostate cancer risk
Men could reduce their risk of developing prostate cancer through regular masturbation, researchers suggest.

They say cancer-causing chemicals could build up in the prostate if men do not ejaculate regularly.

And they say sexual intercourse may not have the same protective effect because of the possibility of contracting a sexually transmitted infection, which could increase men's cancer risk.

Australian researchers questioned over 1,000 men who had developed prostate cancer and 1,250 who had not about their sexual habits.

 This is a plausible theory
Dr Chris Hiley, Prostate Cancer Charity

They found those who had ejaculated the most between the ages of 20 and 50 were the least likely to develop the cancer.

The protective effect was greatest while the men were in their 20s.

Men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer later in life.

Fluid

Previous research has suggested that a high number of sexual partners or a high level of sexual activity increased a man's risk of developing prostate cancer by up to 40%.

But the Australian researchers who carried out this study suggest the early work missed the protective effect of ejaculation because it focussed on sexual intercourse, with its associated risk of STIs.

Graham Giles, of the Cancer Council Victoria in Melbourne, who led the research team, told New Scientist: "Had we been able to remove ejaculations associated with sexual intercourse, there should have been an even stronger protective effect of ejaculations."

The researchers suggest that ejaculating may prevent carcinogens accumulating in the prostate gland.

The prostate provides a fluid into semen during ejaculation that activates sperm and prevents them sticking together.

The fluid has high concentrations of substances including potassium, zinc, fructose and citric acid, which are drawn from the bloodstream.

But animal studies have shown carcinogens such as 3-methylchloranthrene, found in cigarette smoke, are also concentrated in the prostate.

'Flushing out'

Dr Giles said fewer ejaculations may mean the carcinogens build up.

"It's a prostatic stagnation hypothesis. The more you flush the ducts out, the less there is to hang around and damage the cells that line them."

A similar connection has been found between breast cancer and breastfeeding, where lactating appeared to "flush out" carcinogens, reduce a woman's risk of the disease, New Scientist reports.

Another theory put forward by the researchers is that ejaculation may induce prostate glands to mature fully, making them less susceptible to carcinogens.

Dr Chris Hiley, head of policy and research at the UK's Prostate Cancer Charity, told BBC News Online: "This is a plausible theory."

She added: "In the same way the human papillomavirus has been linked to cervical cancer, there is a suggestion that bits of prostate cancer may be related to a sexually transmitted infection earlier in life."

Anthony Smith, deputy director of the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University in Melbourne, said the research could affect the kind of lifestyle advice doctors give to patients.

"Masturbation is part of people's sexual repertoire.


"If these findings hold up, then it's perfectly reasonable that men should be encouraged to masturbate," he said. 

My cousin Nikki's husband Greg was deployed to Afganistan for the Army Reserves, and while there he was shot in the head just below his helmet. Through what I can only describe as an absolute miracle he survived the injury and returned to Utah just a few days ago. I'm so happy for their family!

Weird but true

This has to be one of the worst cases on record of adding insult to injury.

Four men broke into a pickup where a man was sitting with his girlfriend.

They drove both of them, in separate cars, to the man's home in Miami, where his wife and kids were waiting for him.

After robbing the family of cash and jewelry, they brought the girlfriend inside -- apparently figuring the man would have so much explaining to do, he wouldn't have time to call the cops.

Heard this on the radio this morning:

 

Rodriguez, 53, left Hillsboro Beach pier, some 36 miles north of Miami, on foot in March. He has moseyed along coastal roads, hitched rides when the weather dictates, camped and stayed in hotels when they open their doors to him. Rodriguez plans to make a grand arrival on the Mall in Washington, D.C., at 3 p.m. on Aug. 27. His journey is all about spreading happiness and uplifting spirits. He hopes it will culminate in a crowd gathering to "smile and wave and say 'America we love you'" at the appointed time.
