Prostate cancer research. 32 thousand participants
Scientists set out to find out if there was a relationship between frequency of intercourse and prostate cancer. To this end, they conducted a study analyzing the sexual habits of 32,000. men. The experience led experts to conclude that people with higher ejaculation rates are less likely to develop prostate cancer.

Surprising conclusions of scientists. Just do it often
Urologists also calculated the minimum number of ejaculations that allow for optimal protection. The study found that men who ejaculate at least 21 times a month had a 33% increased risk of developing the disease. Younger than those who did not.
