Ebeneezer, a medical doctor and a herbal practitioner at the Amuzu Hospital has instructed men to have sex at least 21 times a month to avoid prostate cancer. She pointed out the need to have steady and frequent sex to avoid prostate cancer.
In a twitter video that has since gone viral online, the Doctor was seen advising men to have sex at least 21 times a month in order to check against prostate cancer. She said her advise is as a result of research findings conducted at Harvard University which was published in a journal called the European Urology.
The research found that men who have frequent sex, do not have the chance to suffer prostate cancer hence others should follow in the same act, she added.
According to researchers at Harvard University men should ejaculate at least 21 times a month in order to mitigate their prostate cancer risk.
For the study, which was published in the journal European Urology, 31,925 men provided their average monthly ejaculation frequencies. From that the researchers found that men who ejaculate more frequently also slash their chances of developing prostate cancer by a third.
"We evaluated whether ejaculation frequency throughout adulthood is related to prostate cancer risk in a large US-based study," wrote the study's authors.
"We found that men reporting higher compared to lower ejaculatory frequency in adulthood were less likely to be subsequently diagnosed with prostate cancer.
"These findings provide additional evidence of a beneficial role of more frequent ejaculation throughout adult life in the aetiology of PC [prostate cancer], particularly for low-risk disease."
“We found that men reporting higher compared to lower ejaculatory frequency in adulthood were less likely to be subsequently diagnosed with prostate cancer.
This large prospective study provides the strongest evidence to date of a beneficial role of ejaculation in the prevention of prostate cancer,” the researchers said.
