An excuse for onanism?<br><br><br><br><a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/3072021.stm" target="_blank">BBC link</a><br><br><br><br>
Does this mean that health people will recommend men to eat five portions of fruit and veg a day, and to whip up a shake?<br><br><br><br>
That single men will no longer feel embarassed for carrying a picture of their right hand in their wallets?<br><br><br><br>
And that when mothers ask what the heck they do in their bedrooms all day, boys can reply - trying to cure cancer.<br><br><br><br>
Its already alledged to help weight control, see attached file.

Masturbate and cut risk of prostate cancer, study finds<br><br><br><br>

LONDON, ENGLAND -- Frequent masturbation, particularly in the 20s, helps prevent prostate cancer later in life, according to new research.<br><br><br><br>
Australian scientists have shown that the more men masturbate between the ages of 20 and 50, the less likely they are to develop the disease, which kills more than half a million men each year.<br><br><br><br>
They suspect that frequent ejaculation has a protective effect against the cancer because it prevents dangerous carcinogens from building up in the gland.<br><br><br><br>
"The more you flush the ducts out, the less there is to hang around and damage the cells that line them," Graham Giles, of the Cancer Council Victoria in Melbourne and a professor at the University of Melbourne, told New Scientist magazine in yesterday's edition.<br><br><br><br>
In a survey of 1,079 prostate cancer patients and 1,259 healthy men, Prof. Giles and his team discovered that men who ejaculated more than five times a week in their 20s were a third less likely to develop an aggressive form of the disease. The findings contradict previous studies that suggested that having a variety of partners or frequent sexual activity could increase the risk of prostate cancer by 40 per cent.<br><br><br><br>
But Prof. Giles said the earlier research concentrated on intercourse, whereas his study focused on masturbation. Infections caused by sexual activity could account for the different findings.<br><br><br><br>
"Men have many ways of using their prostate which don't involve women or other men," he added. Reuters

"This is great. My risk of prostate cancer is minimal, by the looks of things!"<br><br>
