    Research studies have shown that daily doses of over the counter pain relievers known as NSAIDs may protect against prostate cancer.

    This study found that men over age 60 who took an NSAID daily reduced their risk by as much as 60 percent, and that the benefit seemed to increase as men get older.

    Following are from the source and there are some more ways given for protecting and reducing chances of prostate cancer.

    1. One dietary supplement which seems to dramatically reduce prostate cancer risk is lycopene, especially found in diets heavy in cooked tomatoes. Get 30 mg. of lycopene a day from dietary sources.

    2. Several studies have found that between six and 15 cups of green tea per day can drastically reduce your chance of developing prostate cancer. Although that is a lot of green tea, there are supplements that seem to offer the same protective effect.

    3. four to eight glasses of red wine per week spread out over several sessions will lower your prostate cancer risk...

    4. the safest way to get the vitamin D levels high enough to lower prostate cancer risk is through supplementation. Others are recommending regular sun exposure to achieve those levels. Please note: Vitamin D in very high dosages can cause hypercalcemia and kidney damage.

    5. Saw Palmetto is a supplement that has been proven to reduce the effects of benign prostate hyperplasia, and possibly the risk of prostate cancer. Recommendation: 160 mg twice a day in pill form.

    I'm a nurse. Eat right and exercise. I also heard that tomato juice and sauces are good for the prostate as well. I would look online for some additional info. I don't have a website, sorry. Maybe type in Prostate or something like that. Good luck.

  • Connection between ejaculation frequency and prostate health


    I have been coming across articles on the connection between masturbation, ejaculation, and overall health. I was very surprised about this article from the Cancer Council Victoria in Australia . It was a study that confirmed that ejaculation frequency is important for a healthy prostate. The protective effect was most significant in men in their twenties who ejaculated on average 7 or more times per week. It compared this against same-age men who ejaculated less than 3 times per week. I made a New Year's resolution to pay attention to my body and to ejaculate at least once a day. I feel much better for it and my penis strength and sexual urge has increased immensely. I feel balanced. After a year, I can't imagine going back to my old repressed frequency and probably couldn?t keep from cumming for a whole day if I tried now. Why aren?t people made aware of this need? After getting used to daily +, I often have the urge to do it even more, but hold back. Are there any physical problems with over ejaculating?


    What a fabulous New Year’s resolution to pay attention to your body! Your efforts are worth applauding, as being in tune with yourself and your new masturbation schedule seems to have paid off, as you note that you feel “balanced” and “much better for it.” Happily, no physical problems are associated with over-ejaculating, so don’t worry about giving in to the natural urge to enjoy and pleasure yourself more often. You clearly have a strong awareness of the positive effects of masturbation on your body, so go ahead and experiment with masturbation frequency – in this way, you can determine what frequency feels best for you and your regular routine.

    You also ask why people aren’t made aware of the “need” to masturbate often. Good question – especially in light of the study’s findings that frequent ejaculation helps reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Unfortunately, self-stimulation – as with most sexual acts – is often viewed as shameful, dirty, immoral, and all sorts of other negative adjectives. Wouldn’t it be great if masturbation could be seen as the healthy, enjoyable, and beneficial activity it really is, openly talked about and (gasp!) endorsed? Perhaps one day it will be – with more people like you who are open-minded and bold enough to talk about it in a positive light.

    Enjoy – and pass that article along to friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and anybody and everybody else!

    I personally think that all the hype about regular and frequent sex and/or masturbation is just BS. Prostate problems are just like almost all other health problems, they just happen. Despite sexual frequency, diet, exercise, alcohol, smoking, etc. it happens to men. All the hype about sexual frequency being beneficial to "prevent prostate problems" probably originated with a horny guy looking for and excuse to get more sex.
