Dr. Charity Twumasi-Ankrah has advised men to avoid prostate cancer by not having frequent sex as too much ejaculation puts them at risk.
Speaking on an Accra-based television station, the medic indicated too much ejaculation predisposes men to prostrate cancer.
The CEO of Chartma Herbal Health Centre says in each ejaculation, about 400 million cells equivalent to a pint of blood is released.
This, among other reasons is why she says men should reduce the frequency with which they have sex.
She advised two times of sex per week for men to reduce the risk of attracting prostrate.
“I keep telling men that too much of everything is bad. And you know as a man, if you ejaculate, it contains 400 million cells. So if man just walks into a room with a woman and they have sex, he brings out 400 million cells. Now if the gland is overused, the possibility that it will cause prostate cancer is high. So at least do twice in a week. It’s ok. Don’t kill yourself,” she advised.
Prostrate cancer she noted, has become a major health concern looking at how high the number of diagnosis rise. Usually, it used to affect only the elderly unlike how young people are also getting it nowadays.
What is prostrate cancer?
A prostate cancer occurs in the prostate –a small walnut-shaped gland males that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm.
Prostrate cancer is a common type of cancer. Many prostrate cancers grow slowly to the prostrate gland, grow slowly and are confined to the prostrate gland which may not cause serious harm.
Some cancers, however, develop slowly and do not cause any harm whilst others are aggressive and can spread quickly.
Prostate cancer that’s detected early — when it’s still confined to the prostate gland — has the best chance for successful treatment.
According to Dr. Twumasi-Ankrah, aside from the prostate cancer, frequent sex also leaves men weak in their young age.
