Sex with 21 women lowers risk of prostate cancer

Postby Algernon Sydney is Dead » Wed Oct 29, 2014 8:27 am

Forget all that clown stuff.

Sex with 21 women lowers risk of prostate cancer.

Now that's research I can, um, get behind. :P

Alas:
Men who said they had never had sexual intercourse were almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer as those who said they had.

Talk about insult and injury... That's just cruel Nature/God/Satan/etc. really piling it on! :(

Makes you wonder...

Did men evolve to have multiple partners? Is prostate cancer a consequence of sexual restraint? Would an extended course of hand-jobs negate the effect of having few sexual partners? How many thousands or millions of years would it take for the effect (if it exists) to disappear. What will humans look like a few million years from now?

These questions and many others will not be answered by me :)

While it might decrease my risk of dying of prostate cancer it would certainly increase my risk of being beaten to death with a frying pan.

Your risk of dying from Prostate Cancer is pretty small anyway. I know someone with Prostate Cancer, and the doctors are just monitoring the situation. Apparently, it is not usually very aggressive and tends to be something you die WITH, like an Appendectomy scar, rather than something you die FROM, like a cut throat.
The truth may be out there, but lies are inside your head.

Anecdotal. And, to put it delicately, some healthcare systems are notorious for that kind of service.

Refer to the American Cancer Society's Current Global Cancer Facts & Figures (PDF):

Prostate cancer is one of the leading cancer killers in men, responsible for up to 25% of all cancer deaths, in males, depending on the country. In general, prostate cancer kills more men than breast cancer kills women, although this also varies by country and by who is reporting the statistic.

(The really sad thing is that about 400 American MEN die of breast cancer each year. :( )

Interesting news report. I'll make sure to tell my wife right away and see how much she really cares about my health.

Concerning the outlook when diagnosed with prostate cancer, I was going to say that there are always exceptions to any rule... but then I thought, that can't be right... how about a rule like "If you drop a fragile piece of porcelain from a tenth-floor window onto a concrete surface, it will break"? Are there ever exceptions? I suppose a large bird might fly past at just that moment, providing a soft surface for the falling item, then circle down to the ground where the item can fall gently to the ground. But how about a grand piano? It would take a very large bird, or perhaps a flock of large birds, to have the same sort of effect. Something to ponder, or not.

Bubble Wrap!

Lots and lots of Bubble Wrap!

Also a very large parachute.

Sometimes you have to make your own exceptions. :P

Anyway... Just because it's a tenth story window, that doesn't mean the concrete surface is ten stories below. It might just be a concrete ledge a few inches down. ;)

Why is everyone missing the important question?:
Does it have to be at the same time?

Almost hypnotic... that nodding head, like one of those dogs people [used to?] have on their car dashboards.
