Men must ejaculate 21 times monthly to avoid prostate cancer – Medical Expert

Adapted from The Nation

Men have been advised to ejaculate for not less than 21 times in every month and five times each week if they want to avoid prostate cancer. A twitter video circulating online shows the female herbal practitioner, Dr. Ebenezar of Amuzu Hospital emphasizing the need for men to have sex frequently to safeguard themselves against dreadful cancer.

While explaining the need for men to pay attention to regular sexual habit, she backed her advice with research conducted by researchers at Harvard University which was published in a journal called the European Urology.

According to the research, men who engage in frequent sexual activity stand the chance of evading prostate cancer, and the vice versa.

The researchers observed the sexual habits of 32,000 men and came to the determination that those with a higher rate of ejaculation were less likely to have prostate tumors.

“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.

Breaking down the findings of the research, they advised: “21ejaculations or more per month can protect you (males) from prostate cancer.”

Dr. James Balch, a member of the American Medical Association and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons believes that men must eat good foods to stimulate frequent sexual desire and activity in order to stay away from prostate cancer.

“If a man wants to stay out of the operating room and avoid cancer of the prostate, he needs to go full blast to avoid the high-fat junk foods and environmental toxins that contribute to prostate problems and to start a wise nutritional program that includes the basic supplements that affect the prostate,” he is quoted as saying.

To avoid sudden death of your man friend, boyfriend, husbands, women, ask your men for more sex.

American music star Jidenna Theodore Mobisson better known as “Jidenna” spent more than one week in Uganda where he performed at the Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards (ASFAs) and Blankets & Wine.  During his stay in Uganda, he got to chance to have a mini vacation in Murchison Falls National Park courtesy of Uganda Tourism Board and Talent Africa.
Jidenna spent three days in Murchison Falls National Park which sits on the shores of Lake Albert, in northwest Uganda. This is where the River Nile explodes through a narrow 7m metre gorge and cascades down to become a placid river whose banks are thronged with hippos and crocodiles, waterbucks and buffaloes.
The vegetation is characterised by savannah, riverine forest and woodland. Wildlife includes lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, hartebeests, oribis, Uganda kobs, chimpanzees and hundreds of bird species.
Jidenna participated in numerous tourist activities including a game drive, bike safari, boat ride and a hike to the top of Murchison Falls. He was accommodated at the newly renovated Nile Safari Lodge. The stunning development is situated on the southern banks of River Nile surrounded by a papyrus forest. Nile Safari Lodge offers beautiful wooden chalets which are all uniquely located with amazing panoramic views of the national park along with the African wilderness.
Jidenna states “The trip to Murchison Falls was magnificent and euphoric. I was in awe and struck by the power, force and finesse of the waterfall.  What I love about here was being surrounded by nature, water and greenery. I learned a lot about animals on this trip and realised they are just like people in many ways. Uganda will definitely be a country I visit again really soon.
Aly Allibhai from Talent Africa states “It was a pleasure hosting Jidenna in the Pearl of Africa this last week, we got chance to show him Murchison Falls National Park and a different side Uganda that people in the western world are not aware of. Uganda is an amazing tourist destination and its celebrities like Jidenna who can help market our country to the rest of the world.

Mental Health Uganda Candle Light event, stirs conversation on breaking stigma

Kampala: Mental Health Uganda candle light event helped to break the silence on stigma as mental health Champions shared their experiences in a celebration mark the annual world mental health day at hotel Africana.

Sarah Tushemereirwe, a Champion and partner with Mental Health Uganda, in an emotional panel discussion revealed how she attempted several times to take away her life.

“I wanted to take my life to end the pain I was going through and reduce the burden of my condition to the family but God still wanted me to live, I am here to share my story so as to shed light on such a topic which remains highly secretive and a taboo to talk about” Tushemereirwe said.

Even then she acknowledged that, suicide as a mental disorder can be prevented because people look at it as the last resort to ending the pain they are going through. However, with immediate support the condition can be tamed.

She further noted that, the stigma associated with having a mental illness is immense coupled with criminalization around it. However, she believes “suicide prevention” as the theme of this year’s world mental health day celebration will save many lives. She is skeptical that to amplify voices, the population needs to be educated to understand the various preconditions that can cause mental health illness vis-à-vis the problems they present.

In his remarks, Derrick Kizza, the Executive Director Mental Health Uganda revealed that suicide is real and a number of suicide cases remain undocumented because people fear to report cases of suicide and attempted suicide to police for fear of being held accountable.

Indeed, according to the penal code, a person who attempts suicide is to be incarcerated and in chapter 20, under offences connected with murder and suicide, any person who attempts to kill himself or herself commits a misdemeanor.

He cited cultural practices and societal break down including the absence of family support mechanisms as another impediment in curbing mental health related issues in the country. He adds that, there will always be warning signs for people with mental health problems but often they are ignored by their own families and friends.

“People who have died by suicide have always at a single point shared how they want to end their lives but those around them rub them the wrong way, they are not given attention or are asked to go on with their action” Kizza said.

That alone is an indication of a planned action besides other signs that could depict that someone is about to commit suicide which he says should never be ignored.

With an aim of spurring conversation around mental health condition in the country, Mental Health Uganda held a candle light event that had guests and champions light up candles in good gestures of hope for those going through the darkest moments of their lives.

With a localized theme of “Getting Suicide out of the shadows in Uganda” the 40 seconds of action for mental health was the best for champions, stakeholders and activists to tell in-depth personal and heart felt experiences.

“The candle is symbolic in our lives, the darkness after the lights were switched off represents the troubles and sad moments we go through. When I received a candle light from another person I felt hopeful, I realized I was not alone, my neighbour and friends were like my source of inspiration to live again. Passing on the light myself, was a sign of responsibility that we urge everyone to embrace in trying to help people undergoing mental health challenges” said Wilbroad Kabagambe, a Mental Health champion.


Pat Robert Larubi, the communications officer at Mental Health Uganda says the event is one in a series of actions aimed at opening up conversations around mental health. A moment where people are able to speak out about their experience of mental health problems like depression, anxiety, bipolar and addiction, find help, challenge myths and change how people in the heart of Kampala and the country at large think about mental health.

“As Mental Health Uganda we want to create a unified voice of people that influence the provision of required services and opportunities in favour of people with and survivors of mental illness in Uganda through capacity building, networking, advocacy and partnerships.

The most cardinal part of is event is to challenge everyone to start a national conversation about suicide. Silence can have tragic results while knowledge will save lives given the fact that 1-4 people in the world experience a mental health problem at some point in their life, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Our campaign is part of a global movement with other campaigns happening across the world as human rights activist, defenders, policy makers, survivors and/or champions join hands to bring their voices forward for action.

In Uganda, there are numerous challenges that come when one gets first or subsequent episodes of relapse from mental health problems. They are ridiculed and labelled leading to society or self-isolation due to the stigma. Most people with mental health complications have not been equally welcomed to the world of work, they wallow in poverty besides their rights being abused.
