Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, supports a recent study that shows a tie between circumcision before first sexual intercourse and the risk of developing prostate cancer in men.
New research published online by Cancer has said that circumcision (specifically before first-time sexual intercourse) might reduce the likelihood of prostate cancer.
The study included 1,754 who had prostate cancer. Undergoing circumcision before first sexual intercourse was linked with a 15% reduced risk of developing prostate cancer. This finding is considered to be an association only.
Co-author of the study Jonathan Wright from University of Washington School Medical School says the findings are “a biologically plausible mechanism through which circumcision may decrease the risk of prostate cancer”.
The study draws associations between circumcision and prostate cancer but the theory is that some prostate cancers may be linked to sexually transmitted infections according to findings published in Cancer.
Dr. Victor Marchione, M.D., an expert in Pulmonary Medicine says these results are very interesting. “This news is big throughout the medical community and is especially important for people who know someone with prostate cancer. We know other risks have already been established, such as older age and family history”.
