Here's a small excerpt, click the link at the bottom for the entire article.

It will make you go blind. It will make your palms grow hairy. Such myths about masturbation are largely a thing of the past. But the latest research has even better news for young men: frequent self-pleasuring could protect against the most common kind of cancer.

A team in Australia led by Graham Giles of The Cancer Council Victoria in Melbourne asked 1079 men with prostate cancer to fill in a questionnaire detailing their sexual habits, and compared their responses with those of 1259 healthy men of the same age. The team concludes that the more men ejaculate between the ages of 20 and 50, the less likely they are to develop prostate cancer.

The protective effect is greatest while men are in their twenties: those who had ejaculated more than five times per week in their twenties, for instance, were one-third less likely to develop aggressive prostate cancer later in life.

I guess The Pit almost has a 0% chance of prostate cancer.

EDIT: I read a different article which has the same subject, but when I searched online I got this older article.
The newer article in NS says that fapping removes the "toxins" which can cause the cancer.

Oh, that's weird :

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7850666.stm

Men who are more sexually active in their 20s and 30s may run a higher risk of prostate cancer, research suggests.
The Nottingham University study quizzed 800 men on how often they had sex or masturbated.
Those who were most active while younger had more chance of developing cancer later in life.

This is old news dude.


Holy shit! Impossible!
I just read it in the newest NewScientist.
Maybe there's an even newer study out?
Oh well, I guess not many people hear know anyway.

I know!

I think there is some new information as the article I read was talking about how fapping removed certain "toxins" which can cause the cancer.

Dude, I think I would know, Trivium invented Thrash, Metallica are lucky they got as far as they did piggy-backing off of Trivium's signature style.
