Study: Fellatio may significantly
decrease the risk of breast cancer in
Thursday, October 2, 2003 Posted: 9:19 AM EDT (1319 GMT)
(AP) -- Women who perform the
act of fellatio and swallow semen
on a regular basis, one to two
times a week, may reduce their
risk of breast cancer by up to 40
percent, a North Carolina State
University study found.
Doctors had never suspected a link
between the act of fellatio and breast
cancer, but new research being performed
at North Carolina State University is
starting to suggest that there could be an
important link between the two.
In a study of over 15,000 women
suspected of having performed regular
fellatio and swallowed the ejaculatory fluid,
over the past ten years, the researchers
found that those actually having performed
the act regularly, one to two times a week,
had a lower occurance of breast cancer
than those who had not. There was no
increased risk, however, for those who did
not regularly perform.
"I think it removes the last shade of doubt
that fellatio is actually a healthy act," said
Dr. A.J. Kramer of Johns Hopkins School
of Medicine, who was not involved in the
research. "I am surprised by these
findings, but am also excited that the
researchers may have discovered a
relatively easy way to lower the occurance
of breast cancer in women."
The University researchers stressed that,
though breast cancer is relatively
uncommon, any steps taken to reduce the
risk would be a wise decision.
"Only with regular occurance will your
chances be reduced, so I encourage all
women out there to make fellatio an
important part of their daily routine," said
Dr. Helena Shifteer, one of the
researchers at the University. "Since the
emergence of the research, I try to fellate
at least once every other night to reduce
The study is reported in Friday's Journal of
In 1991, 43,582 women died of breast
cancer, as reported by the National Cancer Institute.
Dr. Len Lictepeen, deputy chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society, said
women should not overlook or "play down" these findings.
"This will hopefully change women's practice and patterns, resulting in a severe drop
in the future number of cases," Lictepeen said.
Sooner said the research shows no increase in the risk of breast cancer in those who
are, for whatever reason, not able to fellate regularly.
"There's definitely fertile ground for more research. Many have stepped forward to
volunteer for related research now in the planning stages," he said.
Almost every woman is, at some point, going to perform the act of fellatio, but it is the
frequency at which this event occurs that makes the difference, say researchers. Also
key seems to be the protein and enzyme count in the semen, but researchers are
again waiting for more test data.
The reasearch consisted of two groups, 6,246 women ages 25 to 45 who had
performed fellatio and swallowed on a regular basis over the past five to ten years,
and 9,728 women who had not or did not swallow. The group of women who had

performed and swallowed had a breast cancer rate of 1.9 percent and the group who
had not had a breast cancer rate of 10.4 percent.
"The findings do suggest that there are other causes for breast cancer besides the
absence of regular fellatio," Shafteer said. "It's a cause, not THE cause."
Now if this is some sort of a cruel hoax I apologize and am not trying to make light of a terrible disease.

If possible would you post where the website is located. I would like to read about it and see if it is true. Would love my wife to read it too. WINK!|
thanks for the potential gold mine.

The article was interesting but my question is - was this some sort of subliminal advertising for Money Magazine, lol?|
Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

Whodathunkit, Dano. Any ideas on on how to advance this to be a widely practiced part of preventative medicine? lol Keep us posted. Later.|

It was posted on This was sent to me by a friend in Switzerland so seems legit but the post date makes me think we would have heard of this. I am willing to sacrifice myself for the good of scientific research and I am sure once ex-pat gets this he will want to do the same.|
Jester I agree why even leave the house
Jack I would simply print it and hand it to her.
Wahine it came from , not money but I do see the link for free enterprise. Why if they want to pay to have folks donate plasma than what better way to cure underemployment? Women concerned for their health can pay male donors say 20 dollars to help them stay safe and think of the boost to the economy.....something Democrats and Republican lawmakers can finally agree on.
Ky, I am working on the now copyrighted idea for "Dans holistic healing" again the theory is simple say a poor woman on the road for business realizes she has not had her 3 helpings of ummmmm "Dairy" for the week can find a franchised "Dans" in every major city (sort of like a Ryth Chris steak house) and pay her money leaving with a smile and the satisfaction that it is certainly better than a multivitamin. All my male donors will be tested for STDs and be given special diets to assist in the flavor process. Wow I am going to be rich

Dano, I hate to say it, but it's a hoax:|

[Insert Dano's cited article]
Comments: Is it really necessary to debunk this? The names alone expose the text as a spoof: "Dr. B.J. Sooner," "Dr. Inserta Shafteer," "Dr. Len Lictepeen." It is clearly not an Associated Press story.
It first appeared, dolled up to look exactly like a CNN news page, on a college student's Website in early October 2003, suddenly vanishing after the URL went into mass distribution via Weblog and email, only to reappear a day later with a disclaimer stating that the story, now credited to Brandon Williamson, was intended for entertainment purposes only. (The latest version on the original site has been stripped of all references to CNN, presumably due to threats of litigation.) The version of the text posted above above was found in a Usenet message dated October 9, 2003.
Those who find it amusing will probably also enjoy "Ogling Breasts Makes Men Live Longer," a similar spoof circulating since 2000.
