Odd news from around the world

An orgasm a day can slash a man’s cancer risk: Regular sex lowers the ‘chance of prostate tumors by 20%’: “Men who have regular orgasms – once a day – are less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer, a study has found. Regular ejaculation throughout their lives reduces the risk of the disease, scientists discovered. The researchers, from Harvard Medical School, said they could not explain why orgasms could lower prostate cancer risk, adding further research is necessary. The researchers found that men in the 40 to 49 age bracket who ejaculate 21 or more times a month reduced their risk of prostate cancer by 22 per cent. This was compared to men who ejaculate four to seven times a month.” According to a study, men who sleep with multiple women are almost a third less likely to develop the disease. Researchers at the University of Montreal found men who have more than 20 notches on their bedpost slashed their risk of prostate cancer by 28 per cent.”

Wedding is halted when priest asks if anyone objects to the union… and the groom’s WIFE stands up: “It is almost unheard of for wedding guests to object to the union. But at one South African ceremony, a couple had a startling interruption – from the groom’s wife. Ndodana Chifamba, 42, and his bride, known only as Phindile, were preparing to exchange vows at their wedding in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, when the pastor asked if anyone objected to their marriage. Incredibly, a woman swiftly got to her feet and announced she was married to the groom. As other guests looked on in amazement, Josephine Mhlanga, 46, then declared she had two children with her husband of 20 years – and had only found about his secret wedding that day. She said Chifamba – who was, by now, stammering – could not marry again while she was still alive. Following the explosive revelation, the pastor halted the wedding.”

A real magic mushroom: “A farmer from Liaoning, north-east China, has come into an unexpected bit of luck when he stumbled on a giant mushroom in the mountains near his home. The enormous fungus, weighing a total of 70kg (155 lb.) is a Tai Sui, or Ganoderma lucidum, a rare mushroom that’s considered to be the medicine for immortality in traditional Chinese medicine, according to People’s Daily Online. At an average price of 10,000 Yuan (£1,000) for 500g (1.1lbs), the farmer is expected to make 1.4 million Yuan (£140,000) in total. has been described by Chinese news site QQ as having multiple layers, ranging from a tough, yellow exterior to a delicate, pale cream interior. he delicate interior is considered the most prized part and commands the highest prices. Some active compounds isolated from the mushroom were shown to have anti-cancer properties in human trials according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information.”

Four-year-old boy gets new trash cans for Christmas – and he’s overjoyed: “For a four-year-old boy obsessed with sanitation, the new trash cans his parents bought for the house were the best thing he could possibly have hoped for. Jobiah Wells first started taking an interest in the garbage collections when he was just two years old, and now he takes the whole street’s cans to the curb – 17 homes in total. The boy, from Folsom, California, cheers and waves the sanitation men whenever they come, and his interest grew when they started waving back. This year, as other children were asking for toys, he requested new garbage cans for the house, and his mother and the sanitation workers teamed up to help give him what he had asked for. Aaron Wilson, a sanitation worker for the City of Folsom, said he is flattered by the fact that Jobiah thinks they are heroes.”

POTATOES are bad for you?? The Irish should all be dead: “Doctors have warned potatoes may raise the risk of type 2 diabetes. Eating seven or more servings of spuds a week increases the risk of the disease by 33 per cent, compared to less than one full serving, a study found. And even two to four portions increases the risk by 7 per cent, researchers say. Unsurprisingly, French fries are the worst culprit compared with baked, boiled or mashed potatoes. However replacing three servings of potatoes a week with wholegrains – such as rice, quinoa, wheat and corn – could lower the risk of type 2 diabetes by 12 per cent, researchers concluded. The study’s author, Dr Isao Muraki, of the Osaka Center for Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease Prevention, told HealthDay that although potatoes are considered a vegetable in some countries, they should ‘not be regarded as a key component of a healthful diet’. Rather, they should be thought of as similar to a refined carbohydrate.”
