I am on the email list of Us TOO, and I received a link to a video today that I wanted to share with you all (and with other men as well).  http://www.ustoo.org/Education-Videos

Unfortunately, Ian and Steve, this link has been changed into a sales site for Men's Health publisher Rodale.  Do a search under "Men's Health" for "prostate" and it takes you to books for sale on the subject.  I guess money wins out over men's health.  (such a shame!)

here's the specific article that Steve is referring to:
http://www.menshealth.com/health/ejaculation-and-prostate-cancer-risk

sounds reasonable.  it is a prescription i am already following, and will continue to follow.

MensHealth Reduce Risk Cancern 40%

I wonder if we in this group had known this back then, if we would be in the shape we are in today. It states to ejaculate 21 times a month. Do you think?

Everyone, I really would like to hear from each of you.

René, I have heard that frequent ejaculations are good for the prostate, whether they happen with another person or with yourself.  (And I have also heard that it is more important for a man if his brother has prostate cancer than his father.)  I am not a doctor; these are just things I have heard.

Elon, I know that some groups are advising against having PSAs done (like some groups are advising women against having mammograms done).  But when a PSA is done, followed up by the digital rectal exam, plus possibly biopsies and other tests -- meaning not just an "evil number" that means "Oh oh!  You've got it!" -- it is the best test we've got.  The key is catching the prostate cancer early.

 I had my 1st rectal & psa blood taken at 49. I had no symptoms, just wanted 2 get it done. I heard so many horror stories. My psa was .9, so I thought that all was ok. My doctor told me that he wanted me 2 have a biopsy. It took 2 weeks 2 read, but the result was cancer. I told him how could it be with a psa of .9, he said it was in the early stages. I took my prostate out and aside from psa check ups every 3 months 4 two years. No other treatment, thank G-d. To all my brothers take psa and rectal erxam early at 40 or earlier if runs in family. Be safe rather than sorry.

50 gallon water heater heats 25 gallons

Brand new 50 gallon water heater still can't fill a standard sized tub, but starts giving tepid water at 25 gals or so.  Service call couldn't find a problem.  I'm beginning to wonder if I'm crazy to expect a hot bath,  or if there's a spell in the house.  Any idea what's wrong?   I'm planning to call the installer again and if he can't fix it have him take it out...but will the next be better?  it has to be the heater, right?See More
