SEX VS. BREAST CANCER


Social science strikes again. Neuroskeptic informs us that The Breast Journal has published a study which claims that hot sex can prevent breast cancer.  Sexual frustration, you see, is what causes it. Quoth the author in the abstract: “I hypothesize that prolonged sexual frustration will ultimately lead via aberrantly metabolized sex hormones to the development of breast cancer.”

Women are admonished to dump boring guys and hook up with sexual superperformers, all in the name of preventing this terrible state of, ahem, affairs. If necessary, all those very, very selective high-muckamuck women should overcome their cultural blind spots and seek said sexual superperformers in (oh horror!) lower strata of society.

Neuroskeptic rightly wonders why the references are all about sex, with none about endocrinology or any other medical/biological discipline.

Conclusions:

(1) Hoax.

(2) If not (1), then some silly social science fiend had gotten over the fence and is causing havoc in the medical field.

(3) If not (1) or (2), I’m open to suggestions.

In any case, I think the author is a boob.
