So I read on Cracked today that apparently men who get castrated live longer. Significantly longer. Like... regularly living to 70-80, even 100+ in a time when leaches were considered a miracle cure.
This same phenomenon is also present in other animals.
So with that in mind, the question at hand.
Would you rather live to 100 without your nuts? Or would you prefer to die 10-20 years sooner?
I have to admit, if the benefit were only 5 years I'd rather die sooner. But 10-20? That actually makes it a tough call....
