Will occasional "self-gratification" negatively effect my health?

A while ago, I read a Jehovah's Witness pamphlet saying that masturbating can result it warts and red eyes and epilepsy. Finding this hard to believe i googled a bit (no jokes please) and came across this website http://www.ayurvediccure.com/over_masturbation.htm, saying that that masturbating results in

* Fatigue. Feeling tired all the time
* Lower back pain
* Thinning hair / Hair Loss
* Soft / Weak Erection
* Premature Ejaculation
* Eye floaters or fuzzy vision
* Groin / Testicular Pain
* Pain or cramp in the pelvic cavity or/and tail bone

Frankly, all this makes me feel a tab rotten, I'd assume "self-gratification" would only strengthen sexual stamina. I'd like to know the truth, and I'm unsure what to believe. I only "self-gratify" on a basis of once a day. I don't understand how this can hurt me.

P.S. Note that this is a serious question, anyone not taking the question seriously or inducing ridicule need not answer. Fundamentalists also need not answer. I don't want to be told I'm making the Lord cry whenever i flick the bird.
