Coffee, Is There Anything It Can’t Do?
According to a new study, daily coffee intake reduces the risk of prostate cancer:
If that’s java in your cup, drink up. A new study says that men who are heavy coffee drinkers are at lower risk for prostate cancer.
As part of the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study, Harvard scientists followed 47,911 men who periodically described their coffee consumption. The researchers found that those who consumed six or more cups a day were almost 20 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer over two decades than those who drank none.
More important, the heavy coffee drinkers were 60 percent less likely than the nondrinkers to develop a lethal form of the disease. Even men who drank just one to three cups of coffee benefited: They were nearly 30 percent less likely to develop lethal prostate cancer, the study said.
It did not matter whether the coffee was caffeinated or decaffeinated.
Yea but why take the chance?
Honestly, all I need now is a study on the health benefits of daily bacon consumption and life will be great.
