Coffee Reduces the Risk of Prostate Cancer

Coffee Reduces the Risk of Prostate Cancer
Most people wouldn’t classify coffee as a health food, yet it has many disease-preventing benefits. Coffee drinking is linked to a reduced risk of some cancers and type 2 diabetes. Harvard University researchers— in a 15-year population study involving more than 100,000 men and women— found that people who drank one to three cups of coffee per day were less likely to develop heart disease, lived longer and had less cardiovascular inflammation. Data from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study involving nearly 50,000 men tracked for more than 20 years showed a link between coffee drinking and a reduced risk of prostate cancer. The average man in the study consumed about 2 cups of coffee per day. Men who drank 6 or more cups a day reduced their risk by 18 percent compared to non-coffee drinkers. The results were consistent in men who drank caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee. Coffee may prevent cancer by improving blood sugar regulation, reducing inflammation, neutralizing free radicals and improving sex hormone regulation. Excessive coffee drinking can cause elevated heart rate, insomnia acid reflux and anxiety in susceptible people. (Alternative Medicine Alert)
