“A growing body of research shows that coffee drinkers, compared to non-drinkers, are less likely to have type II diabetes, Parkinson's disease, dementia, have fewer heart rhythm problems and strokes,” says Christine O'Brien in Nutrition & Healing. It seems there's now more to that long list of the benefits of drinking coffee. Read on to discover the role coffee plays in helping prevent prostate cancer...
If you think your coffee drinking habit is bad, put your mind at ease.
Studies reveal that: Coffee lowers the risk of prostate cancer
“A new study of 47,911 men who reported on their coffee intake has revealed that coffee lowers the risk of prostate cancer
,” says O'Brien in Nutrition & Healing
Compared to men who didn't drink coffee, men who drank six or more cups of coffee per day were nearly 20% less likely to have prostate cancer
over the course of two decades.
It gets even better.
Heavy coffee drinkers were also 60% less likely to end up with a deadly form of prostate cancer
While men who drank one to three cups a day were 30% less likely to end up with fatal prostate cancer
So what if you’re trying to cut down on caffeine?
That’s fine, “both the regular stuff and decaf had the same risk-lowering effect,” says O'Brien.
There’s no need to worry if you don’t like drinking coffee. There are plenty of other ways to naturally lower your risk of developing prostate cancer
. You can either have a handful of walnuts each day or take vitamin E.
Now that you know that coffee isn’t only good for getting you going in the morning, but can also protect you from prostate cancer
, why not get your cup of cancer protection right now.
