Men Raise Your Mugs - Coffee May Fight Prostate Cancer

Drinking coffee may help men avoid prostate cancer according to a recent study conducted by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health.

The findings were published in the May 2011 edition of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

For the study, the researchers analyzed data on nearly 50,000 men who reported on how much coffee they drank every four years from 1986 to 2008.

The researchers found that participants who consumed 1-3 cups of coffee per day were 30% less likely to develop prostate cancer.

They also found that more is better when it comes to coffee consumption and prostate cancer. Participants who drank 6 or more cups of coffee per day saw a 60% reduction in prostate cancer risk.

Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer among men in the United States, with one in six men diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point during their lifetime.

Beyond prostate cancer, previous studies have shown that coffee has a number of other health benefits. These benefits are generally attributed to the powerful antioxidants found in coffee called polyphenols and include reducing the risk of developing diabetes, prostate cancer, cirrhosis and oral cavities.

Over half a dozen different studies have also shown that people who drink coffee regularly are up to 80% less likely to develop Parkinson’s disease.
