Scientists Medical research Institute QIMR Berghofer in Australia came to the conclusion that daily consumption of coffee reduces the risk of developing cancer or death from cancer. About it reported in a press release on MedicalXpress.
The researchers analyzed data on 46 thousands of people who have been diagnosed with cancer, including about seven thousand people who died from the disease. Genetic information and preferences in food were compared with data from a survey of 270 thousand people, who never suffered from cancer. Considered tumors of the breast, ovaries, lungs and prostate. It has been discovered that coffee does not increase and does not reduce the incidence.
According to scientists, although there is work showing that drinking coffee reduces the likelihood of developing colorectal cancer, there is also evidence that people with a genetic predisposition to loving coffee more likely to suffer from this type of cancer. This discrepancy pointed to the need for additional research. New work has demonstrated that the tendency to drink coffee is neither a risk factor nor a protection from cancer.
