Coffee Helps Fight Off Cancers
For many of us, coffee is a major staple of our everyday lives. It is delicious, and it gives us the kick we need to get the day started.
According to new research, coffee has additional health benefits. Scientists have found that women who drink an average of three to four cups of coffee per day had a 25% lesser chance of developing certain cancers than those who did not.
This mainly has to do with the effect that coffee has on estrogen and insulin in women’s system which have been implicated in endometrial cancer.
Additionally, a study done by Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School followed 112,897 men and women over a 20-year period and found that women who drink three or more cups of coffee a day are much less likely to develop skin cancer than those who don’t.
Unfortunately, the added benefits only exist with caffeinated coffee, and not with decaf, and applied only to those who consumed coffee on a regular basis.
So pour yourself that extra cup ladies! It might just help save your life.
