Drinking Coffee is Good For Us! It Can Prevent Cancer!

Coffee can prevent cancerI could have sworn that just a few years ago we were warned to limit our caffeine intake.  But caffeine is not the magic ingredient in coffee that makes coffee a good thing! ABC’s Jeremy Hubbard reported for World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer that recent studies have shown that drinking coffee and even lots of coffee! may be a powerful partner in the prevention of certain cancers.

It seems that coffee, even decaffeinated, contains several antioxidants including a powerful one called methylpyridinium which is practically non-existent in any other food or drink.

Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health with backing from the National Cancer Institute discovered that men who drink six or more cups of coffee daily had a 60% lower risk of developing lethal prostate cancer.  In men who drink only one to three cups still had a 30% drop. The reported said lower risks of diabetes, lowers risk of Parkinson’s disease and lower risks of cirrhosis and liver disease are also associated with coffee drinking.

And Dr. Mehmet Oz also agrees that coffee can be good for you. On The Dr. Oz Show he has touted the benefits of coffee on many of his shows.  Dr. Oz says coffee can:

  • Help regulate blood sugar levels. Studies have show that drinkers of both regular and decaffeinated coffee had reduced risks of developing type 2 diabetes.  But that does not include sugary, creamy coffee drinks.
  • Help prevent gallstones.  Research shows that caffeine can reduce the cholesterol levels in bile, thus cutting your risk for developing gallstones..
  • 5 cups of coffee daily reduces the risk of Brain Cancer
  • 3 cups of coffee daily reduces the risk of Breast Cancer.
  • 2 cups of coffee daily reduces the risk of Uterine and Colon Cancers

Since 58% of Americans drink coffee every day, this is Good News!
