Drinking Coffee Reduces Risk Of Prostate Cancer, Study Finds

December 6, 2009: 11:04 AM EST
U.S. researchers who examined 20 years of health records of nearly 50,000 men who drank regular and decaffeinated coffee found that men who drank the most coffee had a 60 percent lower risk of aggressive prostate cancer than men who did not drink any coffee. Caffeine was not the key factor in the correlation, one researcher said. In fact, they were unsure which of the many biologically active compounds in coffee, like antioxidants and minerals, was the most important. “Our results do suggest there is no reason to stop drinking coffee out of any concern about prostate cancer,” they concluded.
