Coffee Consumption Lowers Risk Of Prostate Cancer

May 17, 2011: 10:34 AM EST
A prospective analysis of 47,911 men who participated in the Health Professional Follow-up Study revealed a strong inverse relationship between coffee consumption and risk of having prostate cancer. Researchers employed Cox proportional hazards models to evaluate the link between coffee consumption and prostate cancer. Results of the study showed men who on average consumed six or more cups of coffee per day had a decreased risk for overall prostate cancer than non-coffee drinkers. Also, the researchers discovered that the link, which was "similar for regular and decaffeinated coffee," was stronger for lethal prostate cancer.
