coffee protects against cancer – or does it?

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on February 26, 2011

If you’re looking for cancer-related info then you should browse this site – there’s loads of useful info – also look at my two cancer books – see for details.

Coffee protects against cancer?

Dr Michael Roizen believes coffee is very healthy for you – and is protective against liver and ovarian cancers. Get the story here

This goes against previous suggestions that coffee was bad for you – increasing your chances of getting pancreatic cancer

and the New York Times article based on this study

But this association was not supported by other evidence

Overall, coffee appears to be good for you – people who drink coffee tend to live longer thasn people who don’t. Also the benefits appear to include oral and throat cancers (a pretty good test of whether or not coffee is healthful as these are the parts of the body that come in closest contact with the stuff) and prostate cancers – for a full list of benefits and risks see following link
