Recent research has demonstrated that there is a significant inverse relationship with coffee consumption and the development of non-aggressive, aggressive and fatal prostate cancer.
The study is of significance because Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in men with over 40,000 new cases diagnosed every year.
The British Coffee Association, commented, “This new research adds to the growing body of evidence that suggests moderate coffee consumption of 4-5 cups per day is safe and may provide health benefits including reducing the risk of prostate cancer.
“Caffeine is one of the most heavily researched compounds in the world today. There is a wealth of evidence showing that moderate coffee consumption may be associated with health benefits such as reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and even some cancers.
“We have seen a number of recent studies regarding coffee and the risk of prostate cancer, and, while this research is based on a substantial population size, we welcome further research to be conducted in this area to clarify the relationship between coffee and the risk of prostate cancer.”
