Coffee And… Reduced Risk Of Cancer

Coffee-lovers rejoice (after you’ve had your first cup today, that is): The latest in java research has found that drinking coffee may actually lower the risk of developingmelanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. In the study, published in JCNI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute, 447,357 non-Hispanic whites (the most prone to melanoma) who were cancer-free took a questionnaire on food and coffee intake. After following up with all of them about 10 years later, they found that the highest level of coffee intake was inversely associated with malignant melanoma — meaning that the more coffee people consumed, the smaller their risk was of developing this dangerous skin cancer. The magic numbers: four cups daily for a 20% lower risk.
