Coffee appears to have some significant cancer fighting benefits. According to medical research, coffee is associated with a reduced risk of cancers. There’s even a study that found higher coffee consumption is associated with reduced mortality from colorectal cancer.
Several compounds found in coffee possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and insulin-sensitizing effects, which may contribute to anticancer activity.
In most studies 3 or more cups daily provide better protection than 1 cup daily. If you are sensitive to caffeine you may have to limit your consumption, ilute the coffee, drink early in the day, or switch to naturally decaffeinated.
Coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of many cancers including endometrial cancer, liver cancer, head and neck cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, pharyngeal cancer, melanoma, skin cancer, kidney cancer, gastric cancer, leukemia, brain cancer, and thyroid cancer.
My preference is black coffee....
