I love coffee. The stronger the better and now I know why. A study recently came out promoting the hidden values of drinking coffee for men. Unfortunately, it also mentioned that drinking too much coffee could be bad for you.
Study Finds explains:
LONDON — From brain health to Parkinson’s disease, there are plenty of health issues scientists believe coffee can help with. Now, a new study finds drinking coffee every day could keep prostate cancer at bay and improve chances of survival.
Researchers from Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University say regular coffee drinkers are around 10 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. One in 41 will die from the disease.
While drinking too much coffee can be bad for your health, previous studies have discovered it can also reduce the risk of liver, bowel, and breast cancer. Until now, there has not been enough evidence to suggest it could benefit prostate cancer patients. Study authors believe every cup of coffee consumed could reduce the risk of prostate cancer by one percent.
And from WEBmd we read:
A growing body of research shows that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are:
* less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia
* have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes
Of course, they also annoyingly mentioned the health risks associated with drinking too much coffee.
