Magic Food: Caffeinated coffee may reduce the risk of oral cancers

“A new American Cancer Society study finds a strong inverse association between caffeinated coffee intake and oral/pharyngeal cancer mortality. The authors say people who drank more than four cups of caffeinated coffee per day were at about half the risk of death of these often fatal cancers compared to those who only occasionally or who never drank coffee.” [EurekAlert]

  1. Coffee has also been found to have a significant inverse association with several other forms of cancer. People pay big bucks for antioxidant supplements when a fresh cup of coffee is all they really need.

  2. I need these yahoos to study beer next.

  3. Exogenous antioxidants are not as beneficial as most pushers think, and they may actually be harmful. However, I will not stop drinking coffee.

    Cheers

  4. We need a study to determine the health risks associated with excessive worrying about health risks.
