Coffee Drops Skin Cancer Risk

latteleaf.jpgNow we’re talking; researchers say that drinking caffeinated coffee (or espresso) can reduce your chances of skin cancer by more than a third. Apparently after studying a group of white (more prone to skin cancer) women they found that those who drank greater than 6 cups of coffee per day dropped their chance of getting cancer by 35% while those who drank 2-3 cups of coffee per day reduced their risk by about 10-12%.

Researchers think that the caffeine acts as an anti-oxidant and stops the cancer cells from dividing or spreading. The kind of cancer affected is non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC). Apparently drinking decaffeinated coffee had no effect on participants' chances of developing skin cancer.

Make mine a double shot please!
