There have been numerous coffee benefits discovered throughout the years. A new study indicates that coffee may help to prevent some forms of skin cancer. According to a recent online article a study published July 1 in the journal Cancer Research implies that consuming coffee may reduce the risk of developing basal cell carcinoma which is the most common form of skin cancer. The study also discovered that tea with caffeine; colas and even chocolate also seem to reduce the risk as well. Female participants who consumed in excess of 3 cups of caffeinated coffee daily were 21% less likely to develop skin cancer compared with women who consumed less than one cup every month. In contrast male participants experienced a reduction risk that was 10%. “It’s the caffeine that’s most likely responsible for the beneficial effect,” said study co-author Jiali Han, an associate professor at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, in Boston. “Caffeine inhibits tumor progression. We saw the effect in mice and thought we should do this research to see if it applies to humans, too.” Han added that it is likely that increasing the amount of caffeine consumption would correlate with risk reduction however he does not recommend caffeine consumption for everyone.
