Coffee Reduces Oral Cancer Risk

Another study on why coffee is healthy: A study conducted by US universities and funded by the American Cancer society showed that drinking coffee halves the risk of oral cancer, even in smokers and drinkers. Adults who drank more than 4 cups of caffeinated coffee per day had a 49% lower risk of dying from mouth and throat cancer than those who drank none or drank it occasionally.  The study was independent of risk factors like smoking and alcohol intake, and the same reduction in risk was not found for tea drinkers.

The study examined around 900,000 people from the study that ran from 1982 to 2008 by the American Cancer Society.
