Coffee May Reduce Colon Cancer Recurrence
Colon cancer patients who drink several cups of coffee daily may have a lower risk of recurrence after treatment, and an improved chance of cure, according to a study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. This is the first study to link colon cancer recurrence and coffee, but comes after multiple reports in recent years suggesting coffee offers some protection against other types of cancers. The link was only found with caffeinated coffee, and the greatest benefit was seen in those who drank four or more cups daily- about 460 mg of caffeine, leading to a 42% lower disease recurrence.
