Many Coffee Drinking Can Prevent Cancer

 A new study shows that eating five cups of coffee a day can protect you againstaggressive breast cancer. Really? It is known that breast cancer does not respond to various drugs, thus chemotherapy is often the only option. Chemotherapy feared because women do not want to change a bad appearance, such as the risk of hair loss. The researchers say that those who regularly enjoy a hot drink far less likely to developestrogen receptor negative breast cancer, especially if they drank five or more cups ofcoffee a day.

In the study, researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm found coffee drinkershad a lower incidence of breast cancer than women who rarely drink. They analyzed data from nearly 6,000 women who are past menopauseThe women who drank five or more cups a day had a reduced rate of breast cancer risk of 57% compared with those who drank less than one cup a day.

Based on a report in the journal Breast Cancer Research, the scientists concluded that the high levels of coffee intake per day is associated with a statistically significant reduction in breast cancer estrogen-receptor negative among postmenopausal womenAs reported by Dailymail, the authors also found a slightly reduced risk in all types of breast cancer. Although the correlation was significant enough to consider a number of other factors such as age and weight must be taken into account.

The researchers speculate that coffee contains compounds that affect different types of breast cancer in a different way. This fits with the finding that drinking coffee may reducebreast cancer risk overall, although experts say further study is needed
