New York: Men who are heavy coffee drinkers are at lower risk for prostate cancer, says a study.
Even men who drank just one to three cups of coffee benefited: They were nearly 30 percent less likely to develop lethal prostate cancer, the study said.It did not matter whether the coffee was caffeinated or decaffeinated.The study, published online Tuesday in The Journal of the National Cancer Institute, is one of the first to link coffee consumption to a lower risk of prostate cancer."We`re not yet telling men to drink more coffee," the daily quoted the lead author of the study Kathryn M. Wilson, research fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health, as saying. "But there`s mounting evidence that if they do, they don`t have to worry about it," she said.Coffee is a major dietary source of antioxidants, and other studies have suggested that drinking it is associated with health benefits, including a lower risk of Type 2 diabetes.IANS
