If you want to do something for your health right now, pour yourself a cup of coffee! For women, coffee may lower our risk of breast cancer, and for guys, coffee is now being associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer! And there are more health benefits to your beloved espresso, macchiato, cold brew or Americano.
Researchers in Japan have found as little as one cup of coffee a week (who was this person in the study???) might protect your heart and lower your risk of early death. Now the current issue of the British Medical Journal says drinking coffee has been associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer! This particular study specifically set out to determine if coffee had an effect on prostate cancer risk. The study’s findings suggested, “a higher intake of coffee may be associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer.”
I am a 3-cup a day coffee drinker. How about you??
