Coffee helps prevent cancer

Coffee drinkers tend to live longer than others. Using 3-5 cups of coffee a day is not harmful, and moderate consumption of coffee may reduce chronic disease.

A table of affecting factors announced in June this year by experts from the World Health Organization concluded that regular coffee drinking may protect you against at least two types of cancer, a decision was made after decades of research related to the health benefits of this beverage.

The statement marked a rare reversal of statistical table of affecting factors, as described before coffee was "possible carcinogen" in 1991, associated with colorectal cancer.


Many evidences for health benefits of coffee come from large epidemiological studies, but can not prove causality. But favorable findings about coffee consumption has been very stable over many studies in recent years that many health authorities have confirmed it as a part of a healthy diet.

Last year, a team of scientists who developed Guidelines diet of US federal government in 2015 said there was "strong evidence" that consuming 3-5 cups of coffee a day was not harmful, and moderate consumption of coffee may reduce chronic disease.


Another group, the World Cancer Research Fund, reported that coffee protected us against many types of cancer. Several systematic reviews of studies involving millions of people have found that coffee drinkers tend to live longer than others.

In a report published in the Lancet Oncology, Cancer Research Organization of the World Health Organization said it has assembled a team of 23 international scientists to summarize more than 1,000 studies. According to the organization's evidence, coffee drinking does not cause some types of cancer including breast cancer, prostate cancer and pancreatic cancer, and it is even associated with reducing the risk of cervical cancer and liver cancer. For 20 types of cancer, there is no evidence to evaluate the relationship.

The news about coffee is likely to be welcomed by many Americans - the country with about 130 million people drinking coffee every day. Worldwide, more than 1.6 billion cups of coffee are consumed daily, making coffee one of the most popular beverages in the world after tea.
