Yet another win for the coffee drinker. It seems that this recent study suggests that regular intake of coffee significantly lowers your chances of developing skin cancer. And to the studies credit it’s been conducted by researchers from the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Yale School of Public Health at Yale University in New Haven, CT, is published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. And they’re not exactly going to be sources which carry a large bias in favour of coffee. The study involves almost 500,000 people and their coffee intake was monitored over the course of 10 years. All of the participants showed no signs of cancer at the start of the study. Almost 3000 of the participants developed melanoma over the course of the study. The researchers found that the more healthy coffee that the subjects drank the more they lowered the risks. For example those who drank 4 cups per day were more than 20% less likely to develop skin cancer. The results remained stable even after separating for age, bmi, alcohol intake, smoking and UV exposure. So all in all just another great reason to start drinking more healthy coffee.
