Coffee Drinking May Halve Risk Of Mouth And Throat Cancer

December 13, 2012

I’m pretty darn biased about coffee, because I live in Seattle. It seems like we have a coffee shop every other block throughout the city. It is good for the soul…and more evidence shows it is good for the body as well. Gotta like that!

Notes from article:

A new study from the US finds people who drink more than 4 cups of caffeinated coffee a day have half the risk of dying from oral/pharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancer as people who drink it either occasionally or not at all.

However, the researchers say their findings need to be confirmed by more research, and for now should just be received as good news for coffee drinkers and not be used as a reason to recommend everyone should drink 4 cups of coffee a day.

Researchers Examine Link with Coffee Previous epidemiological studies have suggested coffee drinking is linked to a reduced risk for mouth and throat cancer.

When they analyzed the tea and coffee consumption in relation to deaths from oral/pharyngeal cancer, the researchers found those participants who reported drinking more than 4 cups of caffeinated coffee a day had a 49% lower risk of death from oral/pharyngeal cancer compared to those who reported not drinking coffee at all or only an occasional cup.

The team is now planning to analyze links between coffee consumption and cancer in a more diverse population in the ACS’s new Cancer Prevention Study – 3 (CPS-3).
