A Jolt of Java May Be Just What the Doctor Ordered-Coffee May Reduce The Risk of Prostate Cancer

In cases you needed one more excuse to have a cup of coffee in the morning, a study conducted at the Harvard School of Public Health demonstrated that men in a study of nearly 50,000 men who consumed the most coffee, i.e., six or more cups\day, were nearly 20% less likely to develop any form of prostate cancer.  Even more interesting, the heavy coffee drinkers were also 60% less likely to be diagnosed with a lethal prostate tumor.  Those who drank between 1-3 cups\day were 30% less likely to develop a lethal case of prostate cancer.  The risk of prostate cancer was decreased regardless of whether the men drank decaffeinated or regular coffee.

Bottom Line: Coffee may give you a boost of energy and concentration but it also can boost the health of your prostate gland and reduce your risk of prostate cancer.
