To keep your prostate healthy, it’s better to have coffee close to it. Research shows that increasing one cup of coffee a day lowers the risk of prostate cancer by 1%.
Dr. Kefeng Wang’s team at the Chinese Medical University analyzed 16 cohort studies conducted before September last year to investigate the link between coffee consumption and prostate cancer. A total of more than 1 million people were included, of which 57,732 were prostate cancer patients.
The study found that the group who drank 2 to 9 or more drinks a day had a 9% lower risk of prostate cancer compared to the group who drank less than 2 drinks a day, 7% for local prostate cancer, and the cancer to other parts of the body. It was 16% lower in cases of advanced prostate cancer that spread to. In addition, an increase of one cup of coffee a day reduced the risk of prostate cancer by about 1%.
Coffee is known to help prevent cancer because it improves blood sugar levels and has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. There have been studies showing that coffee reduces the risk of liver, colon, and breast cancer, but studies showing whether it is beneficial for prostate cancer patients has not been sufficient.
More detailed research is needed on how coffee affects prostate cancer, but researchers found that the antioxidants in coffee increase glucose metabolism, aid in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities, and thus affect androgenic levels associated with prostate cancer. see.
The researchers said, “The results of this study show that drinking more coffee reduces the risk of prostate cancer,” said the researchers. “The results of the study may have been distorted due to differences in the amount of coffee intake classified and defined in each study included in the analysis. I can.”
In addition, it is pointed out that there is a limit to the amount of coffee intake that participants may have misremembered the actual intake in the past, so caution is needed in interpreting the study results and further studies are needed. The results of this study were published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ Open).
