According to a study, drinking coffee helps prevent prostate cancer and increases the chances of survival from the disease.
Her coffee helps prevent or combat the prostate cancer. These are the conclusions reached by the researchers of the China Medical University, the study of which was published in the scientific journal British Medical Journal.
According to data collected by analyzing the profiles of over one million people, included in 16 studies published before September 2020. Of these, 15 were compared consumption of coffee with the risk of prostate cancer. The daily intake ranged from none to 9 or more cups.
After this analysis, the researchers concluded that regular coffee consumption helps reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer by 10%. Looking in more detail, based on the amount of beverage ingested the benefits would range from 9 to 12%.
Coffee and prostate cancer, increased chances of survival
To this would be added a further 16% of probability of survival, in case of prostate cancer, if you consume the drink every day. As the lead author of the study, Dr. Kefeng Wang pointed out, the conclusions drawn should be given due consideration as:
The observational nature with which several cohort studies included in the review were carried out exposes the risk that uncontrolled and unmeasured factors present in the original studies have altered the estimated risk obtained.
The amount of coffee drunk may have been poorly expressed as it was based on memories. Another risk factor is the type of coffee consumed and the different methods of preparation varying between the different studies. The construction and methods of the various studies included were diversified, therefore caution should be exercised in interpreting the results obtained.
