Study: Boiled Coffee Cuts Breast Cancer

Published måndag 14 juni 2010 kl 18.52

A new study out of Umeå University indicates that drinking coffee can protect a woman against breast cancer. But the effect was not just seen with any coffee: it had to be boiled rather than brewed in a standard coffee machine.

Women who drank boiled coffee more than four times a day had a lower risk of suffering from breast cancer compared to women who drank a cup of the brown elixir only once per day or less seldom, news agency TT writes.

The researchers conjecture that the difference between boiled and brewed coffee stems from the fact that boiled coffee retains 80 times more fatty acids known to hamper the spread of cancer in animals.

The study is based on 64,000 people and has been published in the journal Cancer Causes & Control.
