Coffee cuts prostate cancer risk

A Swedish study is to confirm the results of a new report from scientists in the USA, that drinking coffee can prevent prostate cancer.

The American survey found that the risk of getting severe prostate cancer was much lower in men that drank over six cups of coffee a day, and according to Henrik Grönberg from Karolinska Institute here in Stockholm, they have found similar results in their study, to be published soon.

Speaking to Swedish Radio News, Grönberg says even drinking decaffeinated coffee has the same benefits, and says the positive impacts could be due to the anti-oxidants in the drink. The good news is that you do not have to be a big coffee drinker to notice the effects, even two or three cups a day can reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
