Coffee with caffeine will reduce your oral cancer risk?

Posted on: 26 Feb 2013

People who drink more than four cups of coffee each day are at half risk of death by getting an oral cancer than occasional coffee or non-coffee drinkers. By the latest research of the American Cancer Society (ACS) we know that:

Coffee is one of the most used beverages in the world and contains polyphenols, antioxidants and other biological active compounds that may prevent development or progression of cancers. Oral/pharyngeal is considered among the ten most common cancers in the world. Our research confirms the evidence of possible positive effect of caffeinated coffee in reducing or preventing an oral cancer of the mouth and pharynx. It will be useful if it can be researched after oral prognosis to see if the coffee consumption can lead to better prognosis afterwards.

Men are more than twice likely as woman to develop and die from oral cancer. In some previous epidemiological studies is suggested that coffee MAY reduce the chance of gaining oral cancer, so to further explore those studies researchers examined caffeinated coffee, decaffeinated coffee and tea intake on fatal oral cancer and those studies were published in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

They found out that consuming four or more cups of caffeinated coffee a day will lower the risk of getting a oral cancer by 49% rather than people who don’t drink coffee or occasional coffee users. The data also shows some improvements from decaffeinated coffee drinkers that drink more than two cups a day and about the tea drinkers and for the tea drinkers there was no improvement.

The ACS funds the creation, maintenance and updating of the Cancer Prevention Study II :

“As one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world, coffee and its effects on human health are of considerable interest,” the study concludes. “Although some health conditions will preclude the consumption of any caffeinated beverages on a regular basis, our results contribute to the body of research suggesting that there may be beneficial effects to coffee, particularly caffeinated coffee, and its daily enjoyment.”
