Cancer and Coffee

July 12th, 2012 by | Category: Cancer

Coffee seems to be a curb for many types of cancer. Link between coffee consumption and cancer risk are being reviewed very regularly. So the next time you make or order your latte you are doing yourself a favor in more ways than one.Initially just the opposite was considered true – that may be cancer and even moderate consumption of coffee may prove to be cancerous. But there is no scientific reason for believing that moderate consumption of coffee can increase the risk of developing cancer in any part of body.

According to the studies reviewed by researchers like Francesca Bravi, ScD of the Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche “Mario Negri” in Milan, Italy, coffee drinkers as comapred to those who do not drink coffee are 41% less likely to have been diagnosed with liver cancer. For a daily cup of coffee people drink, the odds of their being diagnosed with liver cancer are dropped by 23%, compared with those who do not ever drink coffee.

It was also reported that people who drank more than a daily cup were 55% less likely to have been diagnosed with liver cancer than those who didn’t drink any coffee. These research institutes do not think that this finding is a fluke at all. They speculate that coffee helps because it stimulates liver enzymes and the likley result is that it cuts cirrhosis and liver cancer. This research has been questioned by some and therefore being studied more closely and is still under discussion.

According to a study by Japanese scientists having three cups of coffee or more, in the day may cut the risk of colon cancer amongst women by half as compared to women who are not coffee drinkers.

The combination of exercise and coffee has also been under observation for a while now and according to the research permissible or moderate amounts of coffee and plenty of exercise could help. The `Coffee & Exercise’ combo appears to distroy pre-cancerous skin cells damaged by ultraviolet rays from the sun.

Coffee is one of the healthiest drinks after fresh water as compared to tinned juices and aerated, carbonated drinks. But it has also been linked to an increased risk of stroke, rheumatoid arthritis. In some cases it works against keeping your cholestrol in check.
There is a way and time to drink coffee. Pregnant women and mothers who are breast feeding should not drink coffee. It increases the risk of miscarriage, birth defects such as cleft palate and low birth weight. Make sure you are drinking organic coffee. Avoid sugar and milk and unbleached filter.

Though coffee is not linked to cancer it contains carcinogens and other chemicals that may trigger cancer cells.

According to research coffee is been associated with birth defects, miscarriages, inability to conceive and sluggish sperm.

Coffee reduces the calcium content in your body which can lead to Osteoporosis.

Gee I drink and eight shot latte every morning and I have a 12 year old son. So much for the sluggish sperm and the inability to conceive. As far as birth defects and miscarriages that is strictly from women that drink coffee during pregnancy. Before you start spouting (supposed) facts off why not try and so some research first. What a concept!! I think that drinking plenty of milk during your youth is probably more important. My mother hated milk and still does to this day. She has osteoporosis but yet still drinks coffee and is 76 years old and WORKS!!!

Yes, you may have a child. That doesn’t mean that your chance wasn’t decreased by your coffee habit. Learn how statistics works before you go about getting angry.

I have wondered about the relationship of cancer and coffee. I am a stage 2 cancer patient and love a cup of coffee; but recently I have researched anti-cancer diets on the web and have not found one that advocates the consumption of coffee. Most don’t mention java at all but the late Dr. Moerman whose anti-cancer diet is acknowledged to have the same % rate of cure as do radiation/chemotherapy is emphatic that coffee is to be avoided at all cost due to its acidity — the environment that cancer cells love. He ranks coffee as one of the “prohibited” products in his rating sequence behind “essential”, “good”, “allowable,” and “in small amounts.”

Avoid sugar and milk and unbleached filter.

Is this saying that you should avoid unbleached filters? I would think you would want to use a filter that hasnt been bleached (of adversely processed).

There is a book by David Servan-Schreiber who is an MD and a PhD and who also has brain cancer. He makes an arguement for why we have so much cancer now and it mainly has to do with the foods we eat and all of the processing and chemicals that go into them. If your friends Mom has a chance have her check it out. Go to the library or a book store and look at it if she doesn’t want to have to buy it.

I had colon cancer that metastisized to the liver. I used to drink coffee on a regular basis for years before I was diagnosed. So it may help some people,but obviously not everyone. One of the bad things about coffee is that it is acidic and cancer cannot live in an alkaline enviroment. There is a ton of information out there and much of it is conflicting.

With cancer being the 2 leading cause of death, I want to see it cured. I don’t know if this is completely possible, but we do have a a beginning. We can learn and educate about the signs and symptoms of cancer in order to achieve earlier diagnoses. Some cancers are curable if found early enough. This is why I yearn to teach the signs of cancer! Thank you for this sight and please continue to teach!

How about the link between drinking coffee and anxiety (stress) which is a risk factor for developing disease? Has anyone done any studies on this? People who drink a lot of coffee and run around basically vibrating all day may be at higher risk for cell turn-over. Maybe it’s not the coffee itself but the effect that the coffee has on SOME people?
