COFFEE

2 cup/day increase in coffee consumption associated w/ 3% fewer breast cancer deaths in non-smokers

Among non-smokers, a 2 cup/day increase in coffee consumption was associated with a:

  • 3% lower risk of dying from breast cancer
  • 3% lower risk of dying from colorectal cancer
  • 8% lower risk of dying from liver cancer

during a 30-year follow-up (1982-2012).

Among smokers and former-smokers, coffee consumption was associated with an increase in cancer deaths.

The study, done by the American Cancer Society, included 922,896 Cancer Prevention Study-II participants aged 28-94 years who completed a four-page questionnaire and were cancer free at baseline in 1982.

“These findings are consistent with many other studies that suggest coffee drinking is associated with a lower risk of colorectal, liver, female breast and head and neck cancer,” the authors of the study concluded.
