Coffee for Cancer Prevention

Researchers gathered diet information, including coffee consumption, from over 1,000 people with advanced colon cancer that could not be treated by surgery.

• Results: compared with people who drank no coffee, drinking a cup a day

– Increased overall survival by 11%

– Increased time before cancer progressed by 5%

• Results for those drinking four or more cups per day

– 36% overall increase in survival

– 22% increased rate of surviving without disease getting worse

• In this study, it didn’t make a difference if the coffee was regular or decaffeinated

• Coffee contains compounds with potent antioxidant and anti- cancer activity (polyphenols)
