Do you know that coffee consumption can really help men to reduce the risk of prostate cancer? Today the US population drinks 400 million cups of coffee every day. Years passed and thousands of different studies were done examining coffee’s influence on health. Overall, many consider coffee is harmful but it turned out that it is healthful. A lot of good comes when drinking it. It was discovered that coffee can boost mood, stop headaches and also precludes cavities. The studies were made at the Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research conference that was conducted in Houston. The researches show that those men who consume coffee regularly have a great benefit – the risk of developing prostate cancer is low. Coffee-drinking habits of 50 000 men from 1986 to 2006 were the important data accumulated for the research. The final test revealed a clear correlation between the amount of consumed coffee and prostate cancer risk. The men who were consuming six or more cups every day had much less chance to have prostate cancer.
There are important factors that play a significant role in prostate cancer. For example, coffee effects on glucose metabolism and insulin and also sex hormone levels. Anyway studies in this sphere should not be stopped as there should be the firm conclusions concerning this kind of cancer before the world will learn about its particularities and possibilities of changing the general situation in the world. In fact it is still very early to recommend men increase coffee drinking, but for sure, there is no reason at all to stop coffee consumption.
Another important research was performed in order to find out how physical activity influences on prostate cancer. It showed that such physical activities as biking, swimming, tennis or jogging for about three hours per week could minimize the death rate on 35 percents. Men should also walk more than 20 minutes per week. Perhaps some additional studies could help people to live longer and take better care of their health.
