New research findings published in the Annals of Oncology suggest that heavy coffee drinkers are less likely to develop cancerous tumors than those who drink none at all.
Scientists at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, followed nearly 45,000 men aged 45-79 over a 12-year period to see how many developed localized, advanced or fatal prostate cancer.
They found that men drinking six cups or more a day were 19 percent less like to fall victim to localized prostate cancer.
