The Good Cup Keeps on Giving: Coffee May Cut Your Risk of Colon Cancer

Posted by

Good news! We’ve just found another reason to justify your regular coffee intake.

This week, a new study suggesting that drinking coffee may cut your risk of colon cancer by 50 percent was released! As we’ve mentioned in a previous post, coffee has many benefits including that it’s full of antioxidants. According to Gad Rennert, the director of Clalit National Israeli Cancer Control Center, the “protective effect” derived from your cup of joe is not necessarily sourced from the caffeine but rather from the antioxidants contained in coffee. Which means caffeine-lovers and decaf-ers alike are reaping the benefits.

Rennert’s study collected data on men and women diagnosed with colon cancer and then compared their findings to data on men and women without a history of colon cancer; the study factored in their coffee intake and several measures of physical health. Findings suggest that those who drank more than 2.5 cups, reduced their risk for colon cancer by as much as 50 percent!

"For years, we were not sure if coffee was dangerous. Today, we have evidence that that's not the case, that actually coffee is good for you," Rennert said.

We’ve known it all along! So after reading this study, which only further supports the everlasting benefits of coffee, who needs a refill for their Café Valet machine?

Coffee Isn't Just for Mornings

Recently, I’ve been thinking back on when my kids were born at the hospital. Lots of nurses and doctors worked overnight to take care of us. They needed coffee to deliver my kids and care for us.
