Coffee can be a Cancer Deterrent

A little bit of love for my favorite drink from http://www.nature.com.  I guess three cups of java a day isn’t a bad thing.  This analysis, although a meta-analysis, suggests that my significant coffee intake may be helpful in preventing multiple types of cancer.  There is a noted increase in lung cancer  though.

“Our meta-analysis supports an inverse association between coffee intake and oral, pharynx cancer, liver cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, endometrial cancer and melanoma and increased association for lung cancer. Besides, the linear inverse associations were observed for liver cancer, prostate cancer and endometrial cancer. However, no significant association was found with esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, rectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, renal cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, lung cancer, melanoma, and lymphoma.”
