Coffee May Protect Against Endometrial Cancer


Coffee had been reported to lower levels of estrogen and insulin, two hormones implicated in the genesis of endometrial cancer, but since data on this link is limited, the researchers of this newly published study aimed to see if there is a connection.

The researchers assessed coffee consumption in relation to endometrial cancer risk in the Nurses' Health Study (NHS) with 67,470 female participants aged 34 to 59 in 1980. Cumulative average coffee intake was calculated with all available questionnaires to assess long-term effects. 

What they found was that less than 4 cups of coffee per day were not associated with endometrial cancer risk. However, women who consumed 4 or more cups of coffee had 25% lower risk of endometrial cancer than those who consumed less than 1 cup per day.

Tea consumption was not associated with endometrial cancer risk

I have covered a number of recent studies that has linked coffee consumption to health benefits. Here's some more reading/review for you...
