Coffee has always been known for its benefits for the human body, especially for purification, detoxification, bringing the blood pressure to a normal level and last but not least, making people good mornings, because of the caffeine results.
More good news come today for the black, dreamy drink: four cups of coffee could reduce the risk of endometrial cancer in women, study shows. And the number of those who get it is quite worrying: 1 out of 37 women get endometrial cancer annually. Of course, the grand majority of causes are hormonal imbalances, diabetes and obesity, but what if there is something else to it? How could dietary factors determine such a risk and how can women change their lifestyle in order to protect themselves?
Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention has published a researched in its February magazine about these amazing results. 456,000 women have been tested, in two different studies that happened concomitantly. The evolution of more than 2,800 women that have endometrial cancer has been tracked and noted for future endeavors. The fact that the number of women who suffer from this kind of cancer could be smaller thanks to coffee is unbelievable. At present, there are 10,170 annual deaths in the U.S. caused by endometrial cancer. Some other causes of this tragic illness could be: total fat, monounsaturated fat, phosphorus, carbohydrates, yogurt, butter, potatoes, cheese and coffee, drank in an insufficient amount, or so it seems. These nine foods have been especially given to one of the groups of sick women, in order to determine what could they do to their health.
The percentage of women who drank less than 1 cup of coffee a day has been very small in comparison with those who drank more: 18% is the difference and for some coffee, it’s something. So, the trial had an optimistic and valuable conclusion: 7 ounces of coffee daily reduces endometrial cancer risk by 18 percent.
Dr. Melissa Merritt of Imperial College London said in news release that:
“Coffee intake is worth investigating further to see if coffee can be used for the prevention of endometrial cancer. However, before clinical recommendations can be made, further studies are needed to evaluate this question in other studies and to try to isolate the components of coffee that may be responsible for any influence on endometrial cancer.”
