Drinking Coffee Daily may Protect Men from Prostate Cancer

This time, a research team led by Kefeng Wang, a urologist at Shengkyo Hospital, Chinese Medical University, found that drinking coffee on a regular basis could reduce the risk of prostate cancer. .. Focusing on the abundance of research data on coffee and health due to the popularity of coffee, Wang et al. Focused on the 'relationship between prostate cancer and coffee drinking habits' from three databases containing papers. We extracted and scrutinized 497 documents focusing on. As a result of excluding those with duplicate contents and those that do not contain statistically useful and high-quality data, 16 papers remained in the end.

The breakdown of the regions where the study was conducted was 7 each in North America and Europe, and 2 in Japan. In addition, the total number of participants was 1,081,586, of which 57,732 were prostate cancer patients.

The research team statistically analyzed 16 papers by

meta -analysis and found that the group who drank 2-9 cups of coffee daily developed prostate cancer compared to the group who drank less than 2 cups. It turns out that the probability of doing it is 9% lower. In the group who drank coffee often, the risk of prostate cancer was reduced by 1% for each cup of coffee they drank.

In addition, when the risk of the group who drinks coffee frequently was investigated separately for each symptom of prostate cancer, the risk was 7% in the case of 'localized prostate cancer' where the cancer tissue is only in the prostate, and the cancer tissue was In the case of 'advanced prostate cancer' and 'fatal prostate cancer' that had spread to other sites, the risk was reduced by 12% and 16%, respectively.

In a paper, the research team said, 'This study suggests that increased coffee intake may be associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Further research is needed on the mechanism, but coffee. Men are encouraged to drink more coffee to reduce their risk of prostate cancer in the future if the relationship of higher intakes and lower prostate cancer incidence proves to be causal. It may be.
