An amount of four cups of coffee per day, could eliminate the risk factors of developing endometrial cancer, study shows.
Apart from helping us wake up every morning and boosting our body to function along the day, and leaving aside its antioxidant properties, coffee might turn up to be containing a miraculous ingredient that could save the life of many women. A recent study has shown that consuming large quantities of coffee every day, could lower the risk of endometrial cancer.
The research involved the evaluation of 84 foods and nutrients an their possible link to endometrial cancer. A team of scientists from the Imperial College from London, chose nine foods from the big list: 100% fat, menstruate fat, phosphorus, butter, carbohydrates, cheese, yogurt, coffee and potatoes which have been singled out during previous researches. They chose to focus on the benefits of coffee.
Previous studies results showed that women who were drinking three cups of coffee every day had lower risks of developing endometrial cancer with 19%, compared to those who were drinking one cup of coffee every day. However, the ones who had a habit of drinking up to four cups of coffee a day, had reduced chances of developing endometrial cancer with 18% compared to the ones that didn’t drink coffee at all. Melissa A.Merritt, a researcher in cancer epidemiology at the Imperial College London, stated that they managed to confirm analysis done in previous studies that associated intake of coffee with reduced chances of endometrial cancer.
Moreover, the research also revealed that 100% fat, phosphorus and monounsaturated fat reduced the risk of endometrial cancer, while butter and carbohydrates increased the risk.
Since the results of the study, proved to be positive for more coffee consumption, would researchers advise women to drink more coffee per day? Should those who drink one cup a day increase their coffee intake and those who don’t drink coffee at all, should start drinking, as a method of avoiding endometrial cancer?
Even though the study showed that caffeine proved to be an excellent substance in preventing endometrial cancer, researchers believe that further studies are needed to clearly establish the relationship between coffee and this type of cancer. Scientists haven’t mentioned what was the exact substance contained by coffee that made the effects possible.
