Coffee Can Cut The Risk of Prostate Cancer


It's official coffee can help prevent prostate cancer. A massive study of 48,000 men over 12 years by Harvard Researchers found that drinking up to six cups of coffee per day actually lowered the risk of developing prostate cancer.

But what was probably the most encouraging was the fact that coffee acted as a prevention of advanced state or the most deadly cancer. Dr. Lorelei Mucci of Harvard School of Public health said "that the study found the men who drank the most coffee had a sixty percent lower risk of developing prostate cancer during follow-up."

It is believed that the antioxidants, anti-inflammatory compounds, as well as chemicals that help control blood glucose and hormone levels found in coffee is the link to the lower risk of prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in US men with 190,000 new cases each year.

Hopefully the results of this study will encourage men to start drinking more coffee and cut their risk of developing prostate cancer.


Coffee And Ganoderma An Anti Cancer Treatment

With the results of the Harvard study on the benefits of drinking up to 6 cups of coffee a day as a prevention to prostate cancer and the 2003 study on the effects of ganoderma lucidum on advanced stage cancer, you could consume coffee with ganoderma for a double whammy effect!

In the 2003 study 34 people with advanced-stage cancer took ganoderma as a supplement three times a day for 12 weeks. This supplementation led to a significant increase in T-cells, which are known to play a crucial role in the defense of the immune system and slowed down the growth of cancer cells.

In one study, ganoderma suppressed cell adhesion and cell migration of highly invasive breast and prostate cancer cells, suggesting its potency to reduce tumor invasiveness. Ganoderma clearly demonstrates anti-cancer activity in experiments with cancer cells and has possible therapeutic potential as a dietary supplement for an alternative therapy for breast and prostate cancer.

Do you see the potential of coffee with ganoderma? There is one company that manufactures coffee with 100% certified organic ganoderma which can give you that double whammy benefit by drinking the healthiest coffee available.

Now's the time to be drinking coffee!

Interesting hub. I've been drinking a lot more coffee lately. Not quiet six cups a day. Not even every day but fairly regular. I've read before that coffee has myriad health benefits not just those concerning prostate cancer as you mention but it also effects mood, metabolism and a wealth of other things. Voting up and shared.
