Drinking Organic Coffee Reduces Prostate Cancer Risk
Recently released research reveals that drinking organic coffee reduces prostate cancer risk. In a just published study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute shows that 47,911 men were followed from 1986 to 2006. During that time 5,035 developed prostate cancer including 642 cases of lethal prostate cancer, fatal or metastatic. Researchers compared men who drank six or more cups of coffee a day to those who did not drink coffee.
The incidence of total prostate cancers per 100,000 person-years was 425 for the six a day coffee drinkers and 519 for those who did not drink coffee. The comparison for lethal cancers per 100,000 person years was 34 to 79. This study noted that the data applies to all coffee, including decaf. Thus drinking organic coffee reduces prostate cancer. Those drinking six or more cups a day had a nearly twenty percent reduction in risk of getting any form of prostate cancer. The same coffee drinkers had a 57% reduction in their risk of developing a lethal prostate cancer! Prior to seeing the results researchers believed that drinking coffee in general and drinking organic coffee reduces prostate cancer risk.
This assumption was based on the fact that coffee contains caffeine as well as phenolic acids, the scientific term for organic coffee antioxidants.
The antioxidants in healthy organic coffee include trigonelline which produces methylpyridium during the roasting process. This antioxidant raises body levels of phase II enzymes which in turn are known to protect the body against developing colon cancer. Other health advantages of drinking organic coffee include the purity of organic coffee. Organic coffee growers use sustainable practices in growing coffee and must refrain from the use of herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides in caring for their coffee crop. This diligence results the pure cup of steaming, aromatic organic coffee on your breakfast table.
As you add you add a touch of organic sugar to your organic coffee the thought may cross your mind that sugar might not be good for you and could be related to diabetes. However, you can then remind yourself that organic coffee is known to reduce the risk of Type II diabetes. The details are that in a scientific study, women who drank four or more cups of coffee a day had roughly half the incidence of type II diabetes when followed over several years. Considering that the incidence of Type II diabetes in the USA is over 20 million people that is a good argument for organic coffee, even before the aroma.
Thus, more organic coffee can lead to less diabetes.
So, organic coffee can help reduce your risk of diabetes and more organic coffee can lead to less colon cancer. Why else should I drink organic coffee? Organic coffee is not only good for you it is good for the environment.
