️I’m a coffee lover, which has lead me to defend its reputation over and over. Here’s one of many reasons why (and I warn that I will post more about the misconceptions about coffee in the near future). For now, check out the findings in a study in the The Prostate Journal by the European Association of Urology in Barcelona.
https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190318111955.htm ——————————————————🔬Scientist found a mix of compounds in coffee, kahweol and cafestol, may inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells. They put these compounds in cancer cells in a laboratory setting, and found that they significantly slowed the growth!! Then they tested these in mice, poor little guys I know, and had successful results with the slowing of cancer proliferation. How much? Untreated tumors grew 342% more than coffee-treated tumors, that is an amazing number. ——————————————————— 🤷🏽♂️Yes, this is not tested in humans yet. But there are plenty of cancer studies out there, using coffee successfully to slow cancer spread. -
Check out these 2 just for starters: -️1. Han MA, Kim JH. Coffee Consumption and the Risk of Thyroid Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. Int J Environ Res Public Health. 2017;14(2):129. Published 2017 Jan 27. doi:10.3390/ijerph14020129
️2. Protective effects of coffee consumption following liver transplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhosis. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30811647 —————————————————-
️It is also known to DECREASE, yes decrease risk for cardiovascular disease. Check out this article: ️1. Long-term coffee consumption, caffeine metabolism genetics, and risk of cardiovascular disease: a prospective analysis of up to 347,077 individuals and 8368 cases. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30838377 ——————————————————— ️By the way, when I say coffee, I mean black unsweetened coffee, not a sweet frapuccino.
