Coffee links to lower risk of cancer and early death says new analysis

That daily cup – or more – of coffee may boost your health by reducing your risk of several types of cancer, heart disease and even early death, says a new review of the evidence. This matters because even a small benefit from coffee could significantly impact Americans’ health with over 60% of US adults drinking coffee daily, according to a National Coffee Association survey.

AICR’s research shows that drinking coffee reduces risk for endometrial and liver cancer. Coffee contains a variety of compounds that can block carcinogens, reduce cancer cell growth and promote cancer cell death.

In the study published last month in the British Medical Journal, researchers conducted an umbrella review that included 201 meta-analyses looking at coffee’s effect on several health outcomes in different populations around the world. Health outcomes included cancer, cardiovascular disease, and early death from all causes.  Read more… “Coffee links to lower risk of cancer and early death says new analysis”

    New study – higher weight links to earlier death

    By Posted on 1 Comment on New study – higher weight links to earlier death

    There’s been some controversy about whether being overweight, but not obese, might actually link to a longer life. A few years ago a major study suggested that paradox. We wrote about it here.

    For lower cancer risk, healthy weight is key. AICR’s reports find that overweight and obesity increase risk for 11 cancers, including colorectal and postmenopausal breast.

    In this new analysis on weight and mortality, researchers used a person’s highest weight during the study and found that those who were overweight or obese had increased risk for early death. The data comes from 225,000 participants in the Nurses Health Studies (NHS I and II) and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (HPFS). It was published last week in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

      Eat More Fruits, Vegetables, Lower the Risk of Dying from Cancer, Other Diseases Study Finds

      Five fruits and veggies a day are good, ten might be better. At least when it comes living longer, and not dying from cancer, heart disease and stroke, according to a new study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.

      If everyone were to eat 10 fruits and vegetables a day, that could prevent an estimated 7.8 million premature deaths worldwide, the authors calculate.

      This study was an analysis of the global research, including 95 studies and over 2 million people. Read more… “Eat More Fruits, Vegetables, Lower the Risk of Dying from Cancer, Other Diseases Study Finds”
