Impact of coffee on oral cancer
A new study by the American Cancer society found a link between coffee and a reduced risk of dying from oral cancer. The study was published online in the American Journal of Epidemiology, on December 10th, 2012. The results showed that people who drank more than 4 cups of coffee per day were around half as likely to die from oral cancer as those who drank little or no coffee. One theory as to why coffee helps fight cancer is that it contains antioxidants, polyphenols and other compounds that help to fight against the development or progression of cancer.2
