Uterine cancer is the abnormal, or malignant growth of any cells that make up uterine tissue. The uterus is located in females, in the pelvis and is commonly called the womb. The top of the uterus is the fundus, the middle is the corpus, and the bottom is the cervix.1
Impact of coffee on uterine cancer
Scientists studied 60,000 Swedish women for 17 years. Over the 17 years, 1% of the women developed uterine cancer. These patients had an average age of 67 years old. Researchers claimed that the women who drank more than 2 cups of coffee per day had a reduced risk of uterine cancer, in comparison to the women who drank less than 2 cups of coffee per day. Each additional cup of coffee was linked to a 10% lower risk of uterine cancer.
The greatest impact of coffee’s protective benefits was seen on the overweight and obese women studied. The study reported that each additional cup of coffee helped overweight women to reduce their risk of uterine cancer by 12%. Obese women were able to decrease their risk of uterine cancer by 20%. Scientists believe that this is due to coffee affecting the sugar content, fat cells, and estrogen levels of the blood-these are believed to be risk factors for cervical cancer.2
