Could coffee really be the cure? A new report published in the journal Cancer Research has found that drinking more caffeinated coffee could lower your chances of developing basal cell carcinoma, which is the most common form of skin cancer. Although it is not
as serious as melanoma, this slow-growing skin cancer can still lead to permanent damage or death
if not treated.
For the study, researchers analyzed data from the famous Nurses' Health Study on more than 112,000 people. The found that 1/4 of those studied had developed basal cell carcinoma over a 20 year period, and the more someone drank caffeinated coffee (more than two cups a day), the lower their risk of developing this form of cancer.
Caffeine seemed to be key factor as they noticed that consumption of foods like tea, cola and chocolate (which contain caffeine) also seemed to cut a person's risk. However, researchers noted that more research is needed to better understand how caffeine is linked to a lower risk.
