The more that scientists study coffee, the better the beverage seems to be. A study by the American Cancer Society shows that people who drink four or more cups of coffee daily may cut their risk of death from oral/pharyngeal cancer by about half.
The researchers examined associations of caffeinated coffee, decaffeinated coffee and tea intake with fatal oral/pharyngeal cancer in the Cancer Prevention Study II, a study begun in 1982 by the American Cancer Society.
Among 968,432 men and women who were cancer-free at the start of the research, 868 deaths due to oral/pharyngeal cancer occurred during 26 years of follow-up.
The researchers found consuming more than four cups of caffeinated coffee per day was associated with a 49 percent lower risk of oral/pharyngeal cancer death relative to people who never drank coffee. No association was found for tea drinking.
