Higher coffee risk linked to endometrial cancer risk: study

Washington, US January 23 ANI According to a new study, higher coffee consumption is linked to a lower endometrial cancer risk. Caffeinated coffee may provide better protection against decaffeinated coffee.

The research was published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Research.

The analysis included 24 studies on coffee intake with 9,833 new cases of endometrial cancer in 699,234 individuals.

The highest category of coffee intake had a 29 per cent lower relative risk of developing endometrial cancer than those in the lowest category.

The authors of the analysis highlighted several mechanisms that have been associated with the potential anti-cancer effects of coffee.
