Reduce Colorectal Cancer By 50% – 1 Easy Trick For a Healthy Colon!

By on April 20, 2016
Like your coffee black, decaffeinated, or even with a bit of cream?

Well start drinking up, say University of South California researchers–doing so could prevent colorectal cancer.  According to new research reported by scientists earlier this week, drinking more than 2.5 servings of coffee daily reduced the risk of this disease by up to 50 percent.

It didn’t matter what type of coffee they consumed either, say researchers–decaffeinated and caffeinated coffee both worked just as well.

“We found that drinking coffee is associated with lower risk of colorectal cancer, and the more coffee consumed, the lower the risk,” says Stephen Gruber, M.D., Ph.D., M.P.H., senior author of the study and a director of the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center. “We were somewhat surprised to see that caffeine did not seem to matter. This indicates that caffeine alone is not responsible for coffee’s protective properties.”

Researchers initially made this discovery after studying people who previously participated in the Molecular Epidemiology of Colorectal Cancer Study, or MECC. The study, which took place in Israel, examined 5,145 people diagnosed with colorectal cancer and 4,097 people who were not, who were then quizzed about their daily coffee habits. Researchers mainly wanted to know what types of coffee they consumed, as well as how often they consumed it. They also gathered other health information that could impact their colorectal cancer risk, such as a family history of the disease, physical activity, and smoking habits.

Eventually, they discovered that coffee, regardless of its type, had the biggest impact on their risk of developing colorectal cancer. Just two servings per day reduced their risk by 26 percent, whereas drinking a half serving more–or 2.5 servings per day–nearly doubled it.

As for the reason why, researchers say it has to do with coffee’s unique–and beneficial–chemical compounds.

“The levels of beneficial compounds per serving of coffee vary depending on the bean, roast and brewing method,” says Stephanie Schmit, Ph.D., M.P.H., a researcher from the Moffitt Cancer Cancer. “The good news is that our data presents a decreased risk of colorectal cancer regardless of what flavor or form of coffee you prefer.”

Their recommendation now? Though further research is pending, current evidence points to coffee as an easy way to reduce your risk of colorectal cancer.

“I would encourage coffee lovers to revel in the strong possibility that their daily mug may lower their risk of colorectal cancer,” says Gruber.
