Caffeinated Coffee Prevents Recurrence Of Colon Cancer

August 21, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Colon cancer patients who have had surgery and chemotherapy can decrease the chances of a recurrence of the disease by drinking at least four cups of caffeinated coffee a day, U.S. researchers report. Coffee drinking patients with stage 3 colon cancer were 42 percent less likely to have their cancer return than non-coffee drinkers, and were 33 percent less likely to die from cancer or any other cause. The researchers hesitated, however, to advise non-coffee drinkers to start drinking coffee unless they meet with their doctors.
