Coffee Helps Lower Risk Of Breast Cancer Recurrence, Sweden Study Suggests

April 26, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Drinking coffee could help lower the risk of breast cancer recurring in patients who are taking the drug Tamoxifen, according to a study at the Lund University in Sweden. Results of the study, which focused on more than 600 breast cancer patients for five years, revealed patients who took the pill and drank two or more cups of coffee daily reported less than 50 percent of the cancer recurrence rate reported by Tamoxifen-taking patients who drank only one cup or less. Researchers are now evaluating the theory that coffee makes Tamoxifen more efficient, according to oncology doctoral student Maria Simonsson. Lund University scientists have previously linked coffee consumption to lower risk of developing certain types of breast cancer.
