In today’s email, P.D. Mangan says not to worry:
“…does coffee consumption cause cancer?
The evidence says that it does not. In fact, coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of many cancers.
Coffee consumption is associated with a modestly lower risk of many cancers, and no increased risk of any cancer. (Study here.)
Coffee consumption at 2 cups a day is associated with about a 30% lower risk of liver cancer, and a 44% decreased risk of liver cancer in people with liver disease. (Study here.)
And coffee is associated with a lower all-cause death rate.”
Not drinking coffee is also associated with writing significantly less words per day. Also, most scientific research is bunk.
According to my nose coffee is bad for me, and I trust my nose, that’s all I need to nose.
I did read this today that was interesting:
“Spanish epidemiologists and geologists have found associations between esophageal cancer and soils where lead is abundant, lung cancer and terrains with increased copper content, brain tumor with areas rich in arsenic, and bladder cancer with high cadmium levels.” https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2018-04/f-sf-asl042018.php
Foods highest in Copper http://nutritiondata.self.com/foods-000125000000000000000-1.html
Number 13. Coffee, brewed, espresso, restaurant-prepared, decaffeinated
The only foods ahead of it were meats, and most people have multiple coffees a day to keep up their word count, which would add up in copper content to be number one. Food for thought.
Unlucky for some number 13? ;^)
I might have to get better filters on the coffee machine!
2 cups maybe but if more than 2 cups a day then that’s where the health issues might appear. Excessive is not always good.
