Coffee may slow the spread of colon cancer

• 4 cups a day increases the odds of survival by 36% 

New research has found that a few cups of coffee a day may help slow the deadly progression of advanced colon cancer, HealthDay News reports.

In a study involving nearly 1,200 patients, those who drank four or more cups of coffee per day had a 36% higher odds of survival.


“In most cases, metastatic colon cancer remains an incurable disease,” said study co-author Christopher McIntosh, a medical student at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Phoenix.

McIntosh noted that “a number of lifestyle factors, such as diet and exercise, have been associated with a longer life span for those dealing with the disease.”

“Our study found that patients treated with chemotherapy for metastatic colorectal cancer, and who drank coffee, experienced a longer period of time before cancer growth and before death.”

The researchers eventually found that the higher the coffee consumption, the higher the survival rate.

Dr. Andrew Chan, a professor in the departments of medicine at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, responded after reviewing the study, explaining that “coffee is known for its anti-inflammatory and tissue-sensitive properties to the effect of insulin, which helps to regulate blood sugar levels in the body. blood,” adding that “these two mechanisms may reduce the risk of cancer.”


“Currently, I would suggest that those who enjoy drinking coffee continue to do so, and I am not suggesting that those who do not drink coffee start doing so for the perceived health benefits,” McIntosh said.
