Good news, java junkies: Researchers have found the more coffee you drink; the more you may be protecting yourself against skin cancer.
We all know how important it is to protect yourself against the sun’s harmful rays, and according to research published recently in the journal Cancer Research, people who drink 3 cups of coffee per day have 17% less risk of developing basal cell carcinoma (the most common form of skin cancer). Specifically, men experienced a 13% drop in risk, while women had an 18% drop. Investigators found the more someone drank caffeinated coffee, (more than two cups a day) the lower their risk of developing this form of cancer.
Scientists noted caffeine seemed to be key factor, because tea, cola and chocolate, all of which contain caffeine also seemed to cut a person’s risk.
What’s better known are the benefits of drinking coffee brewed with roasted beans. Recent studies suggest that besides cutting your risk of this deadly form of skin cancer, it may help ward off Alzheimer’s disease, Type-2 diabetes, heart failure, and even help us live longer.
I have personally found that by taking one 800 mg green coffee bean extract capsule twice a day, my energy level has increased and stabilized, I have lossed weight, and now have learned that I am decreasing my chances of skin cancer. The Green Coffee Bean craze has legs!
All my best,
Stay focused and never give up!
