Coffee Can Help you Against Cancer

07 October 2015

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Since 1985, this month has been dedicated to raise awareness and educate people about the disease. Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer among women. The best defense is screening and early detection. But did you know that drinking coffee could help?

According to a study executed by researchers from Lund University and Skane University Hospital in Sweden, and the University of Bristol in the UK, coffee consumption can reduce the risk of breast cancer returning and aid drugs to suppress tumors growth. They examine women with breast cancer that were treated with Tamoxifen. Tamoxifen is a medication used to treat breast cancers that are associated with the hormone estrogen.

The study concluded that women, who drank between two to five cups of coffee daily, had smaller primary tumours and a lower proportion of estrogen-dependent tumours. Those women who were treated with Tamoxifen and drank two to five cups of coffee have a 49% lower risk for breast cancer recurrence. The group of scientist also concluded that caffeine suppressed the growth of breast cancer cells. Such results are extremely encouraging, yet further research is required as it could lead to new treatments and diagnostics. Even though, many great strides have been made concerning awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished.

In honor of this month and in the spirit of breast health, Cubico Coffee wants to spread the word about the importance of early detection. We encourage every woman in America to set up a mammogram; it can save your life. Make a difference, get involved, donate and go Pink!
