Sunscreen in your coffee?
A new study published in Cancer Research suggests that drinking caffeinated coffee could help lower your risk of developing basal cell carcinoma, which is the most common form of skin cancer.
Researchers observed an inverse association between coffee consumption and risk of basal cell carcinoma. An association was also found between intake of caffeine from all dietary sources – including coffee, tea, cola and chocolate – and risk of basal cell skin cancer, but not with decaffeinated coffee. And not with other forms of skin cancer.Caffeinated coffee, however, has also been linked with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes and Parkinson's disease.
While researchers noted the association, they wouldn’t recommend increasing coffee intake based solely on data from the new study. As in all things, moderation is key!
