Diet is always an important part of reducing your risk for disease and health complications. The Busch Center team encourages the patients we’re monitoring to take care of themselves with a healthy diet. While some doctors may recommend cutting out caffeine, we don’t believe you have to eliminate your morning coffee. In fact, a new study found higher consumption of coffee is linked to lower risk for advanced prostate cancer. 

The study analyzed over 50 thousand prostate cancer cases, and supports earlier studies that also found coffee reduces the risk of different cancers, including prostate cancer. There is even evidence showing coffee drinkers already diagnosed with prostate cancer have a significantly reduced risk of recurrence or progression.

Coffee has many overall health benefits, such as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, regulation of sex hormones, and improving glucose metabolism. Learn more about this study’s finding here.
