Coffee Reduces The Risk for Ovarian Cancer

Who loves to drink coffee? Well, almost all loves to drink coffee. Here’s latest news I got as I was surfing the net. This is especially good news to women who loves to drink coffee.

According to US researchers, caffeine lowered a woman’s chances of developing ovarian cancer. The risk is even less for women who do not take contraceptive pills or do not use hormone replacement therapy. Among women who had never taken the contraceptive pill, coffee drinking cut the risk of ovarian cancer by 35 percent. And for those who had not had hormone replacement therapy, the risk was 43 percent less.

Risk also appeared to decline the more total caffeine and coffee a woman consumed, the study found. Decaffeinated coffee had no apparent benefit. But the reasons behind the study is still not clear and further study and research is still being carried out.

Weighing the effect of coffee on its advantage and disadvantage, like the negative effects of coffee; increased heart rate and blood pressure and irregular heart beat as to the positive effects of coffee like it lowers the risk of diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and its acts as an antioxidant. The irregularities in the vital signs could be back into normal when the caffeine subsides.

But remember to take coffee in moderation. Cheers!!!
