Research conducted in Sweden suggests that women who drink lots of coffee may reduce their risk of developing a type of breast cancer, although experts are urging caution.
The Karolinska Institute’s findings are based on a study of nearly 6,000 women and suggest drinking more than five cups a day halves a woman’s risk.
However, cancer experts say the evidence is not proof enough and women should instead focus on leading a healthy lifestyle to cut their cancer odds. They say the findings need confirming.
The Swedish researchers are now doing more studies to dig deeper into the coffee question.
Their initial findings suggest that coffee reduces the risk of an aggressive form of breast cancer called oestrogen-receptor negative breast cancer.
