Gentlemen your coffee habit may be helping your health
How many cups of coffee do you drink a day? 1 maybe 2, or is it closer to 3, 4, 5, or even 6 cups! Donâ€™t worry many of us here at BUNN are at the top end of that scale too! If youâ€™re a male, your coffee habit may be helping your health.
According to a recent blog post on NPR.org, a Harvard study shows that â€œdrinking at least six cups of coffee a day reduces the risk of aggressive prostate cancer by 60 percent.â€ If you donâ€™t drink that many cups of day, donâ€™t fret, because the men who drank three cups a day had a 30 percent lower chance of getting the lethal prostate cancer.
Lorelei Mucci, an author of the study and an epidemiologist at the Harvard School of Public Health, says â€œmore research is needed before urging people to drink coffee for its health benefits, but she did tell NPR, â€˜thereâ€™s no reason not to start drinking coffeeâ€™.â€
We couldnâ€™t agree more!
