Coffee Vs Bowel Cancer



Drinking coffee could be the key to boosting survival rates in bowel cancer patients according to reports. It can help those suffering from this disease, plus cut the chances of it's return. The study found that it is half as likely to return in those who drank 4/5 mugs of coffee a day.

Research from the Dana-Faber Cancer institute in Boston found that drinking 460mg of caffeine a day cut the odds of bowel cancer returning by 42%. Smaller amounts bought a smaller result. Instant coffee contains around 100mg of caffeine whilst an espresso has around 80mg.
