A latest finding in US suggests that drinking a cup of coffee daily might reduce the risk of developing skin cancer. This study was started in 1990 and investigated 77,000 white postmenopausal women in the US.
These women provided lot of information about themselves like how much coffee or tea they drink and whether they had ever been diagnosed with non-melanoma skin cancer.
The study recorded many factors about the investigating women like their age, BMI, smoking habit and whether they live in a sunny area.
The researchers found that a daily cup of caffeinated coffee was connected with a five percent drop in the women's odds of reporting non-melanoma skin cancer, reported the online edition of health magazine WebMD. Women who drank six cups of caffeinated coffee per day were 30 per cent less likely than other women to report non-melanoma skin cancer, the researchers said.
