Coffee and prostate Health

High coffee intake may help against prostate cancer

Cups of coffeeMNT ChoiceAcademic Journal

Consuming four or more cups of coffee a day could reduce the risk of prostate cancer recurrence and disease progression, according to a study published in the journal Cancer Causes and Control.

Researchers from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle analyzed 1, 001 prostate cancer survivors from a population-based study, aged between 35 and 74 years of age. All survivors had been diagnosed with the disease between 2002 and 2005.

The participants were asked to complete a food frequency questionnaire two years before their prostate cancer diagnosis, and were required to give information regarding their diet and beverage consumption.

The participants were also interviewed about their:

  • Demographic and lifestyle information
  • Medication use
  • Prostate cancer screening history.

The researchers ran a follow-up analysis five years after the participants' first diagnosis to find out whether the prostate cancer had recurred and/or progressed. Of the original 1, 001 participants, 630 then answered questions about their coffee intake and were included in the final results.


Researchers found coffee had an effect against recurrence or progression of prostate cancer.

Less recurrence or progression of prostate cancer

The analysis showed that of these participants, 61% consumed at least one cup of coffee a day, while 12% drank four or more cups of coffee a day.

The men who drank four or more cups of coffee a day had 59% less risk of prostate cancer recurrence and/or progression than those whose coffee consumption was just one cup a week or less.

Additionally, the researchers analyzed the link between coffee consumption and prostate cancer-specific death in 894 patients included in the original food frequency questionnaire.

Results showed that 125 men had died after the median follow-up period of 8.5 years. Of these, 38 had died specifically from prostate cancer, but daily coffee consumption was not associated with these deaths.

There was no link found between coffee consumption and reduced mortality from prostate cancer, the researchers add, although they note this study did not include enough men who died from the disease to address that as a separate issue.

Milan Geybels, a previous student at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and lead author of the study, says the results of this study differ from those of other studies looking at the same link, as the researchers used a "composite definition" of prostate cancer recurrence/progression. He adds:

"We used detailed information on follow-up prostate-specific antigen levels, use of secondary treatment for prostate cancer and data from scans and biopsies to assess occurrence of metastases and cause-specific mortality during follow up.

Using these detailed data, we could determine whether a patient had evidence of prostate cancer recurrence or progression."

The study authors add that further research is needed to determine exactly how coffee may have effects against prostate cancer. But they say biological activities linked to consumption of phytochemical compounds found in coffee can have "anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects."

Flaxseeds when ground are a minor source

by passit

Of oil but a major source of what are called lignans. Lignans have been found to prevent breast cancer and prostate cancer.
Even health food stores sell flaxseed that's ground in an airtight bag but shortly after the bag is open it's no longer a healhy food. An easy way to get the lignans is to grind the seed in a coffee grinder and add it to a blended drink that's a little thick so the flaxmeal won't all settle to the bottom.
I'm not vegan so I blend 1/2 cup of lowfat cottage cheese with a 1/4 cup of the flaxseed oil first then add 1/2 cup of flaxseed ground and 1/4 cup sesame seed ground and blend it all with homemade almond milk

Let's talk about Free Markets, Democracy, and Debt that Kills

by justyouraveragecitizen

'Debt is an efficient tool. It ensures access to other peoples' raw materials and infrastructure on the cheapest possible terms. Dozens of countries must compete for shrinking export markets and can export only a limited range of products because of Northern protectionism and their lack of cash to invest in diversification. Market saturation ensues, reducing exporters' income to a bare minimum while the North enjoys huge savings. The IMF cannot seem to understand that investing in ... [a] healthy, well-fed, literate population ... is the most intelligent economic choice a country can make.' -- Susan George, A Fate Worse Than Debt, (New York: Grove Weidenfeld, 1990), pp
