Coffee helps prevent prostate cancer

If you haven't heard, then check out the article covering the study:

So why is this a post and not a cool Stumbledupon link at the side of my blog?

Because, accd. to the article, "drinking six or more cups of coffee per day can lower a man's risk of fatal prostate cancer by up to 60 percent."

Sure, it's just an association. I'm no sucker for correlations.

But I like coffee anyways, so I'm at least going to psych myself into thinking this works (for a combined coffee + quasi-placebo effect).

Thank you, coffee.

And finally, Word of Wisdom correlated to prostate cancer? just saying.

That is all.

(Also, now that I have time, I'll get started on the NT challenge soon. But not too soon, because vacation is coming up. And I'm suffering from what I call Agnostic Apathy, though I'm still really interested in breaking down the BoM into separate parts through a program and etc.)


  1. Never heard that one before. But I'd be worried about the adverse effects of ingesting that much caffeine every day.

  2. No joke. I know a few people who do that, but I see myself in the category of people who drink just three cups instead (and at least get a 30% less chance).

  3. Just remember, it was something else in the coffee that produced this effect, NOT the caffeine. They found that drinking decaf gave the same benefits as normal.
