Coffee drinkers vindicated!

The prostate cancer study by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute was the largest of its kind and involved 48,000 men. Those who drank one to three cups a day had a 30 percent lower risk of developing lethal prostate cancer tumors; the men who drank drinking six or more cups a day had a 60 percent lower risk.

For the women in the Karolinksa Institutet study, drinking five cups of coffee a day was linked to a 20% decrease in overall breast cancer risk, after adjusting for participants' ages. There was a much stronger reduction in risk—57%—for a very aggressive type of breast cancer called estrogen-receptive negative cancers.

I've somewhat guiltily downed increasing amounts of caffeine as my medical education and then employment has gone on. Seems it may not kill me any faster.
