Three cups of Italian coffee each day can help prevent prostate cancer. The EurekAlert.org page reported on a new study, which discovered Italian-blended coffee: brewing at very high temperatures and pressures and without mixing them with batteries. This reduces the risk of prostate cancer to 53% in people who drink more than 3 cups a day, according to Natural News.
This study is published in the International Journal of Cancer of Germany, from the results observed about 7,000 men in the Molise region, Italy for 4 years. In addition, the researchers tested the efficacy of caffeine-containing coffee extract and decaffeinated coffee on prostate cancer cells.
The results show that only coffee extract containing caffeine slows the growth and metastasis of cancer cells, allowing researchers to conclude that the anti-cancer properties of coffee are caffeine and not must be due to other components, according to Natural News.
The study notes that the way to prepare Italian coffee at very high temperatures and pressures and without filters, is a factor that increases the concentration of bioactive substances. That may be the reason why Italian coffee is more resistant to prostate cancer than coffee prepared by other methods.
Prostate cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related death in men, just behind lung cancer and colorectal cancer. Most people with prostate cancer are men aged 65 or older, less common in people under 40 years of age, the risk of rapid increase after 50 years of age.
The Prostate Cancer Organization (US) also recommends a healthy diet and regular exercise, limiting the intake of supplements. instead they should provide vitamins and minerals from natural foods, especially cooked tomatoes, broccoli and cauliflower (at least 2.5 cups of vegetables / day). It should be noted that maintaining a sufficient amount of calcium, not higher than necessary.
