Coffee Prevents Skin Cancer

We have always known about the weaknesses of coffee. Still many of us are addicted to coffee. We cannot even get out of our bed until we get our refreshing cup of coffee. Then to start our work we again need an uplifting cup of coffee. Then to just relax after our tiring work we need energizing cup of coffee.

Do you even know that if you are drinking this much coffee you are keeping yourself away from skin cancer? Shocking but true. This has been proved by many doctors and scientists that coffee is a tip to prevent skin cancer. Coffee reduces basal cell carcinoma. BCC is a skin cancer. In America due to sunlight BCC is increasing. Not in only America in number of countries people are facing BCC problem.

Many experiments were done and it was seen that people who drank coffee were less victims of skin cancer. The more a person drinks coffee the less are the chances that they will get skin cancer.  In a study it was seen that men who drank coffee in them it was 9% less chances to become the prey of skin cancer and women who drink coffee they are 20% less likely to get skin cancer.

Coffee is only useful in BCC. It was seen that in other skin cancers like squamous cell carcinomacoffee wasn’t that useful. But it’s good to know that 70% of skin cancers are BCC. Before getting addicted to coffee it is worth knowing that coffee companies themselves quoted that there are many other useful ways to prevent skin cancer then sipping coffee whole day. Nghiem who has been the part of Conney experimented skin cancer and coffee on mice.

He concluded that coffee can be used to prevent skin cancer as coffee kills number of precancerous cells which a person gets from being exposed to sunlight. These are the cells which should be eliminated before they divide and become skin cancer. He also quoted that sipping coffee will be more useful on the day you have planned to go to beach. Beach is the place where you are fully exposed to direct sunlight.

Nghiem is experimenting basically on a relationship of coffee sunlight and getting skin cancer. So it will be irrelevant to ask about drinking coffee on a rainy and gray day. They are also looking forward of making coffee part of sun crèmes to avoid skin cancer.

Everything has some positive aspects connected to them. We all know that take in of large amount of caffeine through coffee is not good for health. But did u know that it saved you from skin cancer too?
