Coffee as a sun block?

Now that summer is just around the corner we are all starting to think about sunny days, but strong sunshine needs to be treated with care as rates of skin cancer are increasing around the world. But there is some good news as researchers have established a link between drinking coffee and some level of protection.  

The Italian research reviewed 18 cohort studies, which themselves looked at the efficacy of “anti-inflammatory foods and food components” on skin cancer prevention.

The studies covered 2.5 million participants and looked at fruit, vegetables, coffee, and tea among others. Of the 18 studies, coffee was considered in seven and in six was found to have a positive effect—especially if the coffee consumed was caffeinated.

It was, in fact, the only element studied that was “consistently associated with a protective effect.”
