How drinking coffee could reduce your risk of skin cancer
Skin cancer is on the rise around the world, but did you know that drinking coffee could play a part in reducing your risk.
Studies have shown coffee’s with a lot of caffeine in them can play an important part in the body’s defences against the disease. Caffeine drinkers have lower rates of basal cell carcinoma (the most common form of skin cancer) and malignant melanoma. Various scientific reports have concluded that it is caffeine rather than many other constituent parts of the coffee drink that is at play here with the caffeine helping our bodies to identify and dispose of damaged skin cells, reducing the cancer threat.
