The benefits of coffee in the fight against cancer denied by a study

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Researchers at an Australian institute concluded that regular coffee consumption did not ultimately affect the risk of developing cancer, as previously thought.

Contrary to popular belief, daily coffee consumption has no effect on the risk of being diagnosed with cancer , say scientists at QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute in Australia.

Their findings, published in the journal International Journal of Epidemiology, are based on data analysis of 46,000 people who have suffered from cancer, of which 7,000 have died from this disease.

According to the principal investigator, Jue-Sheng Ong, although there are studies that suggest that lovers of the small black tight are less willing to develop colorectal cancer, there is however data that show that people with a genetic predisposition to love this drink incurs a higher risk of suffering from this disease.

It is this divergence that has led scientists to conduct new research in this area, which has shown that the propensity to drink coffee is neither a risk factor nor a means of protection against cancer.

Coffee addiction inscribed in your genes

In 2014, a group of researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health examined the DNA of more than 120,000 people before concluding that sensitivity to coffee, as well as other caffeinated drinks , was partly genetic.

They found six new genetic variants that influence the rate at which coffee is metabolized. In people genetically programmed for this, caffeine remains less in the body.
