Coffee Bean Chronicles - Coffee New Perks for Cancer Prevention

You have heard and read many times about how various fruits, vegetables, drinks, and exercise are good steps for prevention of cancer. I would like to pass this bit of information about coffee.
For those of you who drink 4-6 cups a day and have been told to cut down the coffee, REJOICE!!! You are on the right track for cancer prevention.
A new study of 60,000 women shows that those who drink 4 or more cups of coffee a day cut the risk for endometrial cancer by 25 percent. Not bad for the morning brew, ah!
Men benefit too, a recent research suggests a 60% drop in the risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer among those who drink 6 or more cups of coffee daily, compared with men who don't drink coffee.

Coffee has been ranked 6th. within the top 10 food with the highest antioxidant content per serving. (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition)
