CAN COFFEE CONSUMPTION DECREASE THE RISK OF CUTANEOUS MELANOMA?

Recent research published in the European Journal of Nutrition suggests that the consumption of coffee, both caffeinated and decaffeinated may reduce the risk of cutaneous melanoma.

Twelve studies involving 832,956 participants for total coffee consumption were involved.  Five studies involved 717,151 participants for caffeinated coffee consumption and 6 studies involved 718,231 participants for decaffeinated coffee consumption were included.

Analysis suggested cutaneous melanoma risk decreased by 3% – 4% for every 1 cup/day increment of total coffee consumption.
