YAY!

According to researchers having two to three cups of coffee a day reduces, or delays the risk of breast cancer depending on the gene variant a woman has.

The research was done on over 460 breast cancer patients.  Researchers found that coffee was related to the female sex hormones and that coffee alters the female metabolism so that a woman acquires a better configuration of estrogens.

Caffeine has also been found to slow the growth of cancer cells.

It is also thought to cut the risk of ovarian cancer, and if you drink six cups a day it could cut your risk for skin cancer.

You will be moving too fast for the UV's to catch you!

What do you think? Are you going to consider drinking more coffee? Are you trying to cut down as it is?
