June 23/London/Bahrain News Agency -- Recent research stated that drinking coffee decreases the risks of head and neck cancer.
Drinking coffee at least four times a day leads to a reduction of 39 % of cancer occurrence, as published by the BBC website. The study did not provide much information on caffeine-free coffee and its role in reducing the risks of tumors, so the researchers called for further research.
On the other hand, scientists stressed that drinking large amounts of coffee could also lead to health problems. A link between coffee and reducing the risk of prostate cancer was recently proven, where another study stated that drinking five portions of coffee and tea daily will reduce brain tumors.
