Latest study on Coffee/Tea impact on PC:
Coffee and tea contain antioxidant properties that may affect one’s risk of prostate cancer. The authors of this study identified 7036 men diagnosed with prostate cancer within the EPIC study—a multi-institutional study involving 10 European counties. The risks associated with prostate cancer were evaluated by comparing individuals consuming the most coffee or tea and individuals consuming the least. There was no association found between high vs low consumption of coffee (HR, 1.02 for risk of prostate cancer; HR, 0.97 for risk of fatal disease) or tea (HR, 0.98 for risk of prostate cancer; HR, 0.89 for fatal disease).
Limitations to this study include self-reporting of coffee/tea intake as well as variation in the strength and type of coffee/tea. Nevertheless, these prospectively collected data suggest that there is no association between coffee or tea consumption and risk of prostate cancer.
