A cup of java with that morning workout might just help you fight skin
cancer.

According to a new study by a research team at Rutgers University, lab
mice who worked out and were fed coffee—no hint as to whether they
preferred double Latte or expresso--- lowered their incidence of
developing cancerous melanoma.  The mice who both worked out and
gulped java lowered their incidence of skin cancer by 400%.

About a million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with skin cancer each
year. That makes skin cancer the most common form of cancer in the
United States.

Coffee has been linked to lower skin cancer rates in at least three studies
since 2002. Another study by the same group at Rutgers found in 2002
that mice which were lathered with skin lotion containing caffeine had a
dramatically lower incidence of cancerous skin tumors, called "squamous
cell carcinomas". Those lathered with the caffeine lotion had 72% fewer
cancer cases.



























But The Evidence That Coffee Lowers Breast Cancer is Weak

Coffee may also help battle breast cancer. A study by Dr. Steven A. Narod
of the University of Ontario at Toronto showed that coffee contains
chemicals called phytoestrogens that reduce the chemical markers for
breast cancer.  


What was different about this study is that it focused on 1600 women
from four countries who had the highest genetic risk for developing breast
cancer. These women carry gene mutations called BRCA1 and BRCA2.

The researchers found that --- compared to women who drank no coffee
at all ---the chances of developing breast cancer among women carrying
the BRCA gene mutation was reduced when they drank coffee by 10% in
those who drank 1 to 3 cups of coffee daily, and up to 25% in those who
drank 4 to 5 cups. Those who drank 6 or more cups reduced their chances
by a whopping 69%.

All of the researchers caution that, even though coffee lowers the risk for
cancer, coffee drinkers shouldn’t assume they are bullet-proof against
cancer.

Furthermore, not all studies agree with the conclusion that coffee affects
your cancer risk. Significantly, a 2013 study led from a team led by Dr.
Gretchen Gierach of the National Cancer Institute concluded that there is
no evidence that coffee consumption lowers breast cancer risk --period.

This area is being researched more and more and, as the results come in,
we will update you here.

So, keep lathering on the sunscreen and eating a healthy diet rich in
vegetables to maximize your protection against cancer. And, though it may
be only wishful thinking that it helps your breast cancer risk, make that a
double cappuccino to go.



Update:
A Coffee Facial Lowers Your Risk of Cancer?

A study completed by Rutgers University in August 2011 has further
strengthened the case for coffee and caffeine as an ally against skin cancer.

The new study found that applying caffeine
directly to the skin lowered
the incidence of cancer in mice by 72%. In this newly-published study in
the Proceedings of the National Acacemy of Sciences, instead of inhibiting
ATR with caffeinated water, Rutgers researchers, in collaboration with
researchers from the University of Washington, genetically modified and
diminished the levels of ATR in one group of mice.

The results: the genetically modified mice developed tumors more slowly
than the unmodified mice, had 69 percent fewer tumors than regular mice
and developed four times fewer invasive tumors.

When caffeine was topically applied to the regular mice, they had 72
percent fewer squamos cell carcinomas, a form of skin cancer.

Of course, there are some reservations with this study. First of all, it is an
animal study so more research is need on humans. Second, it is only one
study so it can't be extrapolated to generally apply in all cases yet.

But, since there is no downside to using coffee as a mask (no toxicity
identified by university research or the FDA, NHS and other government
agencies), you should try using a coffee mask if you are prone to skin-
peeling or sunburns, which places you at higher risk for skin cancer. Even
if you are olive-skinned or darker, a coffee mask every now and again
might give your skin an extra boost in cancer protection.

Recipe for Coffee Skin Mask

Here is a quick recipe for a coffee facial mask (use it on your back,
stomach, arms and legs as well):


1. Cup coffee grounds

2. Cup honey

3. 2 ounces olive oil

4. 2 egg whites

5. Blend for 3 minutes or whip it vigorously until the consistency of thick
soup.



Leave on for half an hour. Rinse with lukewarm water.
