A group of researchers from the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden-, Friberg E, Orsini N, Mantzoros CS, Wolk A and found that coffee can reduce the risk of endometrial cancer, especially in those who consumed at least four cups of coffee a day, compared with their who drank less coffee.

Each additional number of cups of coffee drunk associated with a 10 percent reduced risk of endometrial cancer. Coffee may reduce risk of endometrial cancer expected because the coffee can reduce insulin levels and estrogen, which is associated with the development of endometrial cancer. Nevertheless, only two prospective studies that explore regarding this hypothesis.

Data derived from the Swedish Mammography Cohort, a prospective study of population-based cohort of 60.634 women who were followed for approximately 17 years, 677 were diagnosed with endometrial cancer type adenocarcinoma. After investigation regarding coffee consumption and risk of endometrial cancer, it was found that there was a significant interaction between coffee consumption and body mass index.

The data states that coffee consumption is associated with a reduced risk of endometrial cancer, especially in women with excess body weight.

Friberg suggested that similar studies should be performed using Decaffeinate or decaffeinated coffee for to separate the effects of caffeinated coffee with decaf.

Keep in mind also that caffeine is not always profitable, because too much caffeine consumption (approximately 600 mg or equivalent to 6 cups of coffee) may experience unpleasant symptoms such as palpitations, nervousness, sweating, anxiety, stomach feels uncomfortable, until difficulty sleeping.
