Exploring Links Between Food/Beverages and Prostate Cancer

Posted on: July 11th, 2011

According to a study out of the Harvard School of Public Health, drinking one to three cups of coffee has been linked to a 30% lower risk of lethal prostate cancer reported the Wall Street Journal last month.

As the article states, “Links between health outcomes and food are notoriously hard to pin down; yesterday’s findings are often eclipsed by tomorrow’s.”

While CPC and our research foundation are always reviewing and generating new studies, we advise patients to look at reliable factors like family history, age, and lifestyle choices to determine their risks of prostate cancer. Getting regular PSA tests and maintaining good diet and exercise are some of the best limiting factors against prostate cancer.
