SWEDEN: Research refutes link between coffee and colon cancer
Swedish researchers have completed a large-scale study into colon & rectal cancer and coffee, and have failed to establish any link between the two. Even drinking large amounts of coffee did not appear to increase the risk of cancer, the researchers said. They disputed as premature suggestions that coffee could help prevent cancer, however.
"For patients seeking advice about coffee consumption, the evidence suggests that moderate or even high consumption will not likely influence the risk of colorectal cancer," commented Professor Alicja Wolk, of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.
