Now that coffee drinking has been linked to a reduced cancer rate, are you drinking more coffee?

                                          drinking Not me...I was drinking about 4 cups a day already.

                                  Now, my health conscious DS doesn't bug me about it any more. Yay!

  • I love love love my coffee! My cafe au lait! Love it! New study says it helps with breast, head, neck and prostate cancer. Now I disagree with the breast cancer part as I drink a ton of it and had a double mastectomy 2 years ago. So who knows but I still love my coffee! :)

  • No, caffeine makes me twitchy and sleepless, so even if I wanted to it wouldn't work for me.

  • Yes, I have gone from one cup to one and one/third. Coffee makes me fly. I only have it when my husband brings it to me in bed.

  • Considering my father drinks a LOT of coffee and has bladder cancer...I don't know how much I would tend to agree with whomever said that. But, that's just one out of how many people? LOL

    Anyway, I won't be drinking any more coffee anyway. I don't like the feeling it gives me, so I drink it very rarely...only when I want it.

  • No, if I drink more coffee, it's because I'm tired.

  • I hadn't heard about the link between coffee and cancer, but my dad died last year after a long battle with cancer (oesophageal then lungs) and he used to drink HEAPS of coffee. Sounds a bit strange to me, but of course one or two people is not a good sample to make generalisations on.

  • What type of cancer has it been linked to a reduction in? I haven't heard this one yet!
