Coffee Reduces Endometrial Cancer Risk


Further analysis of the Women's Health Initiative data has revealed that women who drink 4+ cups of coffee per day have 25% less risk of endometrial cancer than women who drink one or less. Drinking 2 or more cups of decaf per day was associated with a 22% risk reduction but the sample size was too small to have statistical significance. The strongest inverse association between coffee drinking and endometrial cancer was among obese women.
