A new study shows coffee can reduce the risk of skin cancer. The research induces that people
drinking at least three coffees a day present 20% less risk of developing a skin cancer.
The study was lead on 113,000 people who all drink three or more cups of coffee a day. Basal
cell carcinoma was 20% less among this population in comparison to people who did not
drink any coffee at all.
One hypothesis is that caffeine eliminates damaged skin cells. The harmful cells are
destroyed and drained out of the body, and they cannot develop into cancer.
However, excessive coffee consumption can present a danger to one’s health.
It is rather advised to naturally expose one’s skin to unfiltered sunlight for up to half an hour
Nonetheless, since caffeine increase the odd against skin cancer, it is possible to see more and
more sunscreens containing caffeine.
