If we have stronger immune systems, it’s more resistant to colds, viruses, bacteria, but more severe diseases such as cancer.Studies have shown that in a significant number of antioxidants is found in the coffee. However, the bad news is that scientists are still looking for the best way to isolate the antioxidants from coffee and use them in the best way. It is known that coffee is a diuretic, and it releases the water of the organism.
Coffee is also on the list of foods that fight cancer because of its high content of antioxidants. Various studies have linked coffee to a reduced risk of cancer of the liver, breast, prostate, melanoma…
Men who drank six or more cups of coffee per day had a 60 percent lower risk of developing the most deadly form of prostate cancer and 20 percent lower risk of the disease of any other prostate cancer compared to men who did not drink coffee.
