Coffee Prevents Skin Cancer



Enjoy a drink of coffee and help yourself in the prevention of getting skin cancer.

The most common type of cancer in the United States is skin cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute.

Sun damaged skin cells naturally self-destruct, but in studies with mice show that drinking caffeine increases the process by 95 percent. Additionally exercise increased the destruction by 120 percent. And lastly, tests revealed that in mice who drank caffeine and exercised the skin cell destruction was increased by 380 times those who did neither.

So a combination of two or three cups of coffee a day, with exercise, can help reduce skin cancer.
