More Coffee, Longer Survival? Study Highlights Benefit In Metastatic Colon Cancer


Higher levels of coffee drinking by patients with advanced or metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) was linked with both overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS), according to a study published in JAMA Oncology.

The study analyzed 1171 patients and found that those who drank 4 or more cups of coffee a day had the best survival odds as well as slower disease progression.

The research looked at both caffeinated coffee and decaf; when analyzed apart, the association with PFS was stronger with caffeinated coffee, but both types were linked to OS.
