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

From: ajmc.com

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.
