Much has been said about what is or isn’t a carcinogen. One of the things that have often been pointed at for being a cancer developer is coffee, but recent research has shown that it’s not quite like that. Latest research shows coffee will not necessarily give you cancer, but drinking very hot beverages may trigger the disease.
Coffee has been connected with the development of breast cancer, but this isn’t the complete story. Read more about the myth in this article with “4 Breast Cancer Myths Debunked”.
But how did the idea that coffee could trigger cancer come about?
Coffee is one of the world’s most consumed beverages and its carcinogenicity was last assessed in 1991. At that time, coffee was considered “possibly carcinogenic to humans,” based on limited data from case-control studies linking coffee consumption with bladder cancer, even though there was no evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals. There was also evidence for a lack of carcinogenicity in breast and large intestine cancers.
Fortunately, for all the coffee drinkers out there, this idea is now being debunked and coffee is not considered as carcinogen factor anymore.
