They’re wrong. Again.

Health “experts” say this drink is bad for you. But we uncovered more evidence to the contrary…

Drinking four or more cups of this a day can cut your risk of oral cancer in half. And if you smoke or ever did, you’ll really want to pay close attention because you’re at the most risk.

Using data from the Cancer Prevention Study II, researchers analyzed almost a million people.1 At the start of the study, none had cancer. And after 26 years the people who drank four to six cups of this popular beverage every day reduced their risk of dying from cancers of the mouth and upper throat by 49 percent.

A review published by the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention confirms the results.2 Using data from nine studies, researchers found a 39 percent reduced risk of oral and throat cancer among the people who indulged in this drink.

When brewing your own coffee, steer clear of plastic or permanent filters. Many of them contain harmful chemicals. Always use paper filters when brewing. They remove a substance that can cause an increase in LDL cholesterol.

It is the number one source of antioxidants in the U.S. diet.3 And now you can enjoy it without any guilt…

We’re talking about coffee, of course.

Coffee is one of the most popular beverages in the world. It contains one specific antioxidant called polyphenol. Polyphenols combat toxic free radicals. They also affect key enzymes that improve cellular communication.4 Poor cell signaling can lead to cancer, diabetes, and more.

But coffee’s cancer fighting powers don’t end there…

It has over 1,000 biologically active compounds. They all work together to help fight off the progression of cancer. Two main ones—cafestol and kahweol—are especially effective.5 They help protect against oxidative DNA damage. They also increase cellular activity. And at the same time they induce cell suicide while stopping the spreading of cancerous cells.6

We aren’t suggesting you load up on coffee. Four cups seems like a bit much to us. But coffee does have an array of health benefits. It can prevent other types of cancer, too, including skin.7 And it adds years to your life.8

If you want to get the most out of your coffee, drink it black. Don’t load it up with sugar and other harmful ingredients.
