Some of us don’t need another reason to drink coffee, some of us may dislike the taste of coffee – regardless there has been another study published with another benefit of coffee.

July 1, there was a study published in the Cancer Reasearch journal that suggests drinking caffeinated coffee could lower the chances of developing basal cell carcinoma – the most common form of skin cancer.

The study had found that women who drank more than three cups of caffeinated coffee were less likely to develop the disease than women who drank less than one cup per month by 21%. With men, the risk re-education was 10%. The study also found that caffeinated tea, cola and chocolate appears to reduce the risk as well.

While this is an interesting study, it’s important to note that this will not prevent skin cancer. It’s still necessary to apply the appropriate sunscreen with SPF and apply it regularly throughout the day.
