Take heart coffee drinkers. There may be some added health benefits to that morning cup of coffee.
Researchers at Harvard University discovered men who drink six cups of coffee a day reduced their risk of developing prostate cancer by 60 percent.
The 12-year study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute on Wednesday watched the coffee drinking habits of more than 45,000 men.
At the same time, a new Swedish study shows women who drink five cups a day lower their risk of developing an especially aggressive form of breast cancer.
Both studies suggest coffee contains hundreds of potent antioxidants. Scientists said that more research would be needed to isolate which components of coffee might be responsible.
But there are still downsides to drinking too much. Coffee still causes jitters, heart palpitations, and insomnia in some people.
