Although the case for coffee and exercise playing a part in the prevention of prostate cancer has not yet fully been proven, but the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study does show a clear association with both activities.
Data on 50,000 men that participated in the study shows a common diagnosis of prostate cancer since widespread screening began 20 years ago. Of these 50,000 men 4,975 cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed according to findings from this study.
while the study found just a weak relationship between consumption of six or more cups of coffee a day and a reduced risk of all forms of prostate cancer (down about 19 percent), the reduction for the aggressive form was much more marked — 41 percent.
