Based on studies led by Japanese researchers. Women who add coffee to their daily diet may reduce the risk of having uterine cancer. This was led by the Japanese ministry who monitored 54,000 women ages 40 to 69 in over 15 years.

In those years of studies they've found out that 117 women developed cancer of the uterus, Reported by the medical team. Japan's National Cancer Center researchers divided those women into 4 groups, based on how much coffee intake. It was shown that the group who take coffee more than 3 time a day has over 60% lower chances to develop uterine cancer compared to those who take coffee 2 times a week.
