Whether you take it short, long, black, with milk, with cream or de­caf, drink­ing more cof­fee can re­duce your risk of de­vel­op­ing can­cer, ac­cord­ing to a new study from the Uni­ver­sity of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia (USC). Re­searchers tracked the cof­fee-drink­ing habits of more than 9,000 peo­ple and found that the more cof­fee sub­jects drank, the less likely they were to de­velop bowel (or col­orec­tal) can­cer. This was the case even when other life­style fac­tors, such as fam­ily his­tory, diet, phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity and smok­ing were fac­tored in. Bet­ter stick the ket­tle on.
