More on Diet & Cancer Myths & Facts

Last week we held a chat about diet and cancer myths and facts.  We couldn’t get to all the questions, so we’ll be addressing them on the blog over the next few weeks.  Here’s one of those questions:

Does Caffeine Cause Cancer?

No, current evidence shows that caffeine does not increase cancer risk.  AICR’s expert report found it unlikely that coffee has any effect on the risk of pancreatic or kidney cancer – the two cancers for which there was enough data to make a conclusion.  Stay tuned – AICR will be featuring the latest information on caffeine and cancer in the upcoming issue of AICR’s ScienceNow.

We’ll continue to feature more questions, but if you have one, put it in the comments section and we’ll get to it.
