New Study Suggests There May Be More Benefits to Drinking Coffee Than Originally Thought

Thursday, April 09, 2015

So far, research has shown that habitual coffee drinkers may have a reduced risk of developing coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, stroke, liver cancer and dementia. Some studies suggest that coffee can even boost your long-term memory. Now, yet another study has found that regular coffee consumption may reduce your risk of malignant melanoma, the most aggressive and malignant form of skin cancer. Sounds like the perfect excuse to stop by a mobile cafe, or maybe even join the trend and open your own coffee van franchise.

The study in question was conducted in the United States by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP). Researchers culled data from 447,357 participants over a course of 10 years. According to a report published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI), the investigation found that study subjects who drank four or more cups of coffee every day were 20% less likely to develop melanoma than those who didn't drink coffee.

The research team did note that their findings are not conclusive, and recommended further study into the connection between coffee intake and melanoma. However, the scientists involved with the study were still excited by their results, as they have helped demonstrate that drinking coffee isn't a risky choice, despite earlier reports to the contrary.

For the moment, people are still advised to wear sunscreen and proper clothing as their primary method of preventing skin cancer. However, as long as you are following those healthy habits, the study suggests that drinking a few cups of coffee can only help as a secondary step. Fortunately, it seems that most people won't have a problem with the latter piece of advice: an estimated 14 billion espresso coffees are consumed around the world each year, creating a global industry worth a projected $100 billion U.S. Of that amount, $20 billion is due to exportation alone, leaving no doubt about the potential profits. If you are looking for a career that is both beneficial and profitable, this could be your chance: check out coffee van franchise opportunities in your area today!
