Cette boisson insoupçonnée réduit le risque de cancer de la peau !

It’s one of our everyday beverages! Over 83% of us drink it every day! But did you know that this drink has the power to prevent skin cancer? Let’s find out!

Skin cancer, a widespread disease

Every year, between 80,000 and 100,000 new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in France, according to Santé Publique France.

And the numbers are rising! Skin cancer is a disease that develops when skin cells become abnormal and multiply uncontrollably.

There are three types: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma.

Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. It appears as a dark, irregular patch on the skin, which may be asymmetrical and have irregular edges.

The miracle drink is…

Coffee! In fact, several studies have confirmed that caffeine is associated with a reduced risk of certain types of skin cancer!

Research has shown that caffeine drinkers have lower rates of basal cell carcinoma (the most common form) and melanoma (the most dangerous form).

Another study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute analyzed data from over 447,000 people and found that coffee consumption was associated with a reduced risk of basal cell carcinoma!

Surprising! Caffeine helps the body identify and eliminate damaged skin cells!

A study published in The European Journal of Epidemiology explains that drinking 3 to 5 cups a day is associated with lower mortality.

In fact, people who drink at least 3 cups a day have a 20% lower risk than those who don’t!

Nevertheless, it is important not to exceed the dose! Overdosing on caffeine can have undesirable effects!
