"We are from a situation where coffee had a very negative image of health," Dr. Rob van Dam of the Harvard School of Public Health, who has conducted studies on coffee consumption and diabetes, "said Reuters Health. However, he added, "it's not like we are promoting coffee as the new health food and asking people who do not like coffee to drink coffee for their health."
Drinking coffee can help ward off type 2 diabetes and May even help prevent certain cancers, according to experts discuss the benefits - and risks - of the beverage at a scientific meeting.
Van Dam participated in a "controversy session" on coffee at the 2007 meeting of Experimental Biology taking place in Washington, DC
Dr. Lenore Arab of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA also took part, presenting results of a review of 400 studies on coffee consumption and cancer risk.
There is evidence, noted that the Arab Beverages May protect against certain types of cancer of the colon, rectum, and liver cancer, and possibly by reducing the amount of cholesterol, bile acid and natural sterol secretion in the colon, speeding up the passage of stool through the colon (and thus cutting exposure of the lining of the intestine to potential carcinogens in food) and through other mechanisms as well.
