Consumption of three or more cups of espresso-style coffee per day may reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men, according to the findings of a recent Italian study.

The study, which was led by Licia Iacoviello, head of the Molecular and Nutritional Epidemiology Laboratory at the Neuromed Institute in Pozzilli, Italy, examined 7000 Italian men.

It found that those who consumed a moderate daily amount of espresso had a 53 per cent smaller chance of developing the cancer.

Prostate cancer is the most common form of the illness for men.

Researchers also found during laboratory testing that caffeine significantly reduced the proliferation of cancer cells, as well as hampering their ability to metastasise.
