A recent study measured the consumption of coffee with the risk of developing breast cancer, reports ScienceCentric.com
In the study, women who drank Scandinavian boiled coffee more than four times a day, compared to women who drank less than one cup a day, have a lower risk of developing the disease.
Researchers compared filtered coffee with boiled coffee, which was the first time brewing techniques were shown to affect different risk patterns, the news source reports.
For women who drank filtered coffee more than four times a day, researchers found there was an increased risk in developing breast cancer compared to the decreased risk for those who drank the boiled coffee.
Researchers do acknowledge that more tests need to be conducted since this study was the first in the world to take two different brewing techniques for coffee and compare them in regards to the development of cancer.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends consulting your primary care physician about proper diet and exercise regiments that may help in lowering your risk of developing breast cancer.
