Breast Cancer vs. Caffeine Study

Women can now have that cup of joe without worrying about its affect on their risk for breast cancer, that's according to the latest research.

Researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital reviewed data on over 38 thousand women. All provided their dietary history and were followed an average ten years. They found drinking coffee or other caffeinated beverages did not have a significant impact on a woman's risk for breast cancer.

Women who had benign breast disease or a specific type of tumor had a slightly higher risk for the disease, but experts say more research is needed.
