Can Coffee Reduce the Risk of Cancer?
A new study from the American Cancer Society claims people who drink more than four cups of caffeinated coffee daily...could significantly reduce their risk of death from certain forms of cancer.
Habitual coffee drinkers had about half the risk of dying from cancers of the mouth and part of the throat. That was compared to those who never drank coffee or only had it occasionally.
Researchers studied data on almost a million people from an American Cancer Society study on cancer prevention that began in 1982.
The study found that drinking more than four cups of caffeinated coffee daily was linked to a 49% lower risk of death from oral cancer.
The study authors say more research is needed to understand the reasons why coffee has a protective effect against oral cancers.
The study was published in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

Okla. governor signs abortion bill, 20 other bills
May 24, 2013 21:20 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has signed legislation that requires abortion providers to take additional steps to notify the parents of a minor who is seeking an abortion.
The measure was among 21 bills Fallin signed into law on Friday, when the Legislature planned to adjourn its 2013 legislative session.
The bill prohibits a minor from getting an abortion until at least 48 hours after written notice has been provided to her parent or guardian, except in cases of a medical emergency. In that case, the physician must verbally inform a parent within 24 hours after the abortion and send a written notice to the parent's last known address.
The bill includes an exemption for girls who are the victims of sexual or physical abuse.
