On Coffee and Prostate Cancer: Dr. Tauseef Ahmed M.D. FACP

The debate about the relationship between caffeine intake and different cancers has been fluctuating all over the radar screen. One year it looks better, and we should all be drinking more coffee, the next year it doesn't.

Is there a linkage between prostate cancer and caffeine? When we take large quantities of anything, there can be beneficial effects and dangerous effects.

Take a look at tobacco, which I consider a drug.  For years smoking cigarettes was considered a healthy thing to do. Even your doctor would recommend smoking Camels.

Then in 1950, Dr. Ernst Wynde, founder of the American Health Foundation, published his article in the Journal of the American Medical Association implicating cancer to cigarette smoking. And now we accept the link between lung cancer and smoking as undeniably true.

Medicine is always evolving – so part of the problem can be summed up in the adage:  Half the things we know to be true in medicine are wrong.
