Scientists have taken a step towards creating a cure for prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer is considered one of the main causes.death of men, after heart disease, lung cancer and melanoma. According to the World Health Organization, by the age of 65-70, every fourth man faces this terrible disease. The likelihood of a successful cure depends on how quickly the problem is found, so scientists are developing both early diagnosis technologies and ways to stop the growth of cancer cells. It turned out that the healing elements are even in coffee, and they very effectively cope with the disease.

For the first time, scientists have noticed the healing properties of coffee.when studying statistics about men: it was found that coffee lovers are faced with prostate cancer at 11% less. Highlighting the six main components of coffee, they began to combine them with each other and see how they affect tumors. First, experiments were carried out in test tubes, and then - in mice. As expected, cell growth slowed, and almost doubled.

The most active substances in coffee that destroycancer cells turned out to be cafestol and caveolae. How exactly they work, scientists do not yet know, but intend to reveal the algorithm in the near future. It is believed that drugs based on them can be more effective than chemotherapy.

Head of research Atsushi Mizokami noted that the discovery does not mean that men need to drink coffee more often. With all its beneficial qualities, it also has a negative effect on the body.
