Drinking coffee may do more than perk you up in the morning. A new study finds it may also cut your risk of developing the most common types of skin cancer.
The study was conducted by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
Researchers followed 72,000 people for 24 years.
They found women who drank more than three cups of caffeinated coffee per day had a 20 percent lower risk of developing basal cell carcinoma.
Men who drank the same amount had a 9 percent lower risk.
