In a study aimed at establishing how dietary factors might affect the likelihood of developing endometrial cancer, researchers found that drinking several cups of coffee a day might actually reduce its risk, a report by NorthJersey.com stated on March 3.
The study, which was published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, revealed through data of 3,000 women that compared to those who drank less than a cup a day, women who drank three cups of coffee a day reduced their risk of endometrial cancer by 18 to 19 percent.
The American Cancer Society stated that this year, around 54,870 women will be diagnosed with this disease. Endometrial cancer, commonly referred to as uterine cancer, has been linked to the use of power morcellators during uterine procedures, during which the device could spread undetected cancer tissues and trigger the spread of the disease.
At Williams Kherkher, we help victims of power morcellators seek the compensation they truly need by helping them file a case against the medical device manufacturer involved. To learn how we can be of help, call us at (888) 220-0640 today.
