He knows itCourtesy GoslineYou want a healthy, cancer-free prostate? Of course you do! Even if you're one of those people that don't have a prostate to begin with, you probably wish you had a healthy prostate!
In any case, what you should be doing is drinking a ton of coffee! Because, apparently, it may significantly reduce your risk of developing certain types of prostate cancer!

Head on over to Health News Review for a good analysis of why so much of the media got this story wrong. (Not you, John. You linked to the actual paper, which emphasizes a correlation, not causation.)

Oh, no, now you've got me wrong.

You see, I do infer direct causation whenever I observe correlation. This is why I won't go to the bathroom in the dark, why I don't sleep with candy under my pillow, why I never sing in the car, why I don't wear brown shoes on Tuesdays, why I always lick my hands clean, and why I believe snakes cause depression.

I have never heard of drinking coffee as a possible way to prevent prostate cancer. It seems like there is a new study out each day claiming that if you eat something or drink something it might prevent cancer. What were the statistics of this research? I am interested in learning more about it.
