Coffee Causes Miscarriage But Prevents Ovarian Cancer

Illustration for article titled Coffee Causes Miscarriage But Prevents Ovarian Cancer

Another day, another study about caffeine. Following yesterday's news that ingesting more than 200 milligrams of caffeine a day can double the risk of miscarriage, today coffee is good for women! According to a new study, women who drink 3 or more cups of coffee a day are 20% less likely to develop ovarian cancer then their water drinking compatriots. The benefits of coffee when it comes to ovarian cancer increase even more if you have not taken the pill or had hormone replacement therapy. The drunks out there can rest easy, because the study showed no relationship between alcohol use and ovarian cancer, though depending on how much you smoke, you can be more susceptible to mucinous tumors, a rare form of ovarian cancer. And what kind of coffee are the Jezebels drinking? The results may shock you.


After a highly scientific poll we conducted on the coffee drinking habits of the Bleeding-Heart Bleeding-Sexed, Socially-Conscious Clive Owen-Worshiping Slobs out there shows that 30% of you make your own fancy-schmancy, highly caffeinated java at home. 20% of you are nancy tea drinkers, 13% of you like your Starbucks with even more juice, and 10% of you like your Starbucks the way God and the body-obsessed intended: with fake sugar.

We're still waiting on tomorrow's study that shows caffeine may cause us to grow a third eye, become a sex fiend, and eat babies. Until then we'll continue to drink enough coffee to drown a horse.

@currerbell: oy that sucks. Reminds me of two things

1) My sister in law getting offended when I offered her pregnant-ass a coffee as caffeine is bad for the baby (like I knew that at 12)... ... riiiiiiiight before she went outside to have a cigarette.

2) My husband's aunts slapping food out of my hand at a family picnic the day ebfore our wedding because "You have to fit in a wedding dress tomorrow." Because, apparently, eating a turkey-burger for lunch makes you go from a size 4 to a size 76 overnight
