Three cups of coffee a day to help keep skin cancer away?
Drinking copious amounts of coffee may reduce the risk of the most common type of skin cancer, a new study finds.

Women in the study who drank more than three cups of coffee a day were 20 percent less likely to develop basal cell carcinoma, a slow-growing form of skin cancer, than those who drank less than one cup a month.

Men in the study who consumed more than three cups of coffee had a 9 percent reduction in their basal cell carcinoma risk.

Drinking coffee did not reduce the risk of melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, the study found.
