Moderate coffee consumption has been linked to a potential reduction in the risk of certain types of cancer, including liver cancer and colorectal cancer, possibly due to its antioxidant properties and anti-inflammatory effects. However, individual responses to coffee can vary, and excessive consumption or adding high-calorie additives like sugar and cream can negate potential health benefits and have other health consequences, so moderation is key.
Antioxidant Properties: Coffee is a rich source of antioxidants, such as chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid. These compounds help neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress in the body, which is a contributing factor to cancer development.
Potential Protective Effects: Some studies have suggested that moderate coffee consumption may be associated with a reduced risk of specific types of cancer, such as liver cancer and colorectal cancer. The exact mechanisms are not fully understood, but coffee may have a protective effect against cancer through its impact on inflammation, insulin sensitivity, and liver health.
Polyphenols and Bioactive Compounds: Coffee contains various bioactive compounds, including polyphenols, which have anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties. These compounds may inhibit the growth of cancer cells and reduce the risk of cancer development.

Research: Obviously, food choices and diet are critical to a healthy everyday life, and even more so when fighting cancer at any stage. Now, after a decade of cancer-specific nutrition research and our own FightBack Foods® products development, we are more convinced than ever that intentional nutrition is imperative for any cancer battle. Importantly, our research over the past decade drove us to appreciate more than ever that naturally occurring nutrients found in a variety of foods, can greatly assist in the battle against cancer.
Thus, we have attached primarily PUBMED sourced information about each ingredient used in our first product - FightBack Foods® Bites, and some of the relevant research that rationalizes each one’s use in our products. Even if you don’t buy our bites, please see the many benefits associated with each ingredient we use, and perhaps find some way to incorporate them into a daily diet with relevant nutrients necessary to assist in anyone’s fight against cancer.
PUBMED: PubMed is a free search engine accessing primarily the MEDLINE database of references and abstracts on life sciences and biomedical topics.
