We love drinking single serve coffee, and according to a new metastudy, coffee might help lower the risk of head and neck cancer. The study, conducted by Mia Hashibe of the University of Utah, cross-referenced data from nine studies of head and neck cancers with the coffee-consumption patterns of subjects in the studies. The results:

"Her analysis showed that people who drank more than four cups of coffee a day had a 39% decreased risk of cancers of the oral cavity and pharynx combined, compared with those who didn't drink coffee.

The study doesn't point to a specific ingredient in coffee as being helpful, but hey it's coffee that's making the difference so at least it's not tea. It's just nice to know there may be an extra benefit to that head and neck of yours because of your single cup coffee consumption as long as you drink four cups of single cup coffee that is.
