    Coffee habit may protect against breast cancer
    Women who drank 5 cups or more a day had lower risk for a particular type of the disease

    Coffee may do more than give a caffeine boost — it could also reduce the risk of developing a particular kind of breast cancer, according to a new study.

    Women who drink five or more cups of coffee a day are 57 percent less likely to develop estrogen receptor-negative breast cancer than women who drink less than a cup of coffee a day, said study researcher Jingmei Li, of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.
