Coffee Drinkers Rejoice! Caffeine & Exercise Reduces Cancer Risks

Jan 11, 2008
Good news coffee drinkers! A recent study at Rutgers University found that exercise and caffeine, used together, doubled the levels of the tumor-suppressing protein "phospho-p53". Exercise alone boosted this protein by 18% and drinking two cups off coffee increased this protein by 27%.

Although it appears that exercise and coffee each have health benefits, combining them together seems to have the greatest impact. The ability to double the level of a tumor-blocking protein is outstanding news.

The study's senior researcher, Allan Conney, believes that further research needs to be done with this combination of caffeine and exercise..."We think this points out a need for more studies to see if the combination will protect people against sunlight-induced skin cancer".

This research was conducted as a result of a previous study on Green Tea. It was found that only the caffeinated version of Green Tea helped get rid of DNA damaged skin cells. The decaffeinated Green Tea had no effect to repair damaged skin cells.

Here is How I Combine Caffeine and Exercise Effectively

1) Try to have a completely empty stomach before working out

2) 30 minutes before exercising drink two cups of black coffee or 3-4 cups of green tea

3)Hit cardio hard for at least 30 minutes, since the caffeine will have an increased fat burning effect on an empty stomach

See...I knew my "Double Tall Iced Americano" was doing me some good! Yeah...I live in Seattle and espresso is consumed about as much as water. Now don't think you can order all those fancy drinks with caramel, chocolate, cream, etc...you have to go plain...stick with black coffee or tea without sugar.

I have always been a big believer of drinking a calorie-free caffeinated beverage on an empty stomach to have the best fat burning workout. Little did I know that caffeine was also reducing my chances of getting skin cancer. This is great news to all coffee drinkers out there!
