According to a study published Monday, conducted by scientists at the American Association for Cancer Research in Boston, drink three cups of coffee per day would reduce by 20% in women, the risk of basalioma, a form of skin cancer . A benefit that does not apply to men. For them, the percentage drops to 9%, compared to those who do not drink coffee. Scientists are, for now, failed to explain this gender difference.

"Coffee consumption may be an important option to help prevent the skin cancer, which is often treatable and is the most common," said one of the authors of the study, Fengju Song.

Scientists explain the effect of coffee through its action on a protein that plays a key role in the proliferation of skin cells damaged by ultraviolet rays of the sun.

In view of the proliferation of skin cancer, which increased by 5 to 7% per year in Europe, these results prove to be an important discovery.

Previously, other studies have shown that caffeine is beneficial against other types of diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, diabetes or liver cancer.

The study used data recorded from 72 921 participants, followed from 1984 to 2008 and 39 976 others followed between 1986 and 2008.
