Your morning coffee may do more than perk you up for the day. A recent study discovered the consumption of four cups of coffee per day may reduce the risk of malignant melanoma by 20%.
Melanoma is the fastest growing cancer in the world. 1 in 50 Americans will develop melanoma in their lifetime. In 2013, there were an estimated 77,000 new cases of melanoma and about 9,500 deaths from the cancer, according to the study.
