The World Health Organization recently removed coffee from the status of a carcinogen

The World Health Organization recently removed coffee from the status of a carcinogen. This move comes after twenty five years after WHO declared that coffee could be a reason for bladder cancer. Coffee drinkers finally have got news to celebrate. The Cancer Research Team of WHO recently concluded that coffee is no longer classified as a possible carcinogen. The organization further stated that coffee does not act as a trigger for other types of cancers including prostate as well as pancreatic cancers.

The WHO with this declaration joins other major studies that eliminated the risks of coffee. Several studies have been conducted to claim that there is no quantifiable link between coffee and cancer. This dramatic announcement was made by the cancer research wing of WHO after analyzing data from over thousands of studies. The IARC official who was responsible for leading the study was Dr.Dana Loomis. In a press statement, he stated that the evidence that coffee is not a carcinogen had increased significantly, since WHO was involved in the study in 1991. It is not the first time that WHO has taken an about turn when it comes to particular substances. But, it is not an event that happens often.

It is to be noted that Americans drink around three cups of coffee per day on an average. The National Coffee Association claims that coffee is the most drunk beverage in the whole United States even preceding tap water. It is becoming increasingly popular in several parts of the world not only limited to the traditional regions of Europe and the U.S. The rate of global consumption of coffee is increasing steadily since 2011.

A study led by the Dana-Farber Cancer institute stated that coffee can prevent the relapse of a few types of cancer including colon cancer. It helped to improve the rate of quick cure. So, brew a fresh cup and enjoy!

There are very few issues that have divided Americans like abortion. The debate on abortion is one that has been raging for several years.

The simple issue of how complicated and dangerous abortion could be for a woman’s health was the main issue discussed in this legislation.

Those in favor of the anti-abortion law stated that the procedure had to be done under strict medical supervision. They argued that this law protected women from falling prey to unsafe and scrupulous abortion centers that weren’t regulated. Those who were against this law, stated that the law was made with the sole notion of preventing abortions. They also argued that the law didn’t address the issues of protecting the mental and physical health of the women who undertook that procedure.

As a result of this law, several women who wished to have an abortion were forced to travel long distances to have the procedure. Also they ended up waiting for weeks and had to pay huge amount for the procedure.

The case has been going on for than a quarter of century. In the historic ruling given by the Supreme Court the restrictions put forth by Texas on abortions was reduced from five to three. As the case dragged in the courts for several years, there have been several myths surrounding abortions. The most important factor to remember that abortions are now carried out under strict medical supervision and the health of the woman is give prime importance. Studies reveal that all the myths surrounding abortions like that it leads to cancer, results in depression and reduces fertility are totally false and baseless. Studies also claim that woman who wished for and got abortions felt a profound sense of relief.
