Can drinking too much coffee cause breast cancer? Can I drink coffee during lactation?

Coffee and Breast Cancer

I think everyone is most worried about whether drinking too much coffee will cause breast cancer.

In fact, as early as 2008, Beijing Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital of Capital Medical University did a study on eating habits and the incidence rate of breast cancer. The results showed that the incidence rate of breast cancer among coffee drinkers was no different from that of non-drinkers, even slightly lower than that of non-drinkers.

This is totally contrary to many online theories of coffee carcinogenesis.

In the latest article released by authoritative magazine < > in 2015, a study gathered 23 research centers in 10 major European coffee consuming countries such as Germany, Britain, Switzerland and Spain, with a total of more than 300,000 people. After 20 years of statistics, the final conclusion is that whether coffee drinks contain caffeine or not is not directly related to breast cancer. Even women who drink coffee after menopause have a lower prevalence rate of breast cancer.

Coffee and lobular hyperplasia

Compared with breast cancer, women have a greater chance of lobular hyperplasia.

    First of all, I would like to reiterate that the vast majority of lobular hyperplasia of breast is not necessarily related to breast cancer. Secondly, the pain degree of lobular hyperplasia has no relationship with the severity. Third, coffee is not the culprit causing lobular hyperplasia, at best it can only be regarded as an accomplice.

If the recent physical condition is poor and the chest pain before menstruation is unbearable, it is recommended to eat a low-fat diet and reduce the intake of caffeine-rich foods such as coffee, cola, tea and chocolate, which may relieve the pain.

Can I drink coffee during lactation?

Mothers have given up coffee since pregnancy. Can I drink coffee during lactation?

My attitude is: I can’t bear it any more. I don’t need to bear it any more.

Foreign literature reports that 2-3 cups of coffee per day (caffeine is less than 300 mg/day) is safe for both mothers and babies. Milk has its own protective barrier, and caffeine really enters milk is very small. However, premature or sick babies have immature intestinal tract development and poor metabolic capacity of young liver, which may cause damage.

Of course, the timing of drinking coffee is also very exquisite, it is best to drink a cup between two meals of milk. This can avoid the peak concentration of caffeine in the body. By the time of the next feeding, the metabolism has been basically completed, minimally affecting the baby.

But then again, each baby is different, and a small amount of caffeine may also cause TA to be excited and agitated.

Of course, the mother is relieved that this is only the [exciting effect] of caffeine, and the baby will return to normal after metabolism, which has no effect on the child’s physical and intellectual development. It is really a dilemma, just try decaffeinated or decaffeinated coffee.

After all, there is no need to blame yourself for occasionally rewarding yourself on the hard road to bring her.

Can I drink more coffee?

Having said so many nice things about coffee, can you drink it as water every day?
