There has been always an indication that coffee could be related in preventing cancer risk. Therefore, many studies were involved to check the accuracy of coffee and its effect on cancer especially prostate cancer (CaP). According to the article Coffee Consumption and Prostate Cancer Aggressiveness among African & Caucasian American in a Population-Based Study, there were two studies that examined the effects of Coffee on cancer risk; Meta-analysis and a report from the Health Professionals follow-up study (Arab, Su, Ang, Fontham, Bensen, Mohler, 2011). The meta-analysis indicated a protective relationship between coffee consumption and risk of CaP. The report from the Health Professionals follow-up study indicated that there is no link between coffee intake and CaP. Both cases did not observe and study the relationship between coffee consumption and CaP among African-American which they have a high rate of people diagnosed with this type of cancer. Hence, this study that this research seeks is the effect of coffee consumption on Prostate Cancer Aggressiveness among biracial population, African-American (AA) and Caucasian-American (CA). It studies whether coffee consumption can reduce the aggressiveness of prostate cancer among these races (Arab et al., 2011).
In this article the authors used a population-based rapid case ascertainment study design to precisely attract CaP aggressiveness upon diagnosis among AAs and CAs. The participants were recruited from July 1, 2004
