A new study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute finds the morning brew may also have cancer-related benefits for men.

The report looked at the coffee drinking habits of almost 48,000 men over 20 years. Those who drank six or more cups per day had an 18 percent lower risk of prostate cancer. That's compared to men who didn't drink coffee.

With lethal prostate cancer, the association was even stronger, with coffee drinkers at a 60 percent lower risk than non-drinkers.
