Recent research from the University of Navarra and the University of Jaen in Spain, found that they can protect the body from postmenopausal breast cancer.

The phenolic acid content in them is effective against cancer cells. Phenolic acid is commonly found in various plant foods such as grains, blueberries, citrus fruits, wheat, and rice. Citing from The Independent, the research presented at the European Congress on Obesity analyzed the relationship of phenolic acid and breast cancer in 11,028 women.

Researchers examined phenolic acid intake for every woman for 12 years. During that time, researchers found 101 cases of breast cancer. The women were also asked to report their food consumption.

As a result, researchers found that people who consumed this type of chlorogenic acid, which is naturally occurring phenolic acid and found in coffee, fruit, and vegetables, have the highest reduction in breast cancer risk of 65 percent.

And for people who consume the highest hydroxicinamic acid, another form of phenolic acid, get the benefit of reducing the risk of breast cancer by 62 percent. "High intake of hydroxycinamic acid, especially from chlorogenic acid in coffee, fruits and vegetables, is associated with a reduced risk of post-menopausal breast cancer" the researchers said.
