There is some evidence to suggest that drinking coffee may have a beneficial effect on prostate health. Studies have shown that men who drink moderate amounts of coffee (3 to 4 cups per day) have a lower risk of developing prostate cancer.

Coffee is a rich source of antioxidants, which can help protect cells from damage and reduce inflammation. Additionally, the caffeine in coffee may inhibit the growth of cancer cells. However, excessive caffeine intake can cause negative side effects such as anxiety, insomnia, and jitteriness, so it’s important to consume it in moderation.

On the other hand, drinking coffee can also have negative effects on prostate health if consumed in excessive amounts or if it’s consumed too hot which can lead to scalding of the urethra, bladder, and prostate.
