The study was conducted with 38,432 women all 45-years and older.

Researchers from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, as well as the Tokyo Women’s Medical University carried out the study.

The women had their diets followed for a 3-year period, and then took part in a 10-year follow-up.

Researchers stated that they found no link between caffeine and overall risk of breast cancer.

What they did find though was that women with bengn breast tissue who consumed caffeine in high amounts were more likely to develop breast cancer.

Researchers are now wondering if caffeine has any impact on the overall progression of breast cancer.

More research will be conducted to try to answer these new questions.

The study was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
