Abstract

About 30 epidemiological studies have investigated the role of coffee in the risk of head and neck cancers. A meta-analysis combined data published up to 2009 on such a relation, using a meta-analytic approach. For oral and pharyngeal cancer, the pooled relative risk (RR) was 0.64 (95% confidence interval (CI) 0.51-0.80) for the highest versus lowest coffee drinking, based on more than 2500 cases, with no significant heterogeneity across studies. The corresponding pooled RR for laryngeal cancer was 1.56 (95% CI 0.60-4.02). An update of the meta-analysis up to February 2013 confirmed a possible favorable role of high coffee consumption on oral and pharyngeal cancer, with a pooled RR of 0.72 (95% CI 0.59-0.87), based on about 7000 cases. A real favorable role of coffee in the etiology of oral and pharyngeal cancer is supported by dose-exposure relations and the consistency of results in different settings, populations, and strata of major covariates.
