Certain individual antioxidants may be able to protect against prostate cancer, whereas others have no beneficial effect. Here, the impact of total antioxidant intake on prostate cancer incidence was examined. A weak inverse association was identified for dietary antioxidant intake and prostate cancer incidence, which was accounted for by coffee intake. A positive association was found for lethal and advanced prostate cancer and antioxidant intake from dietary supplements. The results suggest that different sources of total antioxidant capacity have different effects on prostate cancer risk and point toward coffee as an important subject of study in this context.
