In a cohort study, ovarian cancer (280 cases) showed no significant association with tea or coffee, the multivariable rate ratios being 0.94 (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.89, 1.00) and 1.04 (95% CI: 0.97, 1.12) per cup per day, respectively. A meta-analysis also produced no significant findings overall, though the cohort studies showed a significant inverse association for tea.British Journal of Cancer (2007) 97, 1291-1294. doi:10.1038/sj.bjc.6604008 www.bjcancer.com Published online 9 October 2007.
