A new study that concludes three to four cups of coffee a day may reduce the risk of prostate cancer is good news for men — but must be part of a balanced diet to work, according to Dr. David Samadi, chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.

"One of the things that I want people to be careful about is, don't put a lot of milk and sugar in your coffee because if you're going to have four cups with tons of sugar, that defeats the purpose and leads to obesity and diabetes," Samadi told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"But now, more and more we're seeing that some of these antioxidants in coffee really are working well at reducing inflammation, reducing the risk of cancer," he said.

"So what I would tell people is, if you have gastric reflux, if you have any kind of esophagitis, inflammation of the esophagus, if you're pregnant, if you have heart issues, you should stay away from coffee and talk to your doctor. Everybody else, this is a great drink. It's the secret to health. I stand behind it."

Samadi added that drinking less than four cups or more than four cups won't work.

"If you take one or two cups a day, nothing happens. You won't get much of a benefit. Over six cups is absolutely not healthy for you and it causes a lot of heart issues," he said.

"Something between three to four cups a day is when you will get the best benefit of coffee. But of course, you want to have a balanced life. You want to make sure that you exercise and eat healthy. But this is something on the side that can actually help you."
