Coffee, Tea Protect Brain From Tumors

Monday, 25 Oct 2010 08:44 AM


Drinking only half a cup of coffee or tea each day appears to lower the risk of developing glioma, a deadly form of brain cancer, by 34 percent. Researchers at Brown University analyzed data from more than 410,000 people who were followed for about eight and a half years, according to WebMD.

Dominique Michaud, associate professor of community health at Brown, discovered that that drinking 100 milliliters — about 3.4 ounces of coffee or tea daily — lowered the risk of glioma, but men had greater protection than women.

Both tea and coffee, which are two of the most popular beverages throughout the world, are high in antioxidants, which may explain the reduction in risk.

Other studies have found that drinking coffee and tea protects against other forms of cancer as well as brain disease, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
