A recent study revealed that folks who drink at least half a cup or more of either beverage [coffee or tea] each day may be far less likely to develop a glioma — an aggressive, hard-to-treat,
and dangerous type of brain tumor.
So put the pot on!
In fact, regularly drinking either brew could cut the risk of a glioma by up to 34 percent.
Researchers suspect that antioxidant compounds in the two drinks probably get the credit for the benefit. These compounds stimulate activity of a protein that can repair cancer-causing damage to brain-cell DNA.
Pretty powerful stuff!
