Drink Coffee, Avoid Glioma

Tip o the hat to Dr Desert Flower for this wonderful journal article link (here) from the Cancer Epidemiology Biomakers & Prevention journal:

"Our findings suggest that consumption of caffeinated beverages, including coffee and tea, may reduce the risk of adult glioma". (Glioma, for us non-scientists and non MDs, is a type of Brain Cancer) Decaf doesn't work.

I am doing my part, 2 to 3 cups of coffee and 3 to 5 cups of tea each day - all with delicious Stevia in them. mmmmm

  1. Hey there! Thank you for sharing your thoughts about glioma. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about glioma. Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well.
    Mixed gliomas, such as oligoastrocytomas, contain cells from different types of glia.
    Gliomas are difficult tumors to treat. Recently, several investigations into the nature of glioma tumors and glioma treatments have been undertaken.
