I’m going to live forever, coffee cures cancer edition
Oh, fine, it doesn’t cure cancer, but it might help prevent cancer:
Drinking more than two cups of coffee per day, or any other combination of caffeinated beverages, may lower your chances of developing skin cancer, a new reports says. The results included other caffeinated products such as soda, tea and chocolate.
The report in the journal Cancer Research found that caffeine potentially reduced the risk of developing basal cell carcinoma, a common form of skin cancer though generally considered less serious than melanoma.
“Our data indicate that the more caffeinated coffee you consume, the lower your risk of developing basal cell carcinoma,” said Jiali Han, Ph.D., associate professor at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School in Boston and Harvard School of Public Health.
Just look how long it took them to introduce Dr. Han. It must be true!
Oddly amusing note: I have no idea whether Dr. Han is a man or woman, and the story only refers to him/her as Dr. Han. I wonder if the reporter is reporting off a press release instead of an interview?
