Tea and Coffee Might Decrease Risk of Brain Cancer

A new study suggests that tea and coffee drinkers (i.e. the majority of Brown students) might have a decreased likelihood of developing brain tumors. The study showed that heavy coffee/tea drinkers had a 1/3 smaller chance of developing a glioma, a type of brain tumor. While the news is encouraging (and gives us all the more reason to get a second cup at Tealuxe or Blue State), experts warn that, although the study found a decrease in likelihood of tumor development, it does not necessarily mean that coffee and tea can protect drinkers from brain cancer. But, the findings might help researchers discover the causes for brain tumors. So, when it’s 4 am and you’re on your third cup, comfort yourself – you’re possibly fighting brain cancer!
