Hallucinations, enemas, and now it seems to prevent skin cancer.


Caffeine May Offer Some Skin Cancer Protection
It might one day be used as an ingredient in sunscreen, researchers say

It might one day be used as an ingredient in sunscreen, researchers say.

THURSDAY, Feb. 26 (HealthDay News) -- Past studies have suggested that caffeine might offer some protection from skin cancer, and new research may explain why.

"We have found what we believe to be the mechanism by which caffeine is associated with decreased skin cancer," said lead researcher Dr. Paul Nghiem, an associate professor of dermatology at the University of Washington in Seattle.

For the study, Nghiem's team looked at caffeine's effect on human skin cells in a laboratory that had been exposed to ultraviolet radiation. They found that in cells damaged by UV rays, caffeine interrupted a protein called ATR-Chk1, causing the damaged cells to self-destruct.

coffee is the nectar of the gods until noon, unless you're on vacation or playing golf.
