Caffeine + Cycling 'may help fight cancer'

Postby Aushiker » Wed Apr 04, 2012 9:46 am

Now we have evidenced based research to justify the Saturday morning cafe ride :)

Caffeine and exercise may work together to ward off skin cancer, research suggests.

An early study found the combination reduced the number of skin tumours in cancer-prone mice by 62 per cent. Tumours also shrank by 85 per cent in treated animals.

Study leader Dr Yao-Ping Lu, from Rutgers Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy in New Jersey, US, said: "We found that this combination treatment can decrease sunlight-caused skin cancer formation in a mouse model.

"I believe we may extrapolate these findings to humans and anticipate that we would benefit from these combination treatments as well."

Well I'm sorted then. I get plenty of both :D

Mind you, white skin and freckles might be an opposite influence... :cry:
