Radiation? Pass me a cup of coffee!

P C Kesavan, one of the researchers who discovered the beneficial effects of coffee against radiation induced biological damages writes about his research in the Hindu. He further indicates that coffee can also help against type 2 diabetes and cancer. Take a look at this current science article (pdf) if you are interested in the scientific details.

I understand from the Hindu article that Prof. M S Swaminathan has some interesting suggestions too:

Prof. M.S. Swaminathan suggests that we should develop organic coffee and coffee beans with elevated levels of caffeine, chlorogenic acid etc., for radiation workers, and others in stressful occupations.

Take a look!
