Caffeine could cure cancer
Though it's no Jolt Cola, green tea has been found to be remarkably effective as a treatment for skin cancers in mice, and scientists hope that caffeine may soon be used to help kill these harmful cells in humans. Though previous studies have shown injesting caffeine can also combat skin cancer, there are doubts to whether the amount needed is suitable for human consumption.
"Whether you can give enough orally to be effective in humans is not known," Allan Conney, researcher at Rutgers University in New Jersey, says."Whether people could ingest that amount without becoming hyperactive is also a real question mark."
