Drinking 500ml dark roast coffee brew had 23% reduction in DNA damage after 4 weeks.

The study comprised two periods of 4 weeks: a preconditioning period, with daily consumption of at least 500 ml water but no coffee, nor tea, nor any other caffeine-containing product.

I think that I would break more than just a few DNA strands before that month was finished.

I hope the effects of those 500 mL portions are additive. >100% reduction in DNA damage over here. :blush:

Must drink more coffee. Also could be an important defense against dementia.

Who was that study funded by, I believe they charge to publish articles.

Anyway off to drink a nice cup of tea.
