Does coffee increase cancer risk? | Interviews | Naked Scientists

September 16, 2022

Liked the discussion of the paper by @stevesphd on Coffee Consumption
& Cancer Risk (https://clinicalnutritionjournal.com/article/S0261-5614(22)00313-2/fulltext). However, I was surprised that the elevation of stomach acid & GERD from caffeine was not mentioned as a potential reason for the association with esophageal cancer.

Get law enforcement out of biospecimen authentication

Not sure how meaningful this proposal is given how trivial it is to identify cell lines and individuals via sequencing. Moreover, it seems like it is trying to create “artificial silos” between research and law enforcement communities.
