Here's to another cup of coffee and or tea.A new study finds the drinks may lower your likelihood of developing the most common form of malignant brain tumor in adults.

The findings add to evidence from a recent U.S. study linking higher coffee and tea intake to lower risk of gliomas, a form of tumor in the brain or spine. However, scientist's say the reports are all preliminary and that even if coffee and tea have some direct effect the impact would be small.

The findings are published in the "American Journal Of Clinical Nutrition."
