Writers, bloggers and caffeine fiends everywhere have a reason to feel good.
STOCKHOLM (AFP) â€“ Middle-aged people who drink moderate amounts of coffee significantly reduce their risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, a study by Finnish and Swedish researchers showed Thursday.
“Middle-aged people who drank between three and five cups of coffee a day lowered their risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease by between 60 and 65 percent later in life,” said lead researcher on the project, Miia Kivipelto, a professor at the University of Kuopio in Finland and at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.
Interestingly, the AFP photo shows a hand holding a cigarette next to a cup of coffee. Sorry guys, I donâ€™t think cigs are going to turn out to be healthy.
Maybe I can get into a clinical study for people who have 40 year coffee habits, but since I keep forgetting where I put my cup down I might not qualify. Next subject for study should be whether the really good roast is healthier than that dishwater stuff. And donâ€™t even mention instant. Iâ€™ve gotten very spoiled for good coffee.
