Coffee ‘reduces dementia risk’
Lots of positive stuff here in this mornings Australian about our much loved brew.
To quote a few points before posting the link:
Researchers say people who drink between three and five coffees a day are up to one-fifth less likely to contract Alzheimer’s disease.
That's 20%, a significant number.
Polyphenols are also found in fruit, vegetables, olive oil and red wine and are credited with the health benefits associated with the Mediterranean diet.
More good news for me, I must be an honorary Italian, enjoy all of these things regularly.
Three to five cups a day produce the “optimum protective effect”, he said.
Three cups a day for me, the message gets better and better.
The report was published by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee, which was established over 20 years ago by major European coffee companies including Nestlé, Lavazza and illycaffè.
Hmmm, not so sure about this, I'm a born cynic and have become more so with age.
Studies over the past few years have found coffee can boost memory and exercise performance and help ward off cancer. Alzheimer Europe vice chairwoman Iva Holmerova said the latest revelations were “very encouraging”.
As well as comforting!

Very informative thread….Thank you for giving us such a wonderful information. I know that COFFEE has a lot of health benefits that’s why I really love to drink coffee every morning.
If coffee really reduces dementia risk, then how do you explain some of the exchanges you and I have had?
(Hahaha. Just fooling mate, no malice intended.)
Carry on! :-)
Easy answer Andy, as Willie and Waylon said "Old age and treachery always overcomes youth and skill"
