So, is it true? Can we believe the recent headlines that “caffeine prevents dementia?”
Well, what do you know? Caffeine may well be a key preventer of dementia! At least, in very recent tests, the indications are positive.
The new study in the Journals of Gerontology, Biological Sciences and Medical Scientist found that greater caffeine intake by women over 65 is associated with much smaller odds of developing dementia.
The conclusion comes after 10 years of follow up. There were 6,407 included in the group, which showed a key reduction of 36 percent!
This, my caffeine addict friends, means two to three, 8-ounce cups of coffee, five to six cups of black tea, or even seven to eight 12-ounce cans of soda can encourage these results.
It is known that caffeine binds into pre-existing adenosive receptors in the brain. It seems this theory is well worth exploring further.
It certainly is true that our investigative scientists develop the future in sometimes strange ways. Surely we should enjoy that next cup of joe with greater reverence.
Come to think of it, I might even get to remember my anniversary this year.
