Wow, they included a picture of a cigarette next to the coffee. That’s odd.

Coffee is a health food. They should stock it in GNC.

Or, maybe people who are at a low risk for Alzheimer’s have lifestyles or jobs that lead them to consume more coffee?

I drink O.J. Simpson coffee — strong, black and bitter.

moderate amounts of coffee...three and five cups of coffee

First time I've ever been called moderate!

Do you have to drink it everyday? What if you forget sometimes?

I started my love affair with coffee when I was 8 years old. I often tell people that coffee is proof that: 1) there is a God, and 2) that He loves us very much.

I knew somebody who had "Irish Alzheimer's".

They forgot everything except the grudges.

I’ve been drinking coffee everyday since I was 5. My dad would make me a cup before school. He was an old rancher who never went anywhere without a thermos of joe. I pretty much drink a pot or two everyday. Like God intended.

I can't drink more than an occasional coffee.

1. It rots my stomach.
2. I don't seem to get as much of a caffeine charge as many other people.
3. I really don't think it is a very good-tasting product.

I hope there are other ways of avoiding Alzheimer's.

Some studies have also shown that coffee helps protects the nerve system, which can also protect against dementia, she said, pointing out that yet other studies show that coffee protects against diabetes, which in turn is known to be linked to Alzheimer's.

Midlife Coffee and Tea Drinking and the Risk of Late-Life Dementia: A Population-Based CAIDE Study

Abstract: Caffeine stimulates central nervous system on a short term. However, the long-term impact of caffeine on cognition remains unclear. We aimed to study the association between coffee and/or tea consumption at midlife and dementia/Alzheimer's disease (AD) risk in late-life. Participants of the Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Aging and Dementia (CAIDE) study were randomly selected from the survivors of a population-based cohorts previously surveyed within the North Karelia Project and the FINMONICA study in 1972, 1977, 1982 or 1987 (midlife visit). After an average follow-up of 21 years, 1409 individuals (71%) aged 65 to 79 completed the re-examination in 1998. A total of 61 cases were identified as demented (48 with AD). Coffee drinkers at midlife had lower risk of dementia and AD later in life compared with those drinking no or only little coffee adjusted for demographic, lifestyle and vascular factors, apolipoprotein E ε4 allele and depressive symptoms. The lowest risk (65% decreased) was found in people who drank 3-5 cups per day. Tea drinking was relatively uncommon and was not associated with dementia/AD. Coffee drinking at midlife is associated with a decreased risk of dementia/AD later in life. This finding might open possibilities for prevention of dementia/AD.

FReepmail me if you want on or off the diabetes ping list.

Is it just the caffine in the coffee that they are talking about? If so what about an occasional no-doze tablet?

So if you lose your marbles and go to Starbucks, you might be able to find your marbles in the bottom of your Obama cup?
