Caffeine In Coffee Delay's Alzheimer's and 7 Other Benefits
Over at the Huffington Post there's more good news for those of us who can't function without our coffee and the caffeine it comes with. Researchers from the University of South Florida and University of Miami have found that higher caffeine consumption is linked with a delayed onset of Alzheimer's disease. That's good news for everyone who is at least drinking 3 cups a day.
"These intriguing results suggest that older adults with mild memory impairment who drink moderate levels of coffee -- about 3 cups a day -- will not convert to Alzheimer's disease -- or at least will experience a substantial delay before converting to Alzheimer's," says study researcher Dr. Chuanhai Cao.
Of course, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing, and it's important to drink coffee in moderation just like everything else. Excessive coffee consumption is associated with cardiovascular problems, including an increased heart rate or blood pressure and irregular heartbeats. Experts tend to agree that the good largely outweighs the bad for most people, so just don't overdo it.
