remember yourself

"drinking three cups of a coffee a day can significantly reduce the risk of alzheimer's disease, research suggests."

but as usual, no one is sure if it's the anti-oxidants or the caffeine that appears to protect the brain.

apparently, moderate coffee drinking halves your risk of the feared brain disease. what i find interesting is that more coffee doesn't equal more benefit.

you'd think if caffeine or one of the phytochemicals was responsible, then the more you drank of the substance, the more benefit there'd be. some kind of linear relationship, you know?

perhaps the body can only utilize so much of whatever is beneficial, and discards the rest? i dunno. . .

but do keep your moderate coffee-drinking! it's a healty pleasure in many ways, as we seem to learn nearly every week.
