Interesting information. My one big concern is, I know people who have suffered this disease, and were in fact coffee drinkers. I'm sorry, but I can't be excited by this finding.

I heard Coffee is full of cancer creating ingredients Italians have such a high volume of cancer also Brazil smelling coffee roasting can cause lung cancer so many people working in coffee factories go that way its not promoted as it would cause mayhem If you have kidney problems the first thing a doctor will tell you is no coffee also with bladder or liver disorders. COFFEE is a multi billion business without it some countries would go bankrupt No more than one cup a day if you must

Thanks Nancy. It's funny how research can't seem to settle on whether it's good for us or bad. I love my two cups a day and glad it helps to protect from the dreaded Alzheimer's.

I drink at least 7 cups of coffee a week, not always everyday though. My Mom has dementia and my Uncle has FTD.

If I had 4 or 5 cups of coffe in one day, I'd be climbing the walls.
Anyway, even if it helps in one way, it hinders in many more.
