As people age, the chance for acquiring certain diseases increases, so many people are very careful about what they do and do not eat. Coffee lovers hate to think about giving up their favorite beverage, so there's good news in a recent study that one of the benefits of drinking coffee is a lower risk for dementia.
The study, recently published in the Journals of Gerentology, followed 6,500 women between the ages of 65 and 80 for 10 years. They found that women who drank 2 to 3 cups of coffee each day had a 36% less chance of developing dementia. The caffeine seemed to be the main factor, and consuming more than 261 milligrams of caffeine seemed to be the baseline that made a difference.
Dementia primarily affects older adults, and while it has become more prevalent, it does not have to become inevitable. Worldwide, 47.5 million people have dementia and there are 7.7 million new cases every year. It is important for older adults to do anything they can to prevent the onset of this disease which causes not only memory loss and confusion for the one diagnosed, but great stress for their family and caregivers.
Those who are fans of coffee can now feel good about indulging several times a day, and if you're not a coffee drinker, perhaps it's because you've never had really good coffee.
