Coffee Drinkers Liess Likely to Get Dementia

A study published in The Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease suggests that coffee may keep dementia at bay.

A team of Swedish and Danish researchers tracked coffee consumption in a group of 1,409 middle aged men and women for an average of 21 years During that that time ,61 participants developed dementia and 48 had Alzheimer’s Disease.

After considering numerous socio-economic and health factors, including high cholesterol and high blood pressure, the scientists found that those who drank 3 – 5 cups of coffee daily were 65% less likely to have dementia, compared to those who drank 2 cups or less.

However, Dr Mila Kivipelto, an associate professor of neurology at the Karolinka Institute in Stockholm said there’s no evidence that for people who are not drinking coffee, taking up coffee will have preventive effect.
