Coffee Goodness

And the people said “Protect Thy Brain

Coffee may cut the risk of dementia by blocking the damage cholesterol can inflict on the body, research suggests.
The drink has already been linked to a lower risk of Alzheimer’s Disease, and a study by a US team for the Journal of Neuroinflammation may explain why.
A vital barrier between the brain and the main blood supply of rabbits fed a fat-rich diet was protected in those given a caffeine supplement.
UK experts said it was the “best evidence yet” of coffee’s benefits.

I just hate demented bunnies.

Drink coffee.
If you won’t do it for me, do it for the bunnies.

    Screw the bunnies (not literally, Ken). I don’t want them drinking my coffee.

    So these past few years when my mom has been lying to my seventy- and eighty-something great-aunts and great-uncles (“Oh, sure, it’s decaf!”), she’s actually been protecting their minds? Wow. Do I have to tell her she was right (again)?
    BTW that is the saddest bunny picture I think I’ve ever seen.

    I had to give up the caffeine due to migraines whenever I went a couple of days without. I’m going right back – and THIS time I’m just having a cup every day. Screw withdrawl and screw cholesterol-induced dementia.
    Coffee – hells yeah!

    I really like coffee, but you’ve got to be careful — espresso for example is HIGH in cholesterol. There’s plenty of other natural ways to control one’s cholesterol and contribute to a healthy brain without the negative impacts of caffeine. A really good reference of these can be found at the Dietary Supplement Information Bureau.
