Coffee, again

In June, LifeEthics reported that coffee drinkers are likely to live longer – or are at least less likely to die of heart disease.

Today, a new study on Swedes and Finns reports that 3 to 5 cups of coffee (I drink nearly a quart a day) when middle aged (I am) decreased the chances of Alzheimer’s dementia by 60 to 65%.

Not only will I live forever, I’ll know it!
