Researchers at Florida’s Alzheimer’s Research Centre have revealed that increased caffeine intake in mice can prevent and even reverse the effects of Alzheimer’s.
This news bodes well for we caffeine-obsessed humans who don’t get much done prior to our first cup of Joe and can’t make it through the afternoon without a second.
Dr Gary Arendash and his team of Floridian researchers were careful to point out that the results might not be as effective in humans. But that’s a mere footnote, as we now have scientific evidence that two strong cups of coffee a day keeps the fog away.
Dr Arendash also made a point of questioning past statements about the pernicious health effects of coffee consumption, saying (really quickly), “For individuals who take in caffeine on a regular basis, what we would call habitual caffeine or coffee users, there really isn’t any substantial evidence showing increase in blood pressure or increase in arrhythmias occurring.”
