Drinking coffee may lower risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s: Study

TORONTO, Nov 6: Your morning cup of coffee may protect you against developing both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, scientists claim.
Scientists from the suggest that there could be more to that morning jolt of goodness than a boost in energy and attention.
“Coffee consumption does seem to have some correlation to a decreased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease,” said Donald Weaver, from Krembil Research Institute in Canada.”But we wanted to investigate why that is — which compounds are involved and how they may impact age-related cognitive decline,” said Weaver. The team chose to investigate three different types of coffee — light roast, dark roast, and decaffeinated dark roast. “The caffeinated and de-caffeinated dark roast both had identical potencies in our initial experimental tests,” said Ross Mancini, a research fellow from Krembil Research Institute.
