Works for Me

September 17, 2012

Last week I read another article on good dietary habits. But this one said to eat an ounce of chocolate in the morning.

Finally,  a dietary theory I can get behind!

You can say that again. Now if they can only prove that caffeine makes a person younger.

Well, here you go.

From the You Docs:

When rodents with Alzheimer's symptoms were fed about 500 milligrams of caffeine a day -- about five cups of regular coffee -- not only did they do better on memory and thinking tests, but their brains also had a 50 percent reduction in beta amyloid protein, a compound that collects in your brain and tangles your ability to think.
This research confirmed what has been found in large studies of humans -- that six or more cups a day decreases the risk of memory loss or Alzheimer's by more than 40 percent.

They've also got a blurb saying that it can help decrease the risk of skin cancer.

So go crazy.
