I've been hearing more and more chatter around that idea.

Here's to hearing even more chatter around.... umm, what were we talking about again?

it has to do with caffeine's ability to block inflammation in the brain - a discovery that could lead to new drugs which can prevent - or even reverse - mild cognitive impairment

Or you could, you know, drink a CUP OF FRIGGING COFFEE.

It might stave it off, but it ain't a cure. My grampa spent hours every day at the corner coffee shop his first few years of retirement, and now he doesn't even recognize his wife of 60 years. Sad story.

I drink all the coffee I can get my hands on.

Yes, but will we ever know why coffee helps to stave off Alzheimer's disease?

Is this the story about strange things found in refrigerators?

If I may indulge in a bit of hyperbole: Why take aspirin when you can just chew on Willow Bark? Why take a Penicillin shot when I can mainline Penicillium Fungi?

Answer: Because Science can isolate the useful chemical, and work on making it more efficient, and possibly more targeted, for the task it needs to undertake.

I put my coffee on the stave. Now where is the stave?

Then we'd have people that don't even LIKE coffee benefiting from it. Some of them might even be Mormons.

I'm not sure how I feel about that.

You know, that's kind of an interesting religious dillema: Would taking caffeinated Aspirin or a hypothesized caffeine based Alzheimer's drug violate Mormon strictures?

Caffeine? I try to stay adequately caffeinated at all times.

I read this cool article on the internet, the other day, about how coffee can stave off Alzheimer's. Too bad nobody submitted the link and they don't green light educational stuff like that, so why bother.

Will this do?

That headline gave me Alzheimer's.

There should be a study on Mormons and see if there is a higher incidence of Alzheimer's among elderly cult members.

As someone who's mom was just diagnosed last year with Alzheimer's, I'm drinking all the coffee I can.
