No Jive: Coffee Protects the Brain

The BBC reports new research showing that the daily intake of caffeine helps protect the brain.

Caffeine given daily to animals in a recent study gave the creatures a clear advantage in sustaining the 'blood brain barrier' while being fed a high-cholesterol diet. The cholesterol was prevented from damaging the barrier, as it normally does. This kept harmful chemicals in the blood from reaching the central nervous system and offered protection strokes, dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

Coffee and tea and the java and we:
A cup a cup a cup a cup a cup!
