Could coffee reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s?

Aloha kakahiaka!  (Good morning in Hawai’ian)  Here in Ruidoso, New Mexico we just say “howdy.”  Happy Tuesday morning and greetings to all you coffee fiends.   That’s fiends not friends.  I know how you really feel about coffee!  The purpose of this blog is to unite coffee lovers, especially lovers of Kona coffee, and perhaps learn a little about coffee and all the benefits of coffee at the same time.  As the legend would have it, Ethiopian shepherds first noticed the effects of coffee when their goats became hyperactive after eating coffee beans. 

Alzheimer’s disease is a condition that affects the function of the brain.  People with Alzheimer’s disease often have problems remembering things, making decisions and understanding languages. They may also show changes in their behavior.  This condition commonly affects people over 60 years old.
The cause of Alzheimer’s disease is not entirely known yet, but is thought to include both genetic and environmental factors. So far we do not have a cure for it.  Several studies have suggested that coffee consumption may be able to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.  A population-based study found that middle-aged coffee drinkers had a lower risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease later in life. The lowest risk was found in people who drank three to five cups a day.  These findings open up the interesting possibilities of the potential role of coffee in reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Do you want FREE coffee?  The first member of the Kona Coffee Fiends group who comes to the Kona Cowboy Coffee Company's Cowboy Coffee Saloon at upcoming events will get a free, that's FREE bag of CAFE PINON de Nuevo Mexico...our newest fusion coffee made with a proprietary blend of central American coffees and real New Mexico pine nuts! 

The purpose of this blog is to unite Kona coffee lovers and perhaps learn a little about coffee and all the benefits of coffee at the same time.  You can find the Kona Coffee Fiends group on Facebook and we’d appreciate it if Facebook users would “LIKE” the Kona Cowboy Coffee Company page at www.facebook.com/pages/Kona-Cowboy-Coffee-Company/222070817858553.  Just copy and paste to your browser.  You can also find us on Twitter at @jackshuster.
