Could coffee protect from Parkinson’s disease?

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.  Coffee is the second most-sold commodity on Earth.

Parkinson’s disease is a disorder of the brain that causes shaking (tremors) and hampers movement and coordination. It most often develops after the age of 50, although sometimes it can occur in younger adults. To date, there is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease.  Since 1968, scientists have known that coffee drinking is related to a lower risk of Parkinson’s disease.  More recently, a meta-analysis (which evaluated 13 published studies) suggested that coffee drinkers had 30% less chance of developing Parkinson’s disease in later life.  Some studies suggest that this could be due to certain substances in coffee that help protect the nerve cells in the body from damage.
Do you want FREE coffee?  The first reader of these blogs who comes to the Kona Cowboy Coffee Company’s Cowboy Coffee Saloon at upcoming events will get a free, that’s FREE bag of CAFÉ 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. 

You know you’re a coffee fiend when your eyes stay open when you sneeze!  So enjoy your coffee, make it Kona, and remember, Kona is the home of the Hawaiian cowboy…and we had cowboys in Kona before there were cowboys in Texas!
