Drink (coffee) you fools!

Coffee and Tea Linked With Reduced Rates of Stroke and Dementia – Here’s How Much To Drink

Quote

… People who drank 2-3 cups of coffee or 3-5 cups of tea per day, or a combination of 4–6 cups of coffee and tea had the lowest incidence of stroke or dementia. Individuals who drank 2-3 cups of coffee and 2-3 cups of tea daily had a 32% lower risk of stroke (HR, 0.68, 95% CI, 0.59-0.79; P <0.001) and a 28% lower risk of dementia (HR, 0.72, 95% CI, 0.59-0.89; P =0.002) compared with those who drank neither coffee nor tea.

Chinese study; YMMV. Coming from a long line of Scandihoovian coffee addicts, I tried to pick up the habit in college, but there’s just something about the taste/bitterness (and post-coffee breath, even my own!) which has foiled me to date.

Ummm…what was I talking about now?

I believe in cherry-picking studies that support my behavior, so I'm going to continue drinking my 3-4 cups of coffee a day, although I usually drink half-caff :-)

cups
What definition of cup is being used? A demitasse, tasse à café, or
a 8oz 'liquid' measure cup? [en.wikipedia.org])

fyi, most 12-cup coffee brewers only produce 48-50oz of coffee!
To me, a cup for coffee is 8oz minimum.

Direction of causality not defined in that study. It's correlative, not causative. Also self-reported, so unblinded. But sometimes you gotta go with the data plural anecdotes you got.

Yuck! I can't STAND coffee! I think I've tried 2 cups in my adult life, and couldn't choke them down. Tea, that's a different story. I used to drink it a lot, but have since stopped. The stains they cause on teeth is one reason I don't partake these days.

What's kind of strange is lately I've been eating Jelly Bellys and the coffee flavored beans, well, I *like* the taste. confused smiley



Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.

So no tea "stain teeth", but HFCS & food coloring is OK?

In moderation, yeah.

Coffee hounds and tea drinkers seem to get addicted to the stuff and drink it all day. At least, in my circle of family and friends.
