Coffee Linked to Lower Dementia Risk,” says an article in Friday’s New York Times.  It may also have beneficial effects as an antioxidant; however, it is not clear whether there is a benefit for those who don’t drink coffee to start drinking coffee (though didn’t we all start out not drinking coffee?).  At least it appears that the benefits can be gained by drinking three to five cups a day, which (I imagine) might reduce the possibility of other, adverse health effects, unlike the “French paradox” which would involve something on the order of 1,000 bottles of red wine a day, though even the French don’t do that.

Maybe I should start taking resveratrol with my venti Americano.
