retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Orlando Sentinel reports that "getting regular exercise and drinking coffee have both been shown to reduce the risk of dementia in seniors."

According to the story, "Seniors who exercised regularly reduced their risk of vascular-related dementia by 40 percent and cognitive impairment by 60 percent, according to a study published in the American Heart Association Journal Stroke."

A second study suggests that "moderate coffee consumption of 3 to 5 cups per day at mid-life is linked to a reduced risk of dementia in late life," and that "substantial evidence also indicates that caffeines protects against neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease."

This is the kind of news that makes me feel very good, especially since 3-5 cups of coffee per day is a bare minimum for me.
