New research reports that caffeine may prevent or delay the loss of neurological and cognitive function from dementia or Alzheimer's Disease. "Theapeutic Opportunities for Caffeine in Alzheimer's Disease and Other Neurodegenerative Diseases" is a supplement to the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.

Caffeine's bad for you. Caffeine's good for you. Oops, caffeine's bad for you. Caffeine has suffered I don't know how many of these go-rounds in the past few decades.

But hey, this week, caffeine's good for you. So enjoy it with a clear conscience, while you can. Savor the notion that you may be protecting your own neurological and cognitive function from dementia or Alzheimer's Disease as you savor your coffee or other caffeinated treat.

"The resulting collection of original studies conveys multiple perspectives on topics ranging from molecular targets of caffeine, neurophysiological modifications and adaptations, to the potential mechanisms underlying the behavioral and neuroprotective actions of caffeine in distinct brain pathologies."
