ABSTRACT
The article looks at how caffeine may help prevent Alzheimer's disease. Researchers at the Byrd Alzheimer Institute in Tampa, Florida, experimented with mice that were bred to develop an Alzheimer's-like disease. Scientists found that after several months the mice who received only water were more confused than mice who had water spiked with caffeine. The article also discusses a study published in the "European Journal of Clinical Nutrition."
