Noticed several news outlets are writing articles about a soon to appear study in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease that found higher caffeine level in the blood of older patients with memory loss seemed to reduce the risk of develop Alzheimer's.

Quoted Text
There may even be a reason to start for people in their late 30s and up, he says. "Aim for an average of three, 8-ounce cups of coffee per day in the morning after eating breakfast."

The Author's think it is the caffeine. If there untested presumption is correct, you would just need to drink enough green tea to get about 300 mg of caffeine each day.

This sounds like a very good idea.  

I've noticed that as I advance in my "mature years" I enjoy caffeine so much more.  And it's not as a heavy stimulant like I used to seek when I was younger.  Caffeine from green tea gives such a sense of well being (maybe it's the naturally occurring Theanine) and never the jitters any more like I used to get with caffeine.

If that is so, my mother should have been super protected from Alzheimer's!!!  She used to drink 4-8 cups per day and has had Alzheimer's for about 5 years now.

I'm guessing that the protective effect is from the caffeine and not the coffee itself.  Coffee is probably a flat-out avoid for her.  When I used to drink coffee, it was having a very destructive effect on my gut.

Assuming an 8 ounce cup of green tea contains 15mg of caffeine to 75 mg of caffeine one would need between 1 and 4.7 liters. 3 liters would be right in the middle of the range.

I never needed a SWAMI to know that caffeine is an avoid for me. I would never be able to tell if it would even benefit me or not I would just be too high as a kite from all the caffeine. Not to mention the accelerated heart rate and blood pressure that I get from consuming it. Good thing I hate coffee.

Ahhh . . now we get to the heart of the matter!  lol!  The hidden message is that chocolate consumption doesn't want to take a back seat to the green tea or anything else that isn't chocolate.

Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

I heard about that too.  Is it really just the caffeine that does it?  I guess nobody knows.

Coffee gives me acid reflux these days.  The only kind I like is iced, french vanilla (no dairy or sugar just stevia). I never really drank it that much though. It's more like a treat for me.  Tastes like those coffee cooladas from Dunkin Donuts.

With all ten loops in my finger prints, I have assumed that I am prone to Alzheimers; and coincidently I enjoy coffee (it is good for me too) and hope this will help me in my years to come.

My Mom's an A and she drinks lots of coffee. Does not help with the memory loss though. She can't remember 10 minutes in the past.
