Midlife coffee and tea consumption decreases risk of late life dementia.

. . .At the midlife examination, the consumption of coffee and tea was assessed with a previously validated semi-quantitative food-frequency questionnaire. Coffee drinking was categorized into three groups: 0-2 cups (low), 3-5 cups (moderate) and >5 cups (high) per day. Further, the question concerning tea consumption was dichotomized into those not drinking tea (0 cup/day) vs. those drinking tea (≥1 cup/day).

The study found that coffee drinkers at midlife had lower risk for dementia and AD later in life compared to those drinking no or only little coffee. The lowest risk (65% decreased) was found among moderate coffee drinkers (drinking 3-5 cups of coffee/day). Adjustments for various confounders did not change the results. Tea drinking was relatively uncommon and was not associated with dementia/AD. . .

    Yea…tomorrow’s .com WOD looks brutal…good luck!

  • Andrew

    Oh and…is a strict press the same as a push press? Or is strict without the hip explosion?

  • Jeremy Jones

    Strict press is no hip explosion. Arms/shoulders only.

    This one looks like fun! That weight looks like I might be able to make it straight through… that can be both a blessing and a curse, though.

    MASSIVE headache afterwords…however, a two block snack cleared that up before I even made it out of the shower…I love the Zone…and Robb Wolf.
