Java Overboard!

A few years ago, we noted that even just a few cups of coffee each day might help "slow the progress of Alzheimer’s disease and even reverse the condition."

Turns out, more may be even better, because loading up on the brew may actually help with longevity:

"[M]en who drank at least six cups of coffee a day had a 10 percent lower chance of dying during the 14-year study period than those who drank none. For women, the risk was 15 percent lower"

And it's not necessarily the caffeine, either; regular and decaf see similar results.

I do have a problem with the article's headline, though:

"6 cups a day? Coffee lovers less likely to die, study finds"

Really? Last I looked, the risk of dying is pretty much 100%, beverage of choice notwithstanding.
