A new analysis looking at coffee drinking and the risk of Parkinsons disease shows that drinking 2-3 cups of coffee a day cuts the risk by a quarter. The report looked at 26 studies and coffee drinkers had 25% less risk. It is published in The Journal of Alzheimers Disease. In fact, in this same Journal there is another report that states that coffee drinkers have less risk of devleoping Alzheimers. The mechanism is not understood and its not a reason to start drinking coffee but should bring added comfort to Gourmet Coffee lovers.
However time and again studies show that moderate enjoyment of gourmet coffees, seem to have no ill effect on health.
