business news in context, analysis with attitude

Yesterday, MNB reported on a new study suggesting that coffee intake may help fight Alzheimer’s disease. Today, there is a new study saying that a daily glass of pomegranate juice also could reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s.
KC's View:
There was some other product that we think was supposed to be good for preventing Alzheimer’s. But we forgot its name.

Actually, we got a number of emails responding to yesterday’s coffee story, all of which pointed to the same thing – that the study looked at mice that consumed the equivalent of five cups of coffee a day.

The emails all wondered how much coffee a human being would have to drink to make it equal the impact that five cups of coffee would have on a mouse.

We’ve done the math. And the answer is, roughly as much coffee as we drink before 10 am.
