National Coffee Day
Alzheimer's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease and the leading cause of dementia worldwide.
There are several things you can do to prevent the disease from occurring in the first place.
This includes the usual suspects like eating healthy and exercising, but drinking coffee may be incredibly effective as well.
Several studies show that coffee drinkers have up to a 65% lower risk of Alzheimer's disease.
Studies show that coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of Parkinson's disease, with a risk reduction ranging from 32–60%.
In this case, the caffeine itself appears to be beneficial, as people who drink decaf don't have a lower risk of Parkinson's.
