Are you a fair trade, organic, shade grown coffee addict like me? I like to start each morning with three cups of the caffeinated brew — and apparently, that addiction’s actually healthy. Psychology Today reports on a new study published in Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease :
MRI brain scans revealed that women who drank three cups of coffee per day (or 6 cups of tea) had lost less brain tissue called white matter than those who drank less. White matter, like buried phone lines, is a tangled mass of fiber-like connections deep in the brain that connect neurons in the surface layers into functional circuits.
