alzheimers n coffee, world series tonight, basketball, c2rc0d

my librarian niece she facebooked(umm new word?) me about
news of coffee n alzheimers
had also seen news blurb on this
thanks for info

so did research on it-you know googled it

definite research agree with and like

it appears that maybe 5 cups of coffee a day may
protect the brain from alzheimers
wow man would sure make you productive during
the day
all those day off honey dos would get done
could make it through the movies and through
the ball games
but would have to go pee a lot though(caffeine acts as a
wouldnt have to take any afternoon naps on days off
but would have trouble falling asleep at night though
would have some shaking of the hands during the day
would or might have an increase in blood pressure

but gosh if it worked would be glad to put up with
all that

it appears that in rats that caffeine decreases the production
of abnormal amyloid-like proteins in the brain-thought to be
the culperts in developing alzheimers

(will do a blog later about research measuring
amyloid protein in spinal fluid as a predictor of whether
you will develop alzheimers)

my white on white relative drinks a ton of coffee so he should
have some protection huh!
people who are heavy coffee drinkers (like me) tend to me
more active than those couch potatoes
it also may be that increase in activity that may be protective
as well
control of weight   control of blood pressure    exercise
control of  lipids    control of diabetes   and now
caffeine use may help prevent or slow down development of
however genetics appears to be the  big determinant of whether you will
develop the disease-man that sucks
these things may just modify the risk some

rangers vs giants
texas vs california
dallas vs san francisco
future in laws vs future daughter in law
better leave this alone

love to watch basketball
celtics vs heat
celtics won 88-80
thought it was going to be a blow out by celtics
lj woke up eventually
think heat will get  better as season progresses
why does dwyane wade spell his name wrong

today is chair to root canal day
now can get off all that naproxyn and acetaminophen have
been overdosing on
now hopefully can overdose on my snickers, peanut brittle,
banana pudding, sees candy..............
