COFFEE = Milder Risk of Cognitive Impairment? Two Studies…

I was reading the article on Lewy Body Dementia when I came across the information about studies indicating coffee may lower risk of cognitive impairment. Usually, I ignore many of the studies until I see a pattern, as so many can lack statistic significance or enough participants, a varied enough race/culture background, etc.

Since my father died of LBD in 2012, I’m very interested in news on the disease. My sister sent me the article from yahoo, then I located the other study mentioned from that article.
