My mom drank a couple of cups a day and lived to 85 with all her
marbles (except for the brain cells killed off by an hypoxic episode
when she had a severe COPD flareup without oxygen at hand). My aunt
detested the stuff, developed Alzheimer's at 82 and died of it at 90.
My f-i-l is 89 and considers caffeine to be poison (ditto meat and
animal fat); but though he has OCD and holds some weird lifelong
opinions is otherwise sharp as a tack and spends his days reconciling
spreadsheets by hand. Maybe if I show him the article, he'll accept a
(skim) latte or two if he thinks it'll keep him functional longer.
