    I don't and never have drank coffee so I have no excuse for smaller brain volume's lol

    Coffee is a highly popular beverage worldwide, containing caffeine which is a central nervous system stimulant. In a study of 398,646 UK Biobank participants, high coffee consumption (more than six cups of coffee a day) was associated with smaller total brain volumes and 53% higher odds of dementia.

    Wonder whether it's the caffeine, or just something a little toxic in the beans.

    Or could weight, diet, blood type, race, how active, etc play a part.

    Are you saying less healthy people are more prone to drink coffee?

    No I'm saying some of all walks of life drink coffee.
    So I wonder how similar/different the people and their life styles were?

    So coffee rots our brains, huh? I guess that's just one more thing to add to the list.

    It makes me think of how much damage my brain has already sustained over the course of my life.

    So I may not get dementia if I stop drinking coffee? What good does that do me if I feel like I have dementia without coffee?

    It depends on the person.:);)
    I do believe that people with high blood pressure, who have a slight tendency to nervous breakdowns, they should drink coffee (espresso especially) very rarely.
    And yet many Italians with high pressure do drink it. Often. Very often.

    Then there are people like me. Very low pressure.
    So espresso is a good medicine, after waking up.
    Because it helps me have the energy I need to work. And trust me, low pressure made me faint once at school. When I was 15.

    So long life to Espresso

    So coffee is bad again. I give it no more than 4-5 years before it flips to being once again good for us to drink.

    I just drink instant coffee, which isn't very strong. I wouldn't want to get "overstimurlated". :p

    As ever with such statistical surveys, it tells you nothing about which is cause and which is effect. It may be that people with a tendency to dementia drink a lot of coffee, perhaps to make them feel more alert.

    Without any attempt at finding a mechanism by which one causes the other, such surveys don’t allow any conclusions to be drawn.
