Cups of Coffee a Day, Keeps Dementia Away

In recent study conducted in Florida USA tells us that high level of caffeine in blood (1200ng/ml) of patients suffering from minor cognitive impairment (MCI) avoided progression to dementia. The amount of coffee needed to attain such threshold is 3 to 5 cups daily having 5 cups or 500 mg caffeine as target.
