Both caffeinated and decaf coffee showed the protective effect against cognitive decline
Drinking coffee has previously been linked to a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. Now, scientists may be closer to understanding why.
New research from the Krembil Research Institute examines how coffee helps protect against long-term cognitive decline — and it turns out that the roast might matter.

Daylight savings time is over — will you be grabbing an extra cup of coffee this afternoon?
A recent article in National Geographic looks at the latest research behind why you love (or don’t love) coffee.
Spoiler alert: It’s in your genes!
From antioxidants to acidity, how is cold brew different from hot coffee?
Cold brew is the hottest trend in coffee: The domestic cold brew coffee market grew 580% from 2011 to 2016, according to research from Mintel.
Now, new research from Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University found chemical differences between hot and cold brew coffee, which may have potential health impacts.
From health and nutrition to the consumption championship, here are some coffee-focused highlights from the (dangerously addicting) New York Times‘ digital archives, The Timesmachine:
A proposed rule may except coffee from “cancer warning labels” in California, on the basis of the scientific evidence in support of coffee and health.

Today, California’s Second Appellate District Court stayed the trial that was set to begin on Monday, October 15, 2018, in Los Angeles Superior Court, regarding whether cancer warnings are required for sales of coffee in California.
Waiting an hour or two could optimize the benefits of caffeine
Behind the Health Headlines: Caffeine
Ghosts, gremlins, the G train in Brooklyn: October is a season for all things grim and ghoulish.
For many of us, few terrors can compare to the theoretical horror of a morning without coffee. 82% of coffee drinkers have coffee at breakfast in the US, according to the NCA National Coffee Drinking Trends report.
Yet in light of the latest research, nutrition and dietary experts are suggesting that having your first cup of caffeine cup a little later in the day offers maximum benefits.
“Call it a victory for science — or maybe just for common sense.” – The Seattle Times
It was a good news week for coffee science in California.
Earlier this month, OEHHA (the state’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment agency) proposed a plan that would exempt coffee from Prop 65 required “cancer warning labels” in California after the most recent ruling in the ongoing legislation.
The statement was met with resounding support from scientists and coffee lovers alike.
“OEHHA’s Rulemaking is supported by both the full weight of scientific evidence and law,” wrote William “Bill” Murray, NCA President and CEO, in comments filed Aug. 30. The letter commended the decision and laid out the strong case for coffee in a scientific summary signed by Dr. Mark Corey, NCA’s Director of Scientific & Government Affairs, and Dr. Alan Leviton, Consultant to the NCA Scientific Advisory Group.
Simply put, the research speaks for itself: coffee does not cause cancer.
Then this week, in a groundbreaking announcement, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration sent a letter to Sacramento which emphatically set forth their support for this rule.
The drones could read social cues and biometrics to dispatch caffeine when you need it
Because this doesn’t at all sound like the beginning of a post-apocalyptic dystopia where sentient technology withholds caffeine to control the human population, your coffee may one day be delivered by drone — before you even ask.
IBM has secured a patent for a coffee-delivering drone that reads social and biological cues to know when people will need their next caffeine pick-me-ups, reports USA Today.
And why coffee myths matter.
The following post is based on an edited LinkedIn post by William (Bill) Murray, NCA President & CEO. See the original post.
Recently, there has been interesting coverage in Runner’s World about drinking coffee and exercise, examining the “common wisdom” that coffee makes you pee, and can be a harmful dietetic before a workout.
