On first trhought, it seemed great that AD could be hindered by caffeine.
But the numbers are way to low, so I'd be surprised if they accknowledge
this 'research'.
If they could try out an experiment over 20 years with a significant portion
of the entire population, then the result would be interesting.
Say, 40-50% of the adult population.......
The various variables could also be taken into consideration (diet, smoking
etc.).
