The good news: Two or three cups of coffee per day could help older women retain their cognitive skills. In a recent study funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, researchers found that women who drink two to three cups of coffee daily could be at a lower risk of dementia and other forms of cognitive impairment. Hooray!
The bad news: By the end of this year, coffee is expected to hit its highest price since early 2015, driven by the global market’s first supply deficit in six years. El Nino-related dryness in southeast Asia and a drought in Brazil damaged crops and drained supplies.
What’s a woman to do? (I’d better order another cup from the barista while I can still afford it…)
