Coffee Assists Women's Memory

medicine: 20 mg. Aripiprazole in the mornings.
diet: three to four meals a day
exercise: walking, dancing
weight: 133 lbs.
mood: o.k.
sleep: 8 hours

I lost 12 lbs in the last month and three quarters.  I lost approximately 2 lbs. a week, which is an acceptable amount to lose a week.

An article for women sixty-five and older (or for those preparing).
Women sixty-five and older who drink three and over three cups of coffee a day perform better on memory tests compared with those who drink one or less cups of coffee a day.

The study, involving 7000 women, also "raises the possibility that caffeine may even protect against the development of dementia"

Men's memories are not affected in this way by coffee.  The reason is unclear.
