Coffee may cut the risk of dementia by blocking the damage cholesterol can inflict on the body, research suggests. The blood-brain barrier of rabbits fed a fat-rich diet was protected in those given a caffeine supplement.

Are they attempting to imply that I should have a Mt. Dew with my steak??

Don't have time to read this right now, but I should at least skim it later.

I found this link on a Digg/Reddit clone named Fyynd, http://www.fyynd.com. Since the subreddit re-rank, Reddit seems to be lacking tech stories on the front page. Fyynd moves a lot slower, but seems be a little more harder-core techie. (For the moment, anyway.)

(I find the proliferation of intentionally misspelled domain names to be mildly amusing. Do you think I should start up a collaborative link-sharing site named "Nooz"? Whoops, already taken!)
