Benefits of caffeine, do tell

I have been reading a lot lately about caffeine and diabetes.  It appears that caffeine can possibly help thwart memory loss in diabetics.  This made me smile, I am addicted to coffee my day does not start without coffee in the morning, does not continue without a mid-morning coffee and does not end without an evening coffee.  Yeah, at least 3 cups a day.  I am not clear on the adverse effect this much coffee has.

I am not a health professional, nor do I play one on TV.  I am just going to focus on the positive this story holds.  It appears with every cup of coffee I am fighting off possible memory loss.  It appears with every cup of coffee I am fighting off possible memory loss.  I want to point out that I am being humorous, so please do not comment that I made a mistake and posted the same sentence twice.

Seriously though, many drink coffee to keep themselves sharp in the morning.  So it makes sense that coffee can help maintain one’s memory.  My only plea is to stop testing on animals.  Not so much to save the animals though that is a good cause but because I am willing to drink coffee in the name of science.

Also, I am a human, so I would be a better case study.  Plus maybe you can name the positive effect after me.  It would be the “The Patrick Effect” then the eventual library wing named after me.  Okay I live in a fantastic Patrick-centric utopia.  Join me it is a wonderful place.  I am a nice enough guy and I would be a kind leader.  You can all be in my cabinet.  Anyway I am happy to promote the benefits of coffee.
