As the summertime approaches, many of us tend to sleep less and fill in the lack of sleep with a cup of coffee. But can these two trends be affecting our chances of warding off or developing Alzheimer’s disease?
In this week’s edition of Alzheimer’s Research News You Can Use our expert-reviewed articles discuss how a single cup of coffee may be tied to reduced risk for Alzheimer’s disease and our second article discusses how new research has added to a growing body of evidence that a single night of not sleeping led to increased levels of beta-amyloid, a toxic protein that builds up to form plaques in the brains of those with Alzheimer’s disease.
As always, if you would like to learn more about the above-mentioned studies, please read the below articles and for more information about Alzheimer’s; please visit our website at www.alzinfo.org.
Thank you for your interest in learning more about the research progress being made at the Fisher Center.
Together we can end Alzheimer’s disease!
