Caffeine stimulates central nervous system on a short term. However, the long-term impact of caffeine on cognition remains unclear. We aimed to study the association between coffee and/or tea consumption at midlife and dementia/Alzheimer's disease (AD) risk in late-life. Participants of the Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Aging and Dementia (CAIDE) study were randomly selected from the survivors of a population-based cohorts previously surveyed within the North Karelia Project and the FINMONICA… 

Tables from this paper

Coffee intake in midlife and risk of dementia and its neuropathologic correlates.

Coffee and caffeine intake in midlife were not associated with cognitive impairment, dementia, or individual neuropathologic lesions, although higher caffeine intake was associated with a lower odds of having any of the lesion types at autopsy.

Gender differences in tea, coffee, and cognitive decline in the elderly: the Cardiovascular Health Study.

Although caffeine can enhance cognitive function acutely, long-term effects of consumption of caffeine-containing beverages such as tea and coffee are uncertain. Data on 4,809 participants aged 65

Association of coffee, green tea, and caffeine with the risk of dementia in older Japanese people

This study aimed to examine associations between the consumption of coffee, green tea, and caffeine and dementia risk in middle‐aged and older people.

Association of coffee and genetic risk with incident dementia in middle-aged and elderly adults

The association of dementia and coffee varied by coffee types, and heavy coffee consumption was associated with a higher risk of AD in individuals with high genetic risk for dementia.

Caffeine intake is associated with a lower risk of cognitive decline: a cohort study from Portugal.

It is confirmed that the negative association between caffeine and cognitive decline in women is confirmed, in a cohort of adults living in Porto.

Coffee, tea, and caffeine consumption and prevention of late-life cognitive decline and dementia: A systematic review

Several cross-sectional and longitudinal population-based studies suggested a protective effect of coffee, tea, and caffeine use against late-life cognitive impairment/decline, although the association was not found in all cognitive domains investigated and there was a lack of a distinct dose-response association.

Coffee Consumption Habits and the Risk of Mild Cognitive Impairment: The Italian Longitudinal Study on Aging.

Cognitively normal older individuals who increased their coffee consumption had a higher rate of developing MCI, while a constant in time moderate coffee consumption was associated to a reduced rate of the incidence of MCI.

Midlife Healthy-Diet Index and Late-Life Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease

A healthy diet at midlife is associated with a decreased risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in late life, and the importance of dietary patterns may make more effective measures for dementia/AD prevention or postponement possible.

Green tea and coffee intake and risk of cognitive decline in older adults: the National Institute for Longevity Sciences, Longitudinal Study of Aging

The intake of green tea, but not coffee, was shown to reduce the risk of cognitive decline in older adults and no significant association was found between coffee intake and cognitive decline.

Coffee drinking in middle age is not associated with cognitive performance in old age.

The results do not support an independent role of coffee in the pathogenesis of cognitive decline and dementia.

Midlife dietary intake of antioxidants and risk of late-life incident dementia: the Honolulu-Asia Aging Study.

It is suggested that midlife dietary intake of antioxidants does not modify the risk of late-life dementia or its most prevalent subtypes.

Association of coffee and caffeine intake with the risk of Parkinson disease.

The findings indicate that higher coffee and caffeine intake is associated with a significantly lower incidence of PD, and this effect appears to be independent of smoking.

Midlife vascular risk factors and late-life mild cognitive impairment

Data point to a role for midlife vascular risk factors in the development of MCI in late life, which has been considered as a predictor of AD.

Coffee consumption is inversely associated with cognitive decline in elderly European men: the FINE Study

Findings suggest that consuming coffee reduces cognitive decline in elderly men, and an inverse and J-shaped association may exist between the number of Cups of coffee consumed and cognitive decline, with the least cognitive decline for men consuming three cups of coffee per day.

Coffee and tea consumption and the risk of Parkinson's disease

It is suggested that coffee drinking is associated with a lower risk of Parkinson's disease, and more tea drinking is responsible for this association.

Prospective study of caffeine consumption and risk of Parkinson's disease in men and women

A possible protective effect of moderate doses of caffeine on risk of Parkinson's disease is supported, with the lowest risk observed at moderate intakes of coffee/day, or the third quintile of caffeine consumption.

Coffee consumption and cognitive function among older adults.

Lifetime and current exposure to caffeine may be associated with better cognitive performance among women, especially among those aged 80 or more years, and among women aged 80-more years, lifetime coffee intake was nonsignificantly associated withbetter performance on 11 of the 12 tests.

Does caffeine intake protect from Alzheimer's disease?

Caffeine intake was associated with a significantly lower risk for AD, independently of other possible confounding variables, and may have a major impact on the prevention of AD.

Coffee consumption and risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus among middle-aged Finnish men and women.

Coffee drinking has a graded inverse association with the risk of type 2 DM; however, the reasons for this risk reduction associated with coffee remain unclear.
