    I don’t believe coffee has the same neuroprotective properties as tea does yes it has good polyphenols which is a strong antioxidant but I think that’s it.

Also the more tea you drink the higher protection you get from it.

    BTW they recently discovered that actinobacteria is what’s causing Alzheimer’s disease they did autopsies on deceased patient’s brains for research and found numerous strains of the bacteria which caused them to get the disease. I have whipple’s disease which is the same exact bacteria t. whipplei, actinobacteria, and actinomycetes are all the same thing. When they find a cure for actinobacteria then it will be a cure for many, many different diseases. This I’m certain of I was a respiratory therapist for 10 yes in Philadelphia where I also taught clinical before this sickness took hold of me.
