Okay, how about maybe staying sharp and less clouded in your thoughts than your husband? Research shows drinking 3 cups of coffee or even tea can help older women stay ontop of the thinking game. Keeps you sharp and helps ward off the dullness of old age thinking. Hmm.. but this doesn’t seem to work for men. I guess their caffeine-o-meter is broken.
Seriously, it just may be that:
“Men and women metabolize caffeine differently or that there is a hormonal interaction,”
Quoted from The Chicago Tribune on the Caffeine story You can visit and read all the particulars.
As for me and my feeble old mind, we will continue to scarf down more than the daily required intake of caffeine. 😀
