Good news, coffee lovers!

A recent study at Cornell University indicates that a chemical found in coffee may help prevent retinal damage from eye diseases like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration.  Previous studies have also indicated that coffee my reduce risk of age related dementia and Parkinson’s disease.

Further study is needed but in the meantime enjoy that “cup o’ joe” knowing it may be good for your eyes and brain!
