However, among women who consume the equivalent of more than five cups of coffee, HRT may increase their risk of the neurological disorder, said the researchers from Boston's Harvard School of Public Health.

There is more to this article at the link I provided.
Just thought I would pass this along.

Does this linkage stop you from drinking coffee or change any of your drinking habbits as a woman? Parkinson's Disease + Coffee Links (Caffeine) seems to be possible. Decaf anyone?

can't be

Again, we're all healthy in our family. My aunt, mother, grandmother, sisters and cousins are all strong coffee drinkers. No problem with them. There's a lot of publications out there - - you just need a reputable journal.

have a cup!
